Try pressing an holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button on the front panel in for 3 seconds. This button is used to lock/unlock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls when the dryer is not in use. A designed safety feature. If this does not work for you, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

    Tip

    The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


    Hi.

    If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

    Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

    The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


    When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

    If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

    Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
    If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

    To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

    If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


    If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

    If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

    In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


    Regards.

    I don't know the model # but its a kenmore oven and my daughter left her finger on the stop button too long and so the oven door automatically locked us out. I can't find the book for it


    According to the eHow website,
    "press and hold the stop/clear button for 3 seconds to unlock the door."
    (it's the same to lock the door in the first place.)

    According to the Just Answer website, either press and hold the stop/clear button for 3 seconds or 5 seconds, (A beep will sound. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked and the lock icon light has cleared.) or you have to press the button 3 times quickly.

    Controls locked


    The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is lit, all buttons are disabled except for Pause/Cancel and Start. You can lock the controls while the washer is operating. To lock the controls: Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds. The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows. To unlock the controls: Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds or until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
