It says CONTROL LOCKED.... how do I get it unlocked??


  • Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.


  • Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off. The control panel is now unlocked, and the washer is ready for use.


  • Lock the washer again by pressing and holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button until the "Control Locked" indicator light turns on.

    CONTROL LOCKED on Whirlpool/Kenmore Washers/Dryers


    The Whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. To reset the washer you have to Press and hold the END OF CYCLE/CYCLE SIGNAL button for 20 seconds. This button is usually located on the right side of the panel facing the front of the washer.

    Similarly, if it is a Kenmore Washer you can press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 20 seconds.

    To reset the Kenmore Dryer for this Control Lock problem you have to Press and Hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 20 seconds to unlock the Controls.

    A red padlock symbol is showing on the panel of my WCVH6800 front load washer. I can't change any of the wash settings. How do I fix this?


    Here's what the Padlock represents:


    Lock Function

    You can lock the controls to prevent any selections from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle. children cannot accidentally start the washer by touching pads with this option selected.


    To lock the washer, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds (on some models use SIGNAL button). To unlock the washer controls, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The control lock icon on the display will light up when it is on.


    NOTE: The POWER button can still be used when the machine is locked.

    The control lock button is light up and the washer won't work.


    There is a button on the control panel with a marking under it that says "Press and hold for 3 seconds to lock/unlock control". Look for the said button then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the control lock light turns off. The button is usually the Auto Dry Level button for Kenmore Elite dryers and the Drain/Spin button for Kenmore Elite Washer. Whirlpool Duet Washers and Dryers use the End of Cycle Button to lock and unlock the control.

    Sometimes the problem is due to electronic glitch and unplugging the machine for at least 30 minutes may solve the problem. But if the control cannot be unlocked by pressing and holding the button specified above or by unplugging the machine, the control panel electronics may need to be replaced.

    Control Locked


    Locking controls
    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. You can lock the washer while it is
    operating.

    To lock the controls
    Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
    The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

    To unlock the controls
    Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
