Contol on light blinking, kitchenaide front loading automatic washer, two years old

I have reset the washer by using the power off, holding it down twice. I have unplugged and plugged in the machine. I have checked the circuit breaker. The machine ran fine this morning. It started blinking tonight before I even loaded it. It is a holiday weekend. It is 24F out there with flurries predicted. I have laundray to do and no where else to take it. HELP!

The control lock light on. Control panel not working. How do I get the contol lock suspended?

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.

I have a Kenmore HE2 front load. It is blinking F-01. I tried pressing reset twice but it only lets me hit it once then everything goes off. Thanks

I have an old machine almost 30 years old and don't have these problems it is a simple machine with knobs. After all these years still works good.

Only light on is control lock, no other controls work

you need to hold the contol button down for three sec. to release other controls.

My Maytag Epic MFW9700S Q0 Washer lights come on and blink for each selected cycle. When I hold the 'start' button in the cycle doesn't begin. It is not a control issue.

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. You can search for the meaning of
the error code on the site.Don't worry about the
timer, they hardly ever go bad.Good luck with it.
If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
