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.

    The control panel is flashing a L. What does this mean?


    Hi.

    The model indicated: MDB5651A does not have display and the error codes are shown like flashing lights. If that is your model and problem please just tell me what lights are flashing.

    In Maytag with display instead, the L on display means that the machine is control locked. That is not an error message, but a code telling that the machine has been locked by the user (probably by mistake since you are the user).

    I quote from Maytag technical documentation:

    ? If a cycle or option pad is pressed after the controls have been locked, the indicator light next to lock graphic will flash five times. On selected models with a countdown display, the display will flash the symbol "L" simultaneously with lock indicator.

    ? This option does not lock the door, only the dishwasher controls.

    To set :
    1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
    2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked.

    To Cancel Control Lock:
    1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
    2. The indicator light will go off as instructed.

    Try pressing the the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect power. Connect back and try again unlock (power off does not remove the lock). If that still does not work there may be a faulty part. In that case turn appliance off and give me the full model number.

    Start holding down the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. In normal conditions that is enough to get rid of the L and of control lock.

    If you need parts or schematics see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

    Regards.

    I have a problem with the remote control that is not working, I have taken it local technicians but nothing . My TV is in child lock so I need a remote for the tall big telefunken TV


    Hi what you can do is to buy a universal remote control for this TV to remove the child lock. You can get that online or on any electronic shops in your area. Once done here is the instructions on how to remove the child lock using remote.
    Look at the "Power" indicator light on the front of the television to check if it is blinking. When blinking, the child lock is enabled. You can also check by pressing the "Power" button on the television.
    Point the remote control at the television and press one of the buttons on the number keypad. The "Power" indicator light will stop blinking, indicating the child lock is turned off.
    Lock the television again by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the remote control until the indicator light starts blinking. It takes approximately three seconds before the light turns on. Thanks

    Problem with my cruise control and ABS light on 03 Explorer


    Anti-Lock Control —Vehicles Built After 03/2002 The 3-channel anti-lock brake system consists of the following components:
    • front wheel speed sensors
    • front wheel speed sensor rings
    • hydraulic control unit (HCU)
    • Anti-lock brake control module (ECU)
    • rear wheel speed sensor
    • rear wheel speed sensor rings
    • yellow anti-lock brake warning indicator
    The 4-channel anti-lock brake system with traction control and stability assist system consists of the following components:
    • active brake booster with integral solenoid
    • brake booster release switch
    • front wheel speed sensors
    • front wheel speed sensor rings
    • hydraulic control unit (HCU)
    • stability assist module (ECU)
    • stability assist event indicator
    • lateral accelerometer
    • longitudinal accelerometer (4x4)
    • rear wheel speed sensors
    • rear wheel speed sensor rings
    • steering wheel position sensor
    • yaw rate sensor
    • yellow anti-lock brake warning indicator
    • brake pressure transducer
    • traction control switch
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    I suspect the abs issue is causing the speed control not to work if it happened at the same time the cruise control stopped working. When the yellow ABS light comes on, it means the ABS is dactivated. You may have a faulty accelerometer which senses acceleration and yaw (side to side lean). I have not seen a bad one but you said it is sensitive to acceleration.
    I would unplug it and see what happens. The connector should have a small tab to depress so you can pull the connector out.
    Here is where it is:

    Accelerometer Removal and Installation
    1. NOTE: The accelerometer is located under the center, rear passenger seat carpet. (I think you have to remove seat for access).
      Cut the carpeting along the perforations.
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    1. Remove the nuts and remove the accelerometer.

    Have dealer hook up tester and pull fault codes if you can't find an easy solution.
    Some background info
  • A malfunction in the anti-lock brake system will cause the anti-lock brake control module to shut off or inhibit the system. However, normal power-assisted braking remains.
  • Malfunctions are indicated by the yellow ABS warning indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • The anti-lock brake system is self-monitoring. When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the anti-lock brake control module will carry out a preliminary self-check on the anti-lock electrical system indicated by a three-second illumination of the yellow ABS warning indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • During vehicle operation, including normal and anti-lock braking, the anti-lock brake control module monitors all electrical anti-lock functions and some hydraulic operations.
  • Each time the vehicle is driven, as soon as vehicle speed reaches approximately 20 km/h (12mph), the anti-lock brake control module turns on the pump motor for approximately one-half second. At this time, a mechanical noise may be heard. This is a normal function of the self-check by the anti-lock brake control module.
  • Pedal pulsation coupled with noise while braking on loose gravel, bumps, wet or snowy roads is normal and indicates correct functioning of the anti-lock brake system.
  • Warning Lamp Indicator
    The anti-lock brake system (ABS) uses the yellow ABS warning indicator to alert the driver of a malfunctions in the ABS.
    The yellow ABS warning indicator will come on to warn the driver that the ABS has been turned off due to a symptom that exists in the ABS. Normal power assist braking remains but wheels can lock during a panic stop while the yellow ABS warning indicator is illuminated.

    -----------------------------------------
    Please report back, I am curious if that is what it is. Good luck
