Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
On some front loading washer there is a button that when held for 3 to 5 seconds will lock the control panel so young children can't change settings. Look at your control panel for writing under a button that will tell you to hold down to lock or unlock panel.

The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel.
If this is a Maytag Epic, Whirlpool Duet, or Kenmore Elite, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:
These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual. If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is lit, all buttons are disabled except for Pause/Cancel and Start.
You can lock the controls while the washer is operating.
To lock the controls:
Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds. The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.
To unlock the controls:
Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds or until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
