My dryer ran through the dryer cycle turned off. Hours later I noticed the "control locked" light is on and the dryer will not even light up to set program.


Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, depending on the model dryer you have, look on the control panel for a button or buttons that have a "key" symbol or the word "lock" underneath. Normally, you would hold the button down for 3-5 seconds until the lock light goes out. This is the indication that the control panel is unlocked and normal operation can be initiated. The manufacturers put a panel-lock feature on the units to prevent "busy little hands" or others from changing settings, for unattended safety, etc. Dishwashers, ovens, ranges, and other appliances also have locks for the control panel. If your dryer initiated a control lock by itself, this would indicate a shorted button on the control panel--soft touch buttons and glass touch-control panels are notorious for doing this. If I have the model number, I can usually provide the part number and/or procedure for getting into diagnostic mode to see any stored error codes(if any) which would help pinpoint a problem. I hope I helped you!

This is indicating an open door circuit. Since the circuit cannot complete, you cannot program any cycles and the "clean filter" light will remain on until you can do so. You will find a technical data sheet inside your dryer, either just under the top panel, or inside the lower panel, if so equipped. It will explain how to test the control board and the door lock assembly.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer Lockout function stuck


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Asko 24 el dryer does not run,no indicator light,Mod 10776110,LMBent


Check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer breaker pair. Push off, then on to reset. If breakers trip again, you have a short circuit within the dryer case--usually the heating element(s).

Hello,
Your control panel must be dead. You can buy a new control panel.
Follow the steps in Page #4 & Page #5. Itshows how to get access to remove the control panel and control board:
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service...D19_PILP_A.pdf

Once you lift the control panel up and hinge it back, you can take the control board off, then remove the control panel itself from its hinges in the back, then install the new control panel and your existing control board.

Unplug your dryer first.smile.gif

Good luck,
Please rate my solution.

Water light on saying full but water container is empty


The problem is with the lower water tank float switch, it is stuck. Take off the right hand side panel (as you are facing the machine) at the bottom you will see a spring mechanism for the belt tension. Beside this there are 2 electrical connectors. Take them off and spray with wd40 or similar. Whilst off give the plastic box they fit 2 a light tap with a hammer to free the float switch. Reconnect and try. If this fails you can over-ride by leaving the left hand of the two plugs off. This will get your machine working but you will not have an indication as to when the water container needs emptying so you will need to remember.

Whirlpool dryer calypso touch pad stopped working


CHECK YOUR INSRUCTION MANUAL TO SEE IF THERE IS A CHILD LOCKOUT FEATURE ON THE CONTROL PANEL. USUALLY, THERE IS A TOUCH PAD TO HOLD FOR 5 SECONDS TO LOCK/UNLOCK THE CONTROLS. YOU CAN ALSO TRY UNPLUGGIN THE DRYER FOR 5 MINUTES TO SEE IF THE MICRCOMPUTER WILL RESET.
