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!

Dryer is on LOCK CONTROL how do Iget it off?


The model number did not cross but here is what the manuals say for a Duet dryer:

CONTROL LOCKED

This feature allows you to lock your settings to

prevent unintended use of the dryer. You can

also use this feature to prevent unintended

cycle changes during dryer operation.

To enable the Control Locked feature:

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 the Control Locked feature:

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 cannot
be restarted until the control is unlocked

Let me know if this does not work.

Try unplugging it and see if it will reset the control panel.I would have to say if that don't work it's a problem electrical and unfortunately you will have to call a repair man.
Most of these machines are under waranty for two years.

Whirlpool YGEW9250PW1 Electric dryer control locked problem


Hello,
I had the same problem, but my husband, who is an engineer, figured out that if you pull out the light bulbs that are not reading the correct volts on his volt meter, the control lock light will shut off and the dryer will start working. If you do not know how to do this, you can always buy a new control panel. I know this sounds to simple to be true, but we have bought several new "brains" (control boards), tried unpluging the dryer for days at a time, had an certified whirpool technician come out (who recommended buying a new control board), and nothing worked.
