Controls Locked - How to Unlock?

All of a sudden the controls on our washer are locked, and we can't figure out how to unlock them? Does anyone know how to unlock this feature? Nothing will work with it locked.

    It is flashing F02 and the water will not drain out. The door won't open.

    I have found the 3 hex screws under the 'kick panel' by feeling at the base of it along the floor (ours is on the floor, no riser). Was able to remove the screws. How does one 'remove' the panel? I don't want to break anything

Hi Sears Tech Too!
I don't see any hex screws pn the kick panel. The only ones I see are on the inside of the door. I see now that the Model is a Duet GHW9150PWO. Can you help????

These are seperate problems, F 02 on whirlpool is a drain issue, this is were you need to remove the three hex screws on the kick panel below the door and using a bucket remove the cleanout on the pump and drain what water comes out and remove the filter and check the pump for damage. The other problem is a duel feature button that needs to be held for 3 seconds to unlock, I am fuzzy on the location, look carefully for the writing blends in with the panel.

Controls locked


The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is lit, all buttons are disabled except for Pause/Cancel and Start. You can lock the controls while the washer is operating. To lock the controls: Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds. The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows. To unlock the controls: Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds or until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.

My control is locked. How do I unlock the controls?


The Control Lock is a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel and is usually not an indication of a washer malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool Duet series FRONT LOADER, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


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 (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.
