HELP! I have a whirlpool HE3 frontload washer and it is stuck on "Control Locked". I did try holding "end of cycle" button for 3-5 sec. and I also unplugged washer for at least 30 min. as suggested with no luck. I have always repaired my owen washer/dryer with the assistance of this sight...thank you! but this one has me baffled. Any suggestions? I'd rather not pay the big bucks.

You can manually open the door by first unplugging unit from power,then remove lower toe kick panel under door,reach up to find the door latch assembly and feel for a small tear-shaped plastic tab located on bottom of door latch and pull downwards 1/4" till you hear a click and door should open manually

Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with Whirlpool Duet washers however, your whirlpool duet washer can be 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 whilrpool frontloader and it is stuck on "control locked" how do I unlock it?


Look for the End of Cycle button on the control panel then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked indicator turns off. There's actually a marking under the button saying "Hold for 3 Seconds to Lock/Unlock Control". Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control and to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch if pressing and holding the End of Cycle button does not work. Replace the control if unplugging and the pressing the End of Cycle button fails to unlock it.

I was doing a load of laundry and the washer "froze" i tried to cancel the load but it wont stop.... i ended up unpluging it and even when i plugged it back in its still stuck!!!


Locking controls
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. You can lock the washer while it is
operating.

To lock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

To unlock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the
CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
