My front load dryer is showing a loc on its display. Can't find anything wrong with the lock. Is that what that code means? Nothing in my manual on it.

SOURCE: Kenmore Front Loader stuck in "LOC" and every button produces "ERR"

Look for the 2 buttons on your that have a lock symbol.  Pushing & hold both for 3 seconds.  This toggles the child proof mode.

SOURCE: control locked light is on on my whirlpool duet

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Thanks

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load, ERR LOC, washer won't run

Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!

How do I reset my Frigidaire Affinity front load gas dryer when the LOC is displayed


Likely solution as I do not have the full model number of your dryer.

This means dryer control board thinks your machine is locked--- to get it out of lock mode normally do this:

press and hold "Options" and "Select" at the same time until it unlocks

If it doesn't unlock within 20 seconds you have a bad control board and it needs to be replaced.

see page 11 in this manual.

LOC showing on screen


Hello Annie, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I see you are still receiving error code "LOC" even after replacing the door lock assembly. Let's try unplugging your washer once again to determine if it is a false error code. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn your washer on. Before selecting a cycle, press OPTIONS and SELECT at the same time for 20 seconds until "LOC" is no longer displayed. If the error code does not clear, then your washer more than likely may be experiencing an issue with the control board or wiring harness. I hope this information helps to some degree.

Frigidaire affinity dryer loc


LOC is a generic lock code meaning the door was either locked manually or accidentally. Also LOC will lock the control panel and can be manually locked as well. Try to reset the unit for about 10-15 minutes and retry.

Loc


It means the control is locked to avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the dryer. Press and hold the Options and Select buttons for 10 seconds or until the “LOC” on the display is cleared. Locking the control is done the same way it is unlocked.

Have a kenmore front load washer and shows pau 45 in the display. Whatever button i press shows err cannot do anything with the machine.


LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

Hi,


"LOC" indicates that the control panel settings are locked. Press the SELECT and OPTION button simultaneously to toggle this 'feature' on or off. This will fix the issue.
