Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

LE error code has popped up & suddenly the control lock is on, I have pressed the control lock & it counted 3,2,1 & nothing happens, won't unlock & LE is still there


if the door locks and wont unlock
LE error
then your machine still has water in it from the last spin/ wash

i think its a blocked up waste outlet
or the pump is blocked up

you need to check the machine is draining correctly and in a timely manner.,..
or it will fail
you need to fully drain the machine then turn off the mains
wait 5 mins and the door will then open
then check the drainage...

Machine wont turn on, front panel partially lit up


Make sure you don't have the child-lock or control lock function turned on. Check your owner's manual to find out which key activates and de-activates that function. If that's not it, then you probably have a bad control console.
