Control locked light is on. Have replaced control board but control still locked


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Hopefully, this simple advice will save you an expensive service call.

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?


Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.

    Hello I have a general electric dryer model DBSR463EG6WW serial number TR775112A and was wondering how do I bypass the start switch because it is broken


    please there is no need to start your dryer without the switch. you can easily replace the switch yourself just follow this instructions below to replace your switch. things you will need are philip and hex and nut screwdrivers, putty knife and Replacement "start" switch. then Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet. Slide the dryer out from the wall and disconnect the dryer vent from the dryer's back panel.
      1. Loop a piece of string behind the "Start" button and pull forward on the string to pop the knob off the switch's post.

      2. Access the interior of the control panel. Depending on your model of dryer, there are several ways to access the interior of the control panel. On older dryers, there will be an access panel along the back of the control panel that can be removed once all of the retaining screws have been removed. On newer dryers, the control panel is held in place by screws in the front or spring clips. Remove the plastic end caps on the control panel and remove the screws underneath. If your dryer has no end caps, slide a putty knife under the corners of the control panel and lift up on the knife to release the clips. Rotate the control panel toward the rear of the dryer to access the interior.

      3. Unplug the wires from the switch by sliding them off the contact terminals on the switch. Make a note which wire connects to which terminal so you can easily connect them to the new switch.

      4. Press the release tab to unlock the switch and slide it out of its socket. If you have an older dryer, remove the retaining screw to remove the switch. Slide a new switch into the socket and press it down until the release tab locks into place. If you removed a retaining screw, replace the screw. Reconnect the wires.

      5. Rotate the control panel back down on the dryer or replace the rear access panel. Replace the knob and reconnect the dryer vent. Plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.

    Dryer stops when I release push to start button


    Timer may need to be replaced. You can test it with an ohmmeter or test light.
    You can do the same with the push button. If you have more problems, then the main control could be faulty
