Most whirlpool washing machines have a control lock reset button on the right hand side of the washer. Press and hold it for around 5 seconds and it should be back to normal.

This is a designed safety feature of the washer that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can be inadvertently locked by leaning on the control panel, or during power outages. The instructions are printed on the front panel of the washer and are included in the owner's manual.

If the washer door remains locked, you can use the manual release to open the door. The following link explains how:

If these steps do not provide you with a solution, you may have a more serious problem than simple operator intervention. Please let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

Mod.# ggw9200lwo display says control lock, dryer won't work.


You may have inadvertently locked the operator console. This is actually a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the operator control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls. The following link explains how to correct:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

These instructions are for most Whirlpool manufactured front loaders. This includes Kenmore and Maytag models too. Keep in mind, all washers do not have the same control features. If your features differ from the ones I have outlined, the instructions should be either printed on the front panel, or in your technical data sheet. The tech sheet will be located inside the washer behind the lower kick panel. If not behind the lower panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this has been helpful to you.

The Dryer says "Control Locked"


Try pressing an holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button on the front panel in for 3 seconds. This button is used to lock/unlock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls when the dryer is not in use. A designed safety feature. If this does not work for you, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Control lock stays on and nothing else works on the panel. No other lights, no other controls. Disconnected power overnite but nothing changed.


The sound button is the button that you wish the sound to go on when the load is finished drying. Thanks for the advice, I was worried I just bought them and already broken.
