The following link explains how to unlock the control panel on a Whirlpool Duet:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

This is a designed safety feature of the washer that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can be inadvertently locked by leaning on the control panel, or during power outages. The instructions are printed on the front panel of the washer and are also included in the owner's manual.

If these steps do not provide you with a solution, you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator intervention. Please let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: control lock light stays on.

the button you need to push and hold is the cycle signal. it should be the bottom button on the far right side. push and hold until the light goes off, it most likely will take more than 3 seconds. The button your looking for should also have a small icon of a padlock .

Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with Whirlpool Duet washer however; your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE/CYCLE SIGNAL button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The contol lock red light is lit and I can't get it to work


Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.

Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off.

Carefully and slowly look for a button, I dont remember which, but there is a button that duels as a child lock if held for three seconds, find this and hold for three seconds to fix:)
