Whirpool Duet Washer Model GHW9150PW1 Control Locked


I had the same exact problem, the answer is in the User's Manual for this model Dryer, also here: The Users Manual reads: "TO UNLOCK": Press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off. I did this and it worked perfectly the first time! My first load is drying now after months of being without the dryer (too busy to investigate!). Good luck.

Control locked light is lit not allowing any operation of the dry


Did you try unlocking it by pressing on the "End of cycle" button for 3 seconds.

If that doesn't solve the issue, it might be the control board (user interface) might have gone bad.

I had the same issue with my GEW9250 and I had followed these steps to repair the board. I am not sure if it works for you, but you can try it out.
Open the User interface control board
Then remove the PCBS (the green control boards)
Check the led bulbs, for me one of them is fried. You can use volt meter to test it.
Remove the bulb(s) that are fried (not working)
That should fix it...
