Washer lock


The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and usually is not an indication of an actual problem with 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 serious problem 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.

Washer control is 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.

My Maytag front end loading washer is stuck locked


Open the detergen/bleach diospenser cover and there is a tab there that you can pull to open the door. You will likely need to replace the wax motor and control board.

Washer is stuck on "control locked" how does one unlock it?


To unlock your washer press, washer/rinse temp and spin speed pads at the same time for three seconds, the control lock light will go out, hope this helped.
