Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
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
