Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Control Locked light is on...

The "Control Locked" light is lit, and I don't know how to exit that status to start a wash cycle. I unplugged the machine, and that didn't change anything. The machine doesn't respond to any other button commands....

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.

I cannot get the control lock button to go off? I have tried unplugging it for 30 min. or more and plugging it back in. The control lock is still on. I have tried turning the washer on holding the start...


Hello Don, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your information posted...control locked light is lit on the control panel. Tried holding the start/cancel button. It is still locked even after unplugging for 30 min (that usually works)

...this is actually a fairly common problem with these washers (including Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Amana, (some)Kenmore to name a few built by Whirlpool) I hear about both on-line and doing on-site service.

The solution, however is usually pretty simple. As long as your washer is indeed the Whirlpool as listed above, give this a try and let me know how it goes.

I don't know what led to you pushing the "start/cancel" you've already tried, but this is the correct method and at the risk of being redundant...Press and hold the "END OF CYCLE /CYCLE SIGNAL" button as you count to 15...this will reset the control if there is no underlying issue.

Good luck. Let me know how it turns out and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. If this solves the problem, please take a moment to rate the info provided here and a testimony on your experience here at FixYa today is appreciated.
