    SOURCE: "control locked" light is on washer

    The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

    With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

    If this is a Whirlpool manufactured appliance (such as Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet), 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 button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). Please post back and let me know if you need further assistance.

    Washer locked. door lock light blinking. start button light on. won't do anything.


    IT IS POSSIBLE YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE DOOR LOCK OR CONTROL BOARD. CHECK YOU OWNERS MANUAL TOO SEE IF YOUR WASHER HAS A MANUAL RELEASE SO YOU CAN OPEN YOUR DOOR. USUALLY YOU CAN ACCESS A MANUAL RELEASE BY REMOVING THE FRONT BOTTOM PANEL AND REACHING UP UNDER THE DOOR LOCK AND FINDING A PLASTIC PULL PIECE WHICH YOU CALL PULL AND UNLOCK THE DOOR. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE WASHER FIRST. CHECK THE DOOR LOCK MECHANISMS TO SEE IF ANYTHING IS BROKEN AFTER YOU GET THE DOOR OPEN.
