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.

Why does my new indesit washer not lather


Hang on a minute guys, She said it washes perfectly so there is NO PROBLEM.
Front loading machines should only have LOW SUDS powder put in them to PREVENT LATHER. Excess Lather / foam WILL leak out and WILL ruin the machine.

Did I ruin the Whirlpool Cabrio washer if Iput the soap directly on the clothes rather than the soap dispenser. I did this one time and am worried I may have ruined the machine


No, this does not damage the machine. Soap goes in the dispenser to provide a better circulation / distribution of the soap than pouring it directly into the machine.

Go to repairclinic.com or partselect.com to get the parts, you will need a model number.

Honestly I dont know if Magic Chef even builds washer anymore or has in the past several years. with that I would assume your warranty has expired. You will need copies of when you bought the washer and a copy of the warranty to full fill any warranty claims plus an authorized Magic Chef service agent will have to preform warranty work if it is still under warranty.
