A tell tale sign of a failed control panel. Irregardless of brand, Dryer usually has a 1-year part and 1-year labor warranty. Pull out your proof of purchase (POP) and go to the manufacturer's website to find a servicer near your area (usually search by zip code or miles radius). Call the recommended servicer in your area and provided them with POP when asked. Repair turn-around time is usually 4-6 business days. A trip to the laundromat or installing a clothesline... take your pick :-)

Best Regards.

Thanks for using FixYa. To reset the dryer you’ll need to press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 10-15 seconds. If still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Gas duet. Mod: GGW9250PWO Ser: MR3604435. Front panel under Status: "Control Locked" light is lit..nothing else works, including Control On button. Dead. Can the dryer be reset??

is the other lights DIM(partially lit)?
If so it could be one of the following.
1.) Intermittent ribbon cables between the control board and the Interface board (one with the buttons) Reseat all four cables.
2.) faulty control board.
3.) faulty Input board.

Brand New Whirlpool Duet 9450 Error Code PF

This is a problem I've seen before, or something similar. I think you've got a bad connection on the neutral wire. Either in the plug or at the panel. Have electrician check the neutral wire back to the panel from the plug.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
