Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Control locked. How do I unlock it.
The Duet washer is a good machine, just unfortunate Whirlpool engineers used
oxidative circuit board coatings. All the circuit board
connections are oxidizing causing the machines to have faulty connections.
We have fixed the problem using this information.
UNPLUG the machine first . Take the top off (3 screws in the back) , remove the mother board box from the frame housing and remove the lid. Now you can see the circuit board.
Carefully remove ONLY one (clip plug-in) at a time. Scrap with a (knife or sandpaper or steel wool ) the edge connector where that plug was, on the circuit board removing the oxidated metal (it may not look oxidated but must be cleaned), Next put ( vaseline or mineral oil) on the edge connector where that plug was, NOTE: Vaseline or mineral oil is a non-conductive oil and will not effect electronic operation but will prevent further oxidation and the erratic operation of the mother board will cease.
Now do the next plug and repeat until completed.
NOTE: We recommend only one plug at a time so you do not get confused where each plug belongs.
Put the cover back on the mother board box and reattach to the frame, then put the lid back on and screw it down. End of any problems.

if it is stuck on, like the power went out and when it was restored mine did this once, pull the power cord from the wall and count to 10 then plug it back in and see if that works.

To unlock the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold the End Of Cycle Signal button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off.
NOTE: When the machine is running and Control Locked light is on, the machine can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.
