If you look at the panel it will tell you what button(s) to hold for 3 seconds to unlock it,IF that doesnt work, try removing the power from it and having it reboot itself.

Good Luck!

Look for the button that has a small padlock icon on it and press and hold for about 5 seconds. That should clear the lock.

Model GEW9200LWO control lock light


Even tho the door lock light is working the switch has dropped a leg supplying power to the rest of the machine. Repace the door switch and you should be good to go. Even tho you have a GE it was made by frigidaire for GE. Common problem with the newer switches. They have gone back to the originals as the replacement for this.

Whirlpool YGEW9250PW1 Electric dryer control locked problem


Hello,
I had the same problem, but my husband, who is an engineer, figured out that if you pull out the light bulbs that are not reading the correct volts on his volt meter, the control lock light will shut off and the dryer will start working. If you do not know how to do this, you can always buy a new control panel. I know this sounds to simple to be true, but we have bought several new "brains" (control boards), tried unpluging the dryer for days at a time, had an certified whirpool technician come out (who recommended buying a new control board), and nothing worked.
