The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured appliance (such as Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet), 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 button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). Please post back and let me know if you need further assistance.

Profile fridge/freezer not cooling. Contol pannel


Fist thing you want to do is unplug pull away from wall and remove the cover that covers the motherboard. Then try to loosen by squeezing the plastic tabs that hold the mother board in place pull the board away just enough to expose the back side. Tell me if you see burn marks that are sometimes visible on boards when they become defective. What I want to find is if the high voltage side has failed powering the low voltage side or you just mayhave a defective control panel. Are lights out on the dispenser control panel? Is the model you listed correct PSW26? I can help if you like, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Keyless entry, Interior lights, AC Fan Controls problem


Yes you Can. Just unhook the Battery Cables Before you Tear into the Box. The reason that everything went Nuts with it is whenever you Un Bolted the Box you took the Ground away from the Box and all the Components Connected to it. That Bolt is a Common Ground for the Dash ans other Components. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
