I tried to turn off my breaker and the dryer still didn't unlock. On my washer it is two buttons at the same time, on the dryer it is the end of cycle control button only. Just hold for 3 to 5 seconds until you hear the beep and it will unlock.

The controls on our unit can be locked by holding a button for 3-5 seconds.
look on the control panel for a "paddle lock" symbol next to one of the buttons. cant tell you which one as they do change from year to year.
just find the right button and hold it in for a few seconds. then it will beep and should unlock after that.

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.

Whirlpool dryer control locked is on


Turn off the breaker to the unit, for at 15 minutes, then back on, and it might reset itself, if not, I would have to know a couple things....is it an electronic control panel? If it is an electronic control panel, there are error codes, that I can find through the model and serial numbers....and then walk you through it.

What does F-1 mean on a Duet front load dryer? Our dryer's lights will turn on but, the dryer will not start up. At first we thought the control panel was locked out. But, it wasn't.


The "F-1" error code means a failure occurred with the electronic controls.. This could mean that wires are broken, the electronics shorted out or a manufacturer's default error shut the washer down.

Prevention/Solution: The electronic control panel needs replacement. Find your dryer serial number and search for the part online. This is a lengthy job that usually requires a repairman unless you have dealt with and repaired dryers before.

If your dryer was purchased within the past couple of years, the dryer could be covered under the warranty. Visit the Whirlpool customer service page for more information or Whirlpool-Duet-Dryer-fault-codes

Hope this helps.
