My dryer is one of those ones with all the bells and whistles, and from experience with other bell and whistle appliances as well as computers, sometimes pull the plug eletrical plug that is, let it sit for 3 or 4 minutes and plug back in sometimes it needs that much time to reboot and get the kinks out. Not sure if it will help or not but it might be worth a try.

The Contorl locked light is on. I can't get the light to turn off and I can't get the dryer to start.

The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

These instructions are printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual. If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

You may have a bad control board that is giving it a bad signal. It will not heat until that is fixed. Call the manufacturer and tell them what is going on and they may be able to shed some light on it.

Dryer problem

Here is the link to the owner's manuals etc. if you need it; Check the first owner's manual, page 14. It says; " Control Lock. This feature allows you to lock your settings to prevent unintended use of the dryer. You can also use the Control Locked feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation. To enable the Control Locked feature when dryer is running: Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for3 seconds. The control is locked when a single beep is heard and the Control Locked status light is on. When the dryer is off, it is not necessary to press the Control On button before activating the Control Locked feature. To unlock: Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off. NOTE: When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but can?t be restarted until the control is unlocked." Hope this helps :)
