I have unplugged the machine and plugged it back in and restarted, just like when a computer needs to be reset/cold boot.

    The control can be unlocked by pressing and holding the End of Cycle button for 3 seconds, or until the Control Locked indicator turns off. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control to make sure and eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch; if the End of Cycle button does not unlock it. Replace the control if unplugging and the End of Cycle button fails to unlock it.

My whirlpool Duet washer - the controls are "locked". How do you unlock the controls


Hi, Try pressing pause/cancel twice and drain the machine of water then check the filter for any blockages, when done try and run a program.
I'm assuming the display is on and you cannot enter a program.

hope this helps.

Hello

Your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 15 seconds to unlock the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: The control lock light is lit on my whirlpool duet...


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
