It says CONTROL LOCKED.... how do I get it unlocked??


  • Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.


  • Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off. The control panel is now unlocked, and the washer is ready for use.


  • Lock the washer again by pressing and holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button until the "Control Locked" indicator light turns on.

  • They designed that mostly for kids sorry pain I know just be calm feel saving some ones child thanx

    Controls locked


    The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is lit, all buttons are disabled except for Pause/Cancel and Start. You can lock the controls while the washer is operating. To lock the controls: Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds. The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows. To unlock the controls: Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds or until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.

    The controls have locked and I do not know how to unlock


    You may have inadvertently locked the control panel. Before assuming you have a malfunction, read the following: The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

    These instructions are 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 issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

    Control panel locked


    The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem for your washer:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

    I know this link is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet. The newer model Maytags are manufactured by Whirlpool (which also makes the Kenmore Elite) so these instructions should apply. Keep in mind control panel options between models may differ slightly, but the locking feature instructions should be printed on the front panel. If you are not sure, there should be a tech sheet inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. If not directly behind the panel, the sheet should be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

    If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have a more serious problem. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    NOTE: The Control Lock feature is a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the front panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls.
