It says CONTROL LOCKED.... how do I get it unlocked??


  • 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. The control panel is now unlocked, and the washer is ready for use.


  • Lock the washer again by pressing and holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button until the "Control Locked" indicator light turns on.

    Control panel locked,how to unlock


    The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

    With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

    If this is a Whirlpool manufactured front loader, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


    These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual.

    If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue).

    Please post back if you still need assistance. I hope this helps you.

    Control locked will not unlock


    It might be a child lock. You have to press and hold the a button for 5 seconds. You have to find which button yourself by looking at the panel (it usually says which one is child lock on it). Could "end of cycle" or "load signal" button.
