My dryer ran through the dryer cycle turned off. Hours later I noticed the "control locked" light is on and the dryer will not even light up to set program.


Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, depending on the model dryer you have, look on the control panel for a button or buttons that have a "key" symbol or the word "lock" underneath. Normally, you would hold the button down for 3-5 seconds until the lock light goes out. This is the indication that the control panel is unlocked and normal operation can be initiated. The manufacturers put a panel-lock feature on the units to prevent "busy little hands" or others from changing settings, for unattended safety, etc. Dishwashers, ovens, ranges, and other appliances also have locks for the control panel. If your dryer initiated a control lock by itself, this would indicate a shorted button on the control panel--soft touch buttons and glass touch-control panels are notorious for doing this. If I have the model number, I can usually provide the part number and/or procedure for getting into diagnostic mode to see any stored error codes(if any) which would help pinpoint a problem. I hope I helped you!

My range has on the digital panal Loc and a lock symbol. How do I fix this my oven won't turn on.


Hello. From what you're describing, you've locked yourself out of your oven! Lol, this happens more often than people realize! The lock is there to keep "busy little fingers" and unknowing users from changing settings. Look for a button(or set of 2 buttons) that say "lock" or have a small lock symbol underneath. Normally, you press and hold the particular button(s) for 3-4 seconds and this will unlock the control board. A lot of dishwashers have this feature for the same reasons. On some ranges, there is a lockout control for the cooktop and the oven separately. Especially important if you have one of those touch panel models(you simply touch the glass to turn on the burners!) and small kids running around. I nearly took the fingerprints off my fingers on one of those things while servicing an over-the-range microwave. I hope I helped you!

Bottom oven stopped working there is a key symbol showing on the panel what is wrong ?


There are a few reasons for this. One is the most obvious and that is the child lock switch needs to be engaged to unlock.Some models call it panel lock.
Turning the panel lock on and off:
To turn the panel lock on, press and hold the Panel Lock key for four seconds. The Panel Lock symbol will appear in the display.
To turn the panel lock off, press and hold the Panel Lock key for four seconds. The message in the display will disappear.

Kenmore ultra wash machine won't run even with indicator lights on. Symbol on machine says Lock on


You have the control-lock function turned on. There should be a key located near (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually, it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock your dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Unlock hot tub control panel


Panel needs to be in the display of "Time" 1st. If not, push the "Prog" button to get there. Once the Time is displayed, push & "Hold" the "UP" button for at least 5 seconds. The Lock icon/symbol will be displayed - panel is locked. Release and hold the UP button again for at least 5 seconds, the panel will then be unlocked.
