    the control locked button was lit when we got home from a week away and we can't seem to undo it. I tried unplugging the machine for a while, but the control locked button remains on.

I have a code of loc coming on and my dryer wont work how can I fix this issue??


The control panel is locked. on the control panel, there will be either a "lock" button that you hold down for 3-5 seconds to unlock, or it will have "lock" in small letters with a line pointing to 2 of the option buttons. hold the 2 buttons it points to for 3-5 seconds and it will unlock. the control lock is a child safty feature that will not allow any the washer to work until it is unlocked. P.S. to put the control panel into the lock mode, is the same way as you unlock the control panel.

I have a Oasis, model 110 270 826 02, serial #CT3270410, that I just had the touch pad ERC control part (8564392) replaced last week. Today when I went to use it, the DU comes up on the control panel...


The DU error code indicates that the control detects a problem with the washer door (lid) unlocking. In this situation, the failure is normally caused by a failed door lock assembly. I provided technical information on this failure in the first image below. You can use this information if necessary to verify a failed lid lock assembly. The control is apparently sending the voltage to the lid lock mechanism to unlock the door but is not sensing that the lid is unlocked. There is a chance that you have a wiring failure or a bad control board so it is best to thoroughly diagnose the failure if possible before replacing components. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. If you determine that you have a failed lid lock assembly, you can use the procedure shown in the second image below to replace this component.

Control Panel lock is on. How do you unlock it?


you need to look at the control panel. it will have a picture of a lock next to 2 buttons. push and hold both buttons for 5 seconds and that will unlock the controls. thats all it takes and it should be fine after that.

I have a Whirlpool Duet front loading HE Washer. My controls are locked how do I reset? I have tried everything I can think of. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
