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. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel and usually is not an indication of a washer malfunction.

If this is a Maytag Epic, Whirlpool Duet, or Kenmore Elite, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

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.

NOTE: If you cannot locate your owner's manual, you can download or print a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link and you will find your manual listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format.

I have a code of loc coming on and my dryer wont work how can I fix this issue??


The control panel is locked. on the control panel, there will be either a "lock" button that you hold down for 3-5 seconds to unlock, or it will have "lock" in small letters with a line pointing to 2 of the option buttons. hold the 2 buttons it points to for 3-5 seconds and it will unlock. the control lock is a child safty feature that will not allow any the washer to work until it is unlocked. P.S. to put the control panel into the lock mode, is the same way as you unlock the control panel.

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.

    I have a front load whirlpool washer. Could you please tell me how to get the washer out of control locked mode?


    Without the model number of your washer, it is difficult to advise you on how to unlock the controls. Most controls will have the instructions for locking/unlocking on the front panel. Check for a lock icon on the controls. Some washers have a specific lock button with a padlock icon on it. The normal method for locking/unlocking is to hold the button for 3 deliberate seconds or until the control unlocks. This may take as long as 10 seconds on some models.

    Control lock button is on and will not clear to wash clothes


    Hi, Whirlpool makes their control lock very confusing. Often times, people will look on the control panel and the control lock light will go on and they can not figure out how to unlock the control panel. They will try pressing and holding the cancel button and unplugging the washer or dryer to reset it. None of these options work. All you need to do is press and hold the end of cycle button for 3 seconds and the control panel will unlock. If that doesn't unlock your controls, then unfortunately your interface control board is just shorted and will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue.

    How to unlock controled lock


    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 an 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.
