The door will have to pried open and door switch will have to be tested or replaced. You can use a multi-meter or ohmmeter.
Worst possible cause is faulty eprom or control board but usually is faulty switch or door sensor.

SOURCE: me washing machine has a light that says control

You may have inadvertently locked the control panel. The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

These instructions are printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual. If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

SOURCE: How do I unlock the controls on the washing

The Control Lock is a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured front loader, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual.

If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). Please post back and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is lit, all buttons are disabled except for Pause/Cancel and Start.

You can lock the controls while the washer is operating.

To lock the controls:

Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds. The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

To unlock the controls:

Select and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds or until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.

The status light says "control


Thank you for using FixYa. The " control locked " is a safety feature to prevent the inadvertant use of the machine by a child. To unlock the controls press the "end of cycle "button for approximately 3 seconds until the "control locked " indicator light goes out. If you have young children in your home and want to lock the controls press the "end of cycle" button again for three seconds.

Please post if this solution has been helpfull

Thank you
