Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To unlock the controls you’ll need to press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 10-15 seconds. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Control lock light is on and nothing else will respond, and this continues even after unplugging/replugging. help!


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with Whirlpool Duet washer however; your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE /CYCLE SIGNAL button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Control locked


If you have a front loader then Press and hold the "end of cycle" button for 5-10 seconds and it will reset the child safety lock.
If the control locked light will not turn off, I recommend unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in and see if the controls will respond. If not, You could have a failed control console or a bad electronic control board in the washer.

My control locked button is lit on the control panel of my front loading Maytag Epic. Therefore, I cannot start a new load (which I just put in). The door easily opens and shuts as itnormally does. Any...


The Control Lock is a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting 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. So, holding the "OFF" button will not clear it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel and usually is not an indication of a washer malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool Duet, Kenmore Elite or Maytag Epic series FRONT LOADER, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


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 (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.
