Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The control locked light is lit and it will not allow me to do anything else. I have pushed every button and it is not responding. How do I reset this and how did this happen? Help I need to do laundry! Thanks for any assistance. washer lights come on but washer will not lock so cycle can start
I had the same problem. If you will hold the "Drain & Spin button" in for approximately 4 to 5 seconds it unlocks the " Control Locked" issue.

I just had the same problem, to fix it press the button for drainj/spin
for 3 seconds.

I followed dpgord suggestion and held down the "Drain & Spin button" for a few seconds and it fixed it.
Thanks, you probably saved me the cost of dinner in a nice restaurant. Who knows, with today's prices you may have saved me air fare to Hawaii.

Trouble, did you try to press and hold the end of cycle signal, this usually unlocks the control. Catriver.

Press and hold 'dry' & 'spin', shd unlock OR
Try holding the "end of cycle" button down for 5 or 6 seconds. You must hv done it accidently, it is the child lock device. Pl. rate if helped.
