Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Control Locked My Control Locked light is on and I can't get it to go off. It is stuck on that setting and even when I change the cycle the cycle is still stuck on the last cycle that it washed on. I can't turn that light off and the machine will not start. How do you reset the machine? I moved and I have misplaced my manual. Can anyone help? I have even turned off the breaker to see if it will reset and this will not work either.

Look closely at the machine console, the most right set of buttons, the lowest possible one is the control lock button, youll need to hold it in for 3-5 seconds to unlock the control panel(child lock)

Press and hold the End of Cycle button for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked indicator turns off to unlock the control. You have to check the control for any stuck button and unstuck it if the control still cannot be unlocked with the End of Cycle button. The control needs replacing if no stuck button is found and unlocking it is not possible. Please let us know if that is the case and if you need further help. Just indicate the exact model number of the machine.

Control locked will not unlock


It might be a child lock. You have to press and hold the a button for 5 seconds. You have to find which button yourself by looking at the panel (it usually says which one is child lock on it). Could "end of cycle" or "load signal" button.
