I have a whilrpool frontloader and it is stuck on "control locked" how do I unlock it?


Look for the End of Cycle button on the control panel then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked indicator turns off. There's actually a marking under the button saying "Hold for 3 Seconds to Lock/Unlock Control". Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control and to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch if pressing and holding the End of Cycle button does not work. Replace the control if unplugging and the pressing the End of Cycle button fails to unlock it.

How to unlock controled lock


You can try a hard reset.

Turn the machine off if you can

Unplug it from the wall outlet
Leave it for about a minute
Plug it back in.

Always use caution when working around electricity and a washing machine

Are there any lights showing on your machine? What is the make and model of our washer?

How to unlock controled lock


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 an 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.

Whirlpool duet dryer does not run. The control lock light stays on even after I hold down the end of cycle button for over 5 seconds and/or unplug dryer for over 15 min. The light comes on when door is...


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.

My washer is locked. I have unpluged it, pushed the control button and nothing works. I have losted my manual.


If you have a whirlpool duet, press the END OF CYCLE button (located at the far right side of the control pannel)and hold for 3 seconds. This should unlock the control pannel. It's written in tiny writing under that button as well.

''Control Lock'' won't ''unlock''


Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button to lock or unlock the control panel. The instructions should be printed directly below this button. I hope this helps you.
