Dishwasher lock?

How do you lock the dishwasher drawer for travel?
I know I should have thought of this before we got on the road, but in my defense, it's our maiden voyage heading home from dealership. And I've never had an RV dishwasher before!
I can't get to the owner's manual right now while in the road, so I'd appreciate any help.
The dishwasher has no buttons on the outside. They are all located inside on the top of the drawer and there is no "lock" button that I can see.
Thanks!

Make and model of dishwasher? Mine has a lock button for manual locking. Also can be programmed for automatic locking.

Hi there Mrs. P. (You know me in real life ). We had a Fisher Paykel DD24SCX7 dish drawer dishwasher installed a couple of months ago. Took the coach from the service shop to the storage place, and then to our first post-dishwasher stop at a park in Carroll county for a couple of weeks. The dishwasher worked great! Then, we moved on to our next destination in Forsythe county. Well, during that move, the dishwasher was fully loaded with dirty dishes. Well, you can probably guess what happened. During a left turn, the centrifugal force caused the dishwasher drawer to slide out, and rearrange the configuration of the dishes. At that point we decided it was not a good idea to travel with the drawer full of dirty dishes.

I'm not aware of any locking mechanism built into our dishwasher. I'm toying with the idea of putting some sort of manual catch on the cabinet to keep the dishwasher drawer in place during transit. Maybe a velcro strap, or some sort of L shaped lip that can be removed or rotated out of the way when we are parked.

We had a Fisher Paykel (it's now in a landfill) and it had a button sequence to electrically lock it. Check the owners manual.

I assume you have the remote. Hold the button on the remote you'll hear a beep, keep holding the button until you hear three beeps and you can hear the drawer lock. To unlock hit the button once.

Yes it does! I'll try this!
And I'm breaking out the manual!

If that doesn't work try holding button until you hear two beeps. That locks my dishwasher.
