    Thanks for the help. I had unplugged the power cord for over 20 minutes, but that didn't help. I took the top off the washer and unplugged the control panel ribbon cable. When I plugged it back in everything worked fine.

You need to diconnect power to the motor control board for 3 mins and see if you can clear thr code. If you remove the bottom panel there will be a wiring diagram and error codes. This may help you as well. Let me know how it goes.

It displays 'control lock' with red light


Here are a few Different models as i do not know yours.
How to Unlock the Control on Whirlpool Duet eHow

Maytag - To unlock the controls, press and hold the CYCLE END SIGNAL for 3 deliberate seconds or until the control lock light goes out. If the control locked light will not turn off, I recommend unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in and see if the controls will respond. If not, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer. You could have a failed control console or a bad electronic control board in the washer.

Kemmore- Unplug for 10 minutes.

GE washer - Make sure that the control for the washer is not locked. If it is, press and hold the LOCK button for 3 deliberate seconds (or until the control unlocks).

There is not another way to reset the control board other than completely unplugging the washer as you have been doing. Since the display light up and works, the washer apparently has electrical power supplied to the control board and control console. You could have a failure in the console that is preventing the start button from working. A failed control board or a problem with the door switch could also prevent the washer from starting. Make sure that the washer door is firmly closed.

If the washer will not start after checking the control lock and the door, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.
Good luck More info would be helpful. Make and model. Is always a plus.

Lid will not lock, Washer will not start: I press


There might be the issue of the lock as the control board tries to send signal to close the lock but it can not. This is common issue with the lock more than the control board.

Washer won't start, control lock lite on?


Try unplugging the washer for 30 minutes. When you plug it back in, the power board should reset and allow you to start a new wash cycle.

The "Control Locked" light is


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.

The locked light stays on but the top load door is not locked, and the washer will not start. I have unplugged the washer but still the cycle will not start.


What is your model type a FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

Are you up to troubleshooting the issue? We would need to see if the Left or Right hand lid lock is signaling the Control Board incorrectly. This could involve using a DVM to measure +12 VDC signaling from the Lid Locks to the Control Board.

Control lock is on, can't start washer


The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance.

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, or by leaning against the control panel and is usually not an indication of a washer malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool Duet series, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are 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 issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

The control panel on my Whirlpool Duet model # GHW9100LW1 reads control locked. How do I get out of this?


There is a control lock so noone can start the washer washer or change your settings after starting the washer. There is a subscript under one of the option buttons that says (usually not very dark or prominant) Control Lock Hold for 3 seconds. Hold this button in for 3 seconds, sometimes slightly longer and the control lock should turn off. Most are not aware of this feature because it is never used. If this does not solve your problem unplug the washer for about five minutes and try again, if problem still persists please repost.
Thank you
