Press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for 3 seconds. This should unlock the washer controls. If this does not correct the problem, please post back and let me know, so I can assist you with troubleshooting the problem further.

My Duet GHW9100LW I turn it on and the dial light just blinks, it does not lock or start. Tried unplugging, did not work. Don't have manual. Is there a reset button?

Could be a bad lock or possibly a bad control board. I run into this all the time, working for a maytag/whirlpool dealer and repair facility. If your in a area that has alot of power outtages or surges get a surge protector after you get your problem fixed.

Controls locked

If it is an actual control lock issue you can push and hold for 3 to 4 seconds the signal cycle volume button on the far right lower side of the control panel,if there locked this will fix that concern. If the unit still will not operate then locked controls are not the issue and we will have to continue trouble shooting

The control locked light is on and the washer won't start or do anything.


Try pressing the "End of Cycle Signal" button for 4 seconds. This should release the control lock. If it does not then you have an issue with one of the controls and service may need to be run. Let me know if you have questions.
