It displays 'control lock' with red light


Here are a few Different models as i do not know yours.
How to Unlock the Control on Whirlpool Duet eHow

Maytag - To unlock the controls, press and hold the CYCLE END SIGNAL for 3 deliberate seconds or until the control lock light goes out. If the control locked light will not turn off, I recommend unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in and see if the controls will respond. If not, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer. You could have a failed control console or a bad electronic control board in the washer.

Kemmore- Unplug for 10 minutes.

GE washer - Make sure that the control for the washer is not locked. If it is, press and hold the LOCK button for 3 deliberate seconds (or until the control unlocks).

There is not another way to reset the control board other than completely unplugging the washer as you have been doing. Since the display light up and works, the washer apparently has electrical power supplied to the control board and control console. You could have a failure in the console that is preventing the start button from working. A failed control board or a problem with the door switch could also prevent the washer from starting. Make sure that the washer door is firmly closed.

If the washer will not start after checking the control lock and the door, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.
Good luck More info would be helpful. Make and model. Is always a plus.

Hi; Our washer displays "Control Panel


jazzbassic,
On the front of the unit is a control lock button, you will need to push and hold that button unit the control panel is unlocked. This should solve this problem. PS you may have pushed the control lock button when you either attempted to open door or just learned on panel, either way this does happen from time to time.

A red padlock symbol is showing on the panel of my WCVH6800 front load washer. I can't change any of the wash settings. How do I fix this?


Here's what the Padlock represents:


Lock Function

You can lock the controls to prevent any selections from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle. children cannot accidentally start the washer by touching pads with this option selected.


To lock the washer, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds (on some models use SIGNAL button). To unlock the washer controls, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The control lock icon on the display will light up when it is on.


NOTE: The POWER button can still be used when the machine is locked.

How to resolve door lock problem


Is this a door latch problem that is being displayed on the control panel? Is the door mechanism broken? Is the door latch working, but is jammed and will not open? Is this a control panel lock problem, where the washer is locked and will not operate? There are several different causes of door latch problems.

If you are experiencing problems with the door locking, or if the washer is displaying and error code of "Fdl" or "Fdu", the door latch commonly needs replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575840-replacing_a_door_latch

If this is a matter of a door jam and you cannot open the washer, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_

If this is a Control Lock issue where the control panel is locked and you cannot use the washer, the following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

LE message, will not lock the door - Daewoo front load


Hello there:
This is a fairly common problem with these newer machines Here are the 2 most common fault codes on these machines I have listed below this post.
If the machine is still under warranty i would suggest using it normally they will repair this for free
and some of these have a recall on these machines
so i would contact the appliance center where you got this from and see if you can get it repaired ok?

"LE " persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace switch, linkage, lock solenoid or control board. 1E persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace lid lock switch or control board.

Kenmore HE washer displays DL failure code-what can we do to trouble shoot before calling a home repair? This is actually a 45088 if that makes a difference


A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.


Potential Causes
• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and
Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Ohm out the door lock solenoid and the door lock switches. This is most conveniently done at the central control board--use the wiring diagram/tech sheet to locate the proper pins to test from. Unplug the washer before starting work.
hope this helps....

Control Locked


Locking controls
The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You
can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle
or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is
lit, all buttons are disabled. You can lock the washer while it is
operating.

To lock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

To unlock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
