One of the buttons on the front panel will lock and unlock the control panel. The instructions are printed right next to the button on the control panel (I can't remember exactly WHICH button it is). Take a close look and you should find it. All you have to do is press and hold the button for 3 seconds to unlock it. This is a designed safety feature that prevents small children from manipulating the controls.

Control lock is on and dryer won't start


Unplug for about a minute and plug back in. If that doesn't get it, ca ll the mfr if you don't have a manual. Something is telling it not to operate until you fix it.
