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 feature can often be set unintentionally and usually is not an indication of an actual problem with the appliance.

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, Maytag Epic 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 other 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.

Control lock light


Press and hold the DRAIN & SPIN button until the Control Locked light goes out. You will likely have to hold this button at least 3 deliberate seconds, maybe as long as 10 seconds to disable the control lock.

Control locked light is on.


The procedure for clearing this is to press and hold the "end of cycle" button for three seconds. It should be all the way on the right of the panel. Let's try this first. before we look at anything else. Hope this helps and let me know what happened. Good luck.

Door stuck Locked Control Locked light on


Try unplugging the washer for at 30 minutes to reset the computer, first. If this proves unsuccessful, you can retrieve you clothes by using the manual release. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

Once you retrieve your clothes, try running diagnostics on it. You can envoke the diagnostic sequence by selecting DRAIN/SPIN, NO/SPIN and then pressing any button under OPTIONS 4 times (must be the same button). The display should go to "C00" as the washer begins a sequence of tests that checks the fill functions, door lock, dispenser functions, motor speed, spin and drain. Allow the washer to run through the entire sequence and shut off. If anything is wrong an error code should be generated. Hopefully, all you had was a minor glitch. Let me know how things turn out. I hope this helps you.
