It says CONTROL LOCKED.... how do I get it unlocked??


  • 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. The control panel is now unlocked, and the washer is ready for use.


  • Lock the washer again by pressing and holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button until the "Control Locked" indicator light turns on.

    My washer has the control lock on how do I unlock it?


    The Control Lock is unintentionally turned on. Press and hold the End of Cycle button until the Control Locked indicator turns off. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control if the End of Cycle button does not unlock it. Replace the control if unplugging and the End of Cycle button fails to unlock it. The control can be locked by pressing and holding the same button until the Control Lock light turns on.

    Machine is stuck in control lock


    This feature allows you to lock your settings to prevent unintended use of the dryer.You can also use the Control Locked feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.

    To enable the Control Locked feature when dryer is running:

    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:

    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 can't be restarted
    until the control is unlocked.

    Control locked on whirlpool ghw9100lw1


    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.
