Re: Contol Lock remains ON and I cannot get Control Lock...

Try "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds. Works for other machines...............And please rate me if helped

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.

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.

Control locked led indicator is on ,there no contol at all

Press & hold the 'end of cycle' button on the right side of panel for 3 seconds. Child lock button, you do the same thing again & it locks. You dont want kids bathing in the machine, no. Pl rate me nice.
