    I'm having a similar problem. We just got ours. It was running fine. Now the power won't come on. The controls lock works (can lock and unlock) but other than that-no power. I've turned off the circuit breaker and turned it back on with no luck. HELP

    control lock light is on - machine won't do anything

  • william hardy Feb 03, 2009

    The "control lock" is activated on my Duet Dryer, but holding the loudness button in for the recommended 3 or 4 or 10 seconds does NOT unlock the control.
    Any suggestions?

Look to the far right side of the controls and the last bottom button on the right (if you look closely will say control lock hold for 3 secs) and the controls will unlock, its a child safety feature

You guys Rock. The key is to read the darn panel. It tells you exactly what to do. If it wasnt for this post I would have never thought about reading the control panel..... Hold for 3-5 seconds and it clears...

Everyonce in a while the contol might get locked up during a power failure, if it is washing at the time. The door usually stays locked. If you can take the kick plate off and unlock the door by pulling on the release mechanism on the lock itself behind the front panel, then open the door and from there try to get your control to work.

How-To Unlock The Controls For A Whirlpool Duet washer


I have unplugged the machine and plugged it back in and restarted, just like when a computer needs to be reset/cold boot.

Control locked light is on on my whirlpool duet front load dryer and it won't do anything


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Thanks
