Parental Control Lock is on. Need to get rid of it. remote not working. JVC 32" Model AV32850


Hi,

Unfortunately, you need to have the original remote control to turn off parental control lock.You need to use original remote control to access menu and then turn off the control lock.There is no alternate way.If the remote is not working, you need to buy a used / new remote.You could buy it from :-

The dryer light says " control locked". How do we unlock it? I don't even know how that happened..


The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance.

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 appliance (such as Kenmore Elite, Maytag Epic or Whirlpool Duet), 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 significant problem other than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). Please post back and let me know if you need further assistance.

The controls have locked and I do not know how to unlock


You may have inadvertently locked the control panel. Before assuming you have a malfunction, read the following: 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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

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.

Control panel locked


The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem for your washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

I know this link is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet. The newer model Maytags are manufactured by Whirlpool (which also makes the Kenmore Elite) so these instructions should apply. Keep in mind control panel options between models may differ slightly, but the locking feature instructions should be printed on the front panel. If you are not sure, there should be a tech sheet inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. If not directly behind the panel, the sheet should be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have a more serious problem. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The Control Lock feature is a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the front panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls.

The front controls are locked


Hi, go into the menu via remote control and select special in the options. select child lock and untick it if it has a tick next to it.

This should re-enable the front control panel.

Hope it helps.
