HI,

Please hold the "end of cycle" alarm button for 3+ seconds to unlock it.This will fix the issue.

    If that doesn't unlock it then just unplug all the cords of the washer for 4 hours,even the power cord and allow it to reset.After 4 hours plug the cords back in and it should be unlocked.In case it doesn't then hold the "end of cycle" alarm button for 3+ seconds.

Control Locked Light on washer? How do I undo?


The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel.

If this is a Maytag Epic, Whirlpool Duet, or Kenmore Elite, 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 issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

NOTE: If you cannot locate your owner's manual, you can download or print a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link and you will find your manual listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format.
