The child lock on my LG front loader washer is now at about 5 minutes each load. How can I SUCCESSFULLY turn the thing off???


i think your issue is either the door lock itself or the control panel. i would start by unplugging the unit(or tripping the circuit breaker), then hold in the power button for about 10 secs--this resets many LG washer's electronics. then plug back in an see if that helps. i do not think your issue is the child lock feature, but rather the safety door lock feature. good luck.

Lid will not lock, Washer will not start: I press


There might be the issue of the lock as the control board tries to send signal to close the lock but it can not. This is common issue with the lock more than the control board.

Control locked


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. You also cannot unplug the washer to reset it. The Control Lock 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, 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 you find this information helpful.

The control lock lite is on my kenmore elite washer. How do I reset it, so that I can use the washer?


Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Control is locked


Have you tried pushing and holding the End of Cycle Signal" button in for 3 seconds? This button is used to lock and unlock the control panel as a safety feature to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The instructions should be printed on the control panel near the button.
