Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

I have a code of loc coming on and my dryer wont work how can I fix this issue??


The control panel is locked. on the control panel, there will be either a "lock" button that you hold down for 3-5 seconds to unlock, or it will have "lock" in small letters with a line pointing to 2 of the option buttons. hold the 2 buttons it points to for 3-5 seconds and it will unlock. the control lock is a child safty feature that will not allow any the washer to work until it is unlocked. P.S. to put the control panel into the lock mode, is the same way as you unlock the control panel.

Door locks unlock and lock by themselves


sounds like you alarm is malfunctioning or shorting out, look under the dash and try unplugging the alarm box and see if this stops the issue. if alarm has engine cutoff it wont start with alarm unplugged. i would test unplugging alarm first and seeing if it stops the issue , then deal with alarm cutoff. It is very common for low end alarm guys to miss wire alarms and over time many issues come up with electrical shorting out, ect.

My washer is locked and i cant unlock it i already tried the control unlock , lock bottom and its still lock i need to take out the cloth that is inside


You have a door lock issue not a control panel lock issue.You can manually unlock the door.Start by unplugging the washer,remove the front lower panel at the bottom of the unit their are 3 small screws on the very bottom next to the floor ,remove them then pull out on the bottom of the panel to remove.Now you can reach up inside the unit near where the door handle is on the outside and you will feel a small ring that you can put your finger thru.pull down towards the floor on the ring and that will manually unlock the door. While there clean out the drain pump strainer right there in front in case its clogged if in does not drain properly in will not unlock the door.Make sure to put something under the pump to catch the water that will come out..At least you can get your clothes out. After checking the pump if that's not the issue write back and we will diagnosis from their Good Luck

The control panel red light is on: Control Locked" and dryer won't start what should I do?


While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

Wont start key symol appears


This advise 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 Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific 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.
