Thermador Dishwasher Major Issues

Thermador Dishwasher Control Panel Lockout

The control panel lockout feature on a Thermador dishwasher can sometimes be enabled accidentally, preventing the dishwasher from responding to your commands. To address control panel lockout, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the Lock Icon:

    On the control panel of your Thermador dishwasher, look for an icon or button that represents the control panel lock. It is typically a padlock symbol.

  2. Press and Hold the Lock Button:

    To disable the lockout feature, press and hold the lock button for several seconds. The specific duration required may vary depending on your dishwasher model. Refer to your dishwasher’s user manual for precise instructions.

  3. Check for Panel Unlocked Message:

    After holding the lock button for the appropriate amount of time, check the control panel for a message or indicator that indicates the control panel is unlocked. It may display “Panel Unlocked” or a similar message.

  4. Test the Dishwasher:

    Once you have unlocked the control panel, test the dishwasher by selecting a wash cycle and running a short cycle to ensure that it is responsive and functioning as expected.

If these steps do not unlock the control panel, consult your dishwasher’s user manual for model-specific instructions on disabling the lockout feature. It’s important to follow the guidelines provided by the manufacturer to ensure the correct procedure.

In the event that you are unable to unlock the control panel or experience persistent issues, consider reaching out to Thermador customer support or a professional appliance technician for further assistance. They can help you diagnose and resolve any underlying problems with the control panel or the dishwasher’s electronics.
