Hello

You can unlock the control by resetting it, to reset try pressing the END OF CYCLE button and hold it for 15 seconds. This will resolve the problem...please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Press the "End of Cycle Signal" button, the last button on the bottom right, for 5-10 seconds. That should resolve the problem.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: The control lock light is lit on my whirlpool duet...


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.

Whirlpool Duet accidentally put into "control lock". How do you reset it?


The following link explains how to correct the 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.
