Washer won't start, control lock lite on?


Try unplugging the washer for 30 minutes. When you plug it back in, the power board should reset and allow you to start a new wash cycle.

Whirlpool duet washer GHW9300PW4 .... The control lock is on .. I did get door to open, It will not shut off and none of the cycles will light up or start.. Please help..


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

I have a duet HT and the control is locked. how do i unlock thanks


Mine is doing this all the time, I finally got tired of pulling the washer out to unplug it so I plugged the washer into an extension cord that's easily accessable, so unplug it for at least 30 mins before you plug it back in reset to drain and spin cycle for 12 mins and your load should finish ok. These washer and dryers are beginning to be a pain in my....neck.

I am getting a control locked prompt. I have tried pushing the reset for 30 seconds but it still gives me the same prompt. Is there another solution?


The reset or cancel button does not control the locking feature. The following link explains how to correct a control panel lock issue on a Whirlpool Duet:

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

The control panel lock is actually a designed safety feature that allows you to lock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls. It can be inadvertently set by leaning against the control panel buttons, or following a power outage.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
