SOURCE: Control locked stays on

The following link explains how to unlock the control panel on a Whirlpool Duet:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

This is a designed safety feature of the washer that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can be inadvertently locked by leaning on the control panel, or during power outages. The instructions are printed on the front panel of the washer and are also included in the owner's manual.

If these steps do not provide you with a solution, you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator intervention. Please let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: control lock light stays on.

the button you need to push and hold is the cycle signal. it should be the bottom button on the far right side. push and hold until the light goes off, it most likely will take more than 3 seconds. The button your looking for should also have a small icon of a padlock .
