Press and hold the "END OF CYCLE SIGNAL" button for three seconds and it will unlock the control panel. At least, I think that is the button for the Whirlpool Duet. If you look closely at the front panel, it will clearly state "Press and Hold for 3 Seconds to Lock" on one of the panel buttons (should be all the way to the RIGHT HAND SIDE). This button is designed as a safety feature to prevent small children from being able to operate the washer and inadverntenty getting locked inside the unit. If holding the button fails, unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. I hope this helps.

Control locked is on. How do i reset this mode ?


The Control Lock is a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent 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, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured appliance (such as Kenmore Elite, Maytag Epic or Whirlpool Duet), the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

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


These instructions are also 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 significant problem other than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). Please post back and let me know if you need further assistance.

Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

When washer was off it filled up with water and overflowed will a water inlet valve fix this. this is a whilpool washer frontload ghw9100lq1


Yes, it should. The only way water can enter a washer when off, is through a stuck inlet valve, or by siphoning water from a drain hose installed too deeply in the stand pipe. If your machine had enough water coming in to overflow, that definitely sounds like a bad inlet valve.
