SOURCE: Control Locked

dont believe "huuum" he is wrong. the unit can not be reset by unplugging it.
what you need to do is look at the control panel and look for a paddlelock symbol. push and hold this button for 3 to 5 seconds and that will unlock the control board.
thats all that is needed and next time you will know what to look for.

My dryer ran through the dryer cycle turned off. Hours later I noticed the "control locked" light is on and the dryer will not even light up to set program.


Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, depending on the model dryer you have, look on the control panel for a button or buttons that have a "key" symbol or the word "lock" underneath. Normally, you would hold the button down for 3-5 seconds until the lock light goes out. This is the indication that the control panel is unlocked and normal operation can be initiated. The manufacturers put a panel-lock feature on the units to prevent "busy little hands" or others from changing settings, for unattended safety, etc. Dishwashers, ovens, ranges, and other appliances also have locks for the control panel. If your dryer initiated a control lock by itself, this would indicate a shorted button on the control panel--soft touch buttons and glass touch-control panels are notorious for doing this. If I have the model number, I can usually provide the part number and/or procedure for getting into diagnostic mode to see any stored error codes(if any) which would help pinpoint a problem. I hope I helped you!
