I have a front load whirlpool washer. Could you please tell me how to get the washer out of control locked mode?


Without the model number of your washer, it is difficult to advise you on how to unlock the controls. Most controls will have the instructions for locking/unlocking on the front panel. Check for a lock icon on the controls. Some washers have a specific lock button with a padlock icon on it. The normal method for locking/unlocking is to hold the button for 3 deliberate seconds or until the control unlocks. This may take as long as 10 seconds on some models.

Whirlpool dryer is locked control locked.


the controls on our unit can be locked by holding a button for 3-5 seconds.
look on the control panel for a "paddle lock" symbol next to one of the buttons. cant tell you which one as they do change from year to year.
just find the right button and hold it in for a few seconds. then it will beep and should unlock after that.
