The Dryer says Control Locked how do I fix it

Which brand/model of dryer do you have? For most dryers, you need to press and hold either one button or a pair of buttons at the same time to toggle the lock on and off. Frequently the correct button or pair of buttons will be indicated with a small padlock or child's face. Some LG dryers are nice; the button is labeled Lock/Unlock. Press and hold the button for 3+ seconds until you hear a beep and see the alert go off. The Whirlpool Duet (and the Kenmore equivalent) require you to press and hold the End of Cycle button for 15 seconds. On at least some Frigidaire dryers, press and hold Select and Options for 10+ seconds.

The control lock prevents someone from changing the settings or starting the dryer running when it shouldn't.
If the appropriate steps for your washer fail, try unplugging the dryer for a while. If the lock remains enabled, the control panel isn't communicating properly with the board. Either the panel will need replacement or the board itself.
I hope this helps.

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.

First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.

Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer won't start

Did you take the shipping blocks out? They are inside the machine. You will need to remove the access cover on the back and look in, you cant miss them. Good luck

Whirlpool Duet GGW9200LL1 will not start

The electric flash does not sound cool, It sounds like you have a door switch problem. Check to see if the door switch button is in tact. If it is , you may have to go after the door switch itself. Try this, press more time, less time, more time, less time buttons in that order, the whole panel should light up, open the dryer door, you should hear 1 beep and OE displayed, If you have this the door switch is ok, Catriver

Whirlpool Duet Steam Dryer Beeps 3 Times But Does Not Start

Brand new unit - same problem. After an hour of investigating, I found the issue.
You don't actually have to SLAM the door. If you look closely, there are 3 separate pins that must latch. One is a simple push-button style which latches no problem.
The others are little prongs at the top and bottom of door. The bottom prong latches cleanly, but the top one will not latch because the door is a bit too flexible.
Close the door normally, then firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab, then you press and hold the start button. The dryer starts normally.
