Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

The contol lock red light is lit and I can't get it to work


Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.

Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off.

Front door is locked and I cannot restart machine. Indicator light says "f d/l". How do I unlock the door?


Disconnect the machine from the outlet. Prop up the lower front edge of the machine with a block of wood or cushion the top rear edge with cloth and lean it against the wall. Remove the three screws securing the lower toe panel to the cabinet and pull it down then out.

Reach up and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly along the inside of the front panel. Gently pull down the manual door unlocking tab until a click is heard. Open the door when the click is heard.

After six failed attempts by your machine to lock the door F22 flashes.
Causes & Procedure:
Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
Door switch or door unit failure.

1 Unplug / disconnect washer.
2 Check door switch lock unit.
3 Check wire harness connections to door switch/lock unit & the
Central Control Unit (CCU)

Fault 22
Push the door to make sure it is locked firmly (try some WD40 on the door mechanism on machine, not on door, to ease out any lock jam & try the door open/close with the power off the wall) I'm giving you tips to avoid the so-called techs zooming for your wallet.

Fault 28
The communication between the CCU & the MCU (motor control
unit cannot be sent correctly.

1 Unplug washer / Disconnect power
2 Check wire harness connection to the MCU, the motor & CCU
Check communication of the CCU board within the housing.
Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3 Check the drive system for any worn or failed components
4 Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the
MCU connectors.
5 Verify CCU operation by running the Diagnostic Test or any
cycle after plugging in.
Will try getting back re the door lock. Desperate i know, so am i.

Pushing Start Button only results in "Beep, beep, beep"


Need to check that the lid is shut properly and the door is locking. You don't mention an error code in the display. Make sure there isn't one showing.
