Whirlpool duet washer, door locked light on door open no other lights on unable to set control


The control can be locked to keep the buttons from activating during external cleaning or to help from small children starting the machine.

To activate or deactivate press and hold the "end of cycle signal" button for 3 seconds.

The load appears to have finished, but the CONTROL LOCKED light is on. The door is not locked and the washer is still full of water. Pushing cancel does not reset it.

I have a control locked alarm on a whirlpool duet washer??


Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.

Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: Whirlpool Duet Washer - Error F21 (What is this) ...


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out. Door locked? Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes & try the door. F-21 filter blocked.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: no power door locked...


Check your washer plug, tighten connections, fuse, try another electric gadget on the wall mains to see if there is power there. If power solved here:

Depress the "end of cycle" button on your panel for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes, try the door. This is the child lock feature, do it again and it locks.

Whirlpool duet washer door is open. I can't close it because the latch is stuck in the "locked" position.


The first thing to try is to hold the cancel button for 15 seconds. The more labor intensive solution is this: Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.
