Before removing the panel, if machine is still control locked, follow instructions here.

If you loose power during control lock, the machine will stay control locked

    Click here to open the diagram, click on the picture to enlarge

    You will have to remove top panel nr 2, and all the knobs. There should be no retaining screw for the front panel nr 4. Try gently prying it off, if it does nont come off don't force it, find out the point where it is stuck. Behind that you find the control assembly held by screws.

Whirpool Fronload Dryer has power, timer cycles through, but it is not running. The dryer worked two days ago when I ran a load. I went to dry a load this morning and it turns on, everything lights up...


The reasons can be a fault on the program controller unit but as the door does not close the program also will not move further. This must be the clue to the fault. Remove and check the lock and the settings. manually close the door with force and see if the program cycle starts, if not check the door switch and the control panel. Also check for output when the timer counts down. If not the controller unit must be checked for possible problems.

Nothing works on control panel except control locked sensor light. The buttons were working fine then I went to add more drying time and the buttons do not light up or work.


From the details of your symptom you're indicating a possible intermittent loose connection between the user interface (touch panel) and the machine control board or the voltage supply to machine control board at P1 connector.

Disconnect the power cord from the power source.

  • Disconnect P3 and P4 connectors from the machine control board and then reconnect them.
  • Disconnect P1 connector and then reinstall the P1 connector and then recheck operation.

If the wires are good then you will need to replace the control board on your unit.
Here is a link to the part.

My dryer will dry a load and then the control panel will not light up and the dryer will only work again sometimes when I unplug the dryer for a few hours


I can honeslty tell you that the control panel is going bad. I have already replaced mine once and it is acting up again. Just today it would not light up at all.

Control Panel Kenmor Elite HE4


that sounds weird to have all those lights on...
first thing is to try and remove the "lock"light...
push and hold the button, for 5 seconds, below the "lock" light,
that should get the control back to normal operation. then if you still cant get the unit to turn on, try to unplug the dryer for a few minutes.
if you still cant get it to turn back on, call sears "customer service" and complain since your machine should not have failed at this early in its life.

My Kenmore Elite Smartwash control locked light went on after I finished a load. Now no buttons work. How do I unlock the controls?


Just remember, the instructions are printed near the button. This features locks and unlocks the control panel as a designed safety feature to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. In addition, if you get error codes, or the panel starts flashing or freezes up, sometimes these errors can be erroneous. Unplugging the unit for 30 minutes will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of the washer. Any error code following a computer reset, is usually a genuine problem. If you ever have questions about this washer in the future, please keep me in mind. Congrats on getting it working again!

In my case, the problem was a dead main board. The board cost $190 and the overall repair cost $335. I will never buy another Whirlpool due to this experience.

Whirlpool YGEW9250PW1 Electric dryer control locked problem


Hello,
I had the same problem, but my husband, who is an engineer, figured out that if you pull out the light bulbs that are not reading the correct volts on his volt meter, the control lock light will shut off and the dryer will start working. If you do not know how to do this, you can always buy a new control panel. I know this sounds to simple to be true, but we have bought several new "brains" (control boards), tried unpluging the dryer for days at a time, had an certified whirpool technician come out (who recommended buying a new control board), and nothing worked.
