The kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 9 I opened the door and threw something else in and now a light is on thar says controls locked and it wont do anything


There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.

The panel says control locked and the machine will not do anything


Press and hold the End of Cycle button for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked indicator turns off. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control and to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch if pressing and holding the End of Cycle button does not work. Replace the control if unplugging and the pressing the End of Cycle button fails to unlock it.

Washer lock


The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and usually is not an indication of an actual problem with 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, 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, Maytag Epic 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.

Electric panel on stove is locked after a power outage everything else works fine, light and stove top, but panel to oven is not working at all it will not let you press anything


have you tried resetting the power to the complete stove by cutting the power to the complete stove and reconnect5ing after a few minutes, it might bring the normal operation to the clock and control circuit, I do not see any other component that would cause a lock up mode on the control panel other than the electronic circuit itself< AT ABOUT A HUNDRED DOLLARS IT MAY BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE A REPAIRMAN TAKE A LOOK>
