Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Huuum At your service!
Lets try this,
Like with an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works!
Waiting for your reply!

Please remember to leave a appropriate rating when you are done!
Thank You

Dont believe "huuum" he is wrong. the unit can not be reset by unplugging it.
what you need to do is look at the control panel and look for a paddlelock symbol. push and hold this button for 3 to 5 seconds and that will unlock the control board.
thats all that is needed and next time you will know what to look for.

Dryer is on LOCK CONTROL how do Iget it off?


The model number did not cross but here is what the manuals say for a Duet dryer:

CONTROL LOCKED

This feature allows you to lock your settings to

prevent unintended use of the dryer. You can

also use this feature to prevent unintended

cycle changes during dryer operation.

To enable the Control Locked feature:

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 the Control Locked feature:

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 cannot
be restarted until the control is unlocked

Let me know if this does not work.

Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


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

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

The Control Locked light is on and nothing will work


Hello

When the control lock light remains on and no buttons on the keypad work then it means that the controls are locked. Press the AUTO DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds to unlock/reset the controls. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Help! I have a whirlpool frt load dryer it is locked (controls)


You need to press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button on this model to lock or unlock the control panel. The instructions should be printed directly below the button.

Control lock stays on and nothing else works on the panel. No other lights, no other controls. Disconnected power overnite but nothing changed.


The sound button is the button that you wish the sound to go on when the load is finished drying. Thanks for the advice, I was worried I just bought them and already broken.
