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

Duncan

Controls locked


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.
