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 lock button is light up and the washer won't work.


    There is a button on the control panel with a marking under it that says "Press and hold for 3 seconds to lock/unlock control". Look for the said button then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the control lock light turns off. The button is usually the Auto Dry Level button for Kenmore Elite dryers and the Drain/Spin button for Kenmore Elite Washer. Whirlpool Duet Washers and Dryers use the End of Cycle Button to lock and unlock the control.

    Sometimes the problem is due to electronic glitch and unplugging the machine for at least 30 minutes may solve the problem. But if the control cannot be unlocked by pressing and holding the button specified above or by unplugging the machine, the control panel electronics may need to be replaced.

    My washer has the control lock on how do I unlock it?


    The Control Lock is unintentionally turned on. Press and hold the End of Cycle button until the Control Locked indicator turns off. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control if the End of Cycle button does not unlock it. Replace the control if unplugging and the End of Cycle button fails to unlock it. The control can be locked by pressing and holding the same button until the Control Lock light turns on.

    Machine is stuck in control lock


    This feature allows you to lock your settings to prevent unintended use of the dryer.You can also use the Control Locked feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.

    To enable the Control Locked feature when dryer is running:

    Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.
    The control is locked when a single beep is heard and the Control
    Locked status light is on.When the dryer is off,it is not necessary
    to press the Control On button before activating the Control Locked
    feature.

    To unlock:

    Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off.

    NOTE:

    When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can be
    stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button,but can't be restarted
    until the control is unlocked.

    Control Locked


    Locking controls
    The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You
    can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle
    or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is
    lit, all buttons are disabled. You can lock the washer while it is
    operating.

    To lock the controls
    Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
    The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

    To unlock the controls
    Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
