On the GE GFWN1100LWW the Lock light indicates that the Child Lock (Panel Lock) is enabled. Press and hold the Lock touch pad for 3+ seconds. The light will go out. (Note: if you hold that button for too long, the lock will disengage and then reengage.)

The lock is useful to avoid having someone change the settings or start the washer when they shouldn't. (For example, you don't want to start or change the cycle settings on the washer while cleaning the control panel's surface.)

I hope this helps.

Had the same problem, this fixed it!

I had the same problem.....The start/pause button would flash during a cycle and the washer would not finish the cycle. After reading on this forum that there is a filter/strainer inline with the drain, I tried this solution.
Remove the (3) screws that hold the lower front panel (Just below the door)
Once the panel is removed, you should see a white plastic strainer hooked to the washer drain.

Please a large bowl under the opening and unscrew the knob/handle, pull the filter/strainer out and clean all of the lint/trash out of this area.

My filter/strainer was clogged with a baby sock, 2 doilies, a fewe pennies, 2 dimes and lot's of lint.
I believe all of this debris was causing musty odors in the machine as the lint would stink due to dampness.

Once I cleared out this filter/strainer the problem and my odors went away
I wish GE would add this "EASY" step into the owners manual for proper care and maintenace.

Thank you for letting me know about this filter/strainer as it did resolve my problem

Try this, press the pause/cancel button twice. Open the door, ensure there is nothing blocking the door and close the door fully. Open the detergent drawer fully and re-close the drawer. Select Quick wash and press start.

If this does not correct the problem, call for service under warranty.

GFWH1200DWW GE front load washer won't unlock red lock showing


From an article I found online:

See if manually opening the door will reset everything. Unplug the washer and remove the lower front panel like you're going to clean out the drain catch. Once you remove this panel you can reach up behind the upper front panel and pull down on the small plastic pull tab attached to the bottom of the door lock assembly. This will manually unlock the door so you can open the door.

Now once you have the door open, plug the washer back in and see if you can start another cycle.
