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.

My hotpoint washing machine WF620, squeeks when it is washing and spinning


On most hotpoint wash machines you cant replace or grease the bearing you have to replace the whole drum which cost around 100 pounds from hotpoint and a couple of hours labour its a common problem on hotpoint machines.

WASHER WILL NOT DRAIN AND MAKES A SQUEEKING SOUND


Sounds to me as if you may have some kind of debris stuck in your drain pump. Try removing the pump and clearing it out and I'll bet your problem goes away.

Washing maching squeeks while in spin cycles


Try this... if you can, spray some wd-40 all over the motor and transmission shafts... sometimes, using a powder detergent can clog it up OR just the normal wear and tear if you using a liquid... it's always a good idea to run thru a cycle of bleach on your hottest setting. it break up that debris and is considered good upkeep.

Squeeking during wash cycle


Hi jbramwilliam

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Sometimes this is caused because something is now rubbing. Make sure:
The screws are secure to the counter,
The d/w is perfectly level,
The legs are all tight to the floor,
If the back legs are wheels then shim with wood blocks.
If it still squeeks then you have a warranty problem.

Feel free contact me again!
