Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The "control lock" light is on and I cannot start the washing machine. I have pushed and held the "pause/cancel" button without any luck--nothing happens. I have also unplugged to washing machine and left it unplugged for about 30 minutes, plugged it back in and the light is still on. Any other suggestions?
Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button to lock or unlock the control panel. The instructions should be printed directly below this button. I hope this helps you.

Look Close at the bottom left of your control pannel. There is a button you hold or two buttons to hold (depends on model) to unlock the control panel.

The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is lit, all buttons are disabled except for Pause/Cancel and Start.
You can lock the controls while the washer is operating.

Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds. The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.
To unlock the controls:
