For the washer, hold the End of Cycle button for 5 seconds. For the dryer, press "More time", "Less time", "More time", "Less time" buttons in that sequence within 5 seconds.

I have a front load whirlpool washer. Could you please tell me how to get the washer out of control locked mode?


Without the model number of your washer, it is difficult to advise you on how to unlock the controls. Most controls will have the instructions for locking/unlocking on the front panel. Check for a lock icon on the controls. Some washers have a specific lock button with a padlock icon on it. The normal method for locking/unlocking is to hold the button for 3 deliberate seconds or until the control unlocks. This may take as long as 10 seconds on some models.

Control panel locked,how to unlock


The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured front loader, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are also 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 button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue).

Please post back if you still need assistance. I hope this helps you.

Control locked. How do I unlock it?


Press and hold the End of Cycle button for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked indicator turns off to unlock the control. The End of Cycle button is located at the extreme right of the console. Unplug the machine for at least 15 minutes to reset the central control unit if the control cannot be unlocked using the End of Cycle button. Let us know if the control cannot be unlocked even after the machine is unplugged.

I was doing a load of laundry and the washer "froze" i tried to cancel the load but it wont stop.... i ended up unpluging it and even when i plugged it back in its still stuck!!!


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.
