SOURCE: control locked light is on on my whirlpool duet

This advice 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 Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific 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.

Thanks

Open the door and look at the latch on the right side of the opening. Just above the hole the door latch fits into is a small switch. It should be sticking out about a quarter of an inch. You should be able to push it in and out easily. It is very common for these to break. If it is broken, the door latch assy will have to be replaced. About $65 for the part. You may be able to break a round toothpick or something else about that size to use as an actuator until you can get it repaired. Just stick it into the broken switch with about quarter inch sticking out. Then carefully close door. Post back to let me know if this helps or not.

At Lowes you can purchase foam rubber pads 4"X5" pack of two for $3.50. If walking forward and after cecking level and washer pads are tight, place half of one pad under each of the two front feet. Place the sticky side against washer feet. Solved my problem.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

Whirlpool duet washer won't start


Hi Danielle_347 ;
My husband is a sales manager of a large appliance store he said
he thinks this is what may wrong ; You have either one or two buttons
on the washer that says control lock (not the light - a kind you can push
in) If you can find it hold it in for 3 seconds this should do it. If not or
if you cannot find it he said please put the model # up because
different models have different solutions. I Really hope It works.
Sorry I can't do videos.

Press the "End of Cycle Signal" button, the last button on the bottom right, for 5-10 seconds. That should resolve the problem.
