If the control lock is on there is a button to the far right last button on the bottom marked control lock. hold for 3 secs to unlock. F11 and F DL are independent issues all together, for this i would remove the top panel and check the wires ont he control board located across the back wall( focusing on the far right harnesses ( these are the door lock(DL) wires, as well as the wires connected to the door lock which can also be access reaching down the front panel while top is off

Controls locked


The Control Lock is a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

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 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 serious problem 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.

look closely at the machine console, the most right set of buttons, the lowest possible one is the control lock button, youll need to hold it in for 3-5 seconds to unlock the control panel(child lock)
