My rear doors will not lock by the front control locking system

Do they lock with the other controls? If so, the the problem is that control switch has gone bad. Its an easy fix, you can get the part at any auto parts store. Pop the cover loose on the control panel where the switch is, and remove the switch (some are screwed in, and some just pop in). Unplug it. Bring it to the store and let them match it. plug in the new switch, pop it back in, snap the cover on. fixed. Hope this helps

Control off is on, how can I fix it?

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.

Me washing machine has a light that says control

You may have inadvertently locked the control panel. The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

These instructions are printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual. If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

Elsewhere on this forum a fix was given that is rather easy. Someone in your home has activated the child safety switch. On the lower right hand side of the control panel, hold the bottom button in for 3 seconds until the light goes out.(safety control lock switch)
