Control locked


If you have a front loader then Press and hold the "end of cycle" button for 5-10 seconds and it will reset the child safety lock.
If the control locked light will not turn off, I recommend unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in and see if the controls will respond. If not, You could have a failed control console or a bad electronic control board in the washer.

I have Maytag Neptune front loader washer. When


Hi.

Error LR means Locked Rotor.

Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.

Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.

My husband stacked my dryer on top of the washer today with the kit purchased with it. Now my washer has the control lock light on, I can't find my instruction book. How do I get the control lock off?


The following link explains how to correct a control lock problem on a front loader washer:

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

If this is a Maytag (which is the image you have this posted under) these instructions still may apply. The newer model Maytags are manufactured by Whirlpool (makers of the Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet) and many of the conrol features are the same. I suspect that in the process of mounting the dryer one of the front panel control buttons may have been leaned against and locked the controls.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this resolves your problem.

Contol Locked


This advise 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 Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific 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.

Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off


Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

Control Locked


this is a child safety lock feature to keep them from turning on and off the machine, you must hold down the cycle end button for 3 seconds to unlock the machine, you will find these instructions labeled right on the machine and in your owners manual.
