How do I remove the Control Locked light which prevents starting

After the power returned from the hurrican, the Control Locked light was on. Tried everything to remove or override but nothing worked. What can I do short of calling a repair man?

I had the same problem due to an electrical outage here, I forget the fix, but it's in the manual, scary, but simple fix.

Hi i have the same problem and did not have any success in having any light or sound but the control lock light on. As soon I touch any thing else it will flash 4 times and back to steady that’s it. Any other suggestions? I unplugged it twice already!

door

I mistakenly tried to turn resolve this by hitting the control lock and when nothing happened I assumed there was a problem. If you press and hold control lock until it counts down 3,2,1 and then off. This turns it off.

Gekozen oplossing

Howard Lowitt, hope everything else is okay after the hurricane. Anyhow, try this first. Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off. If that does not do it, try putting the machine into diagnostic mode.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST

The washer must be empty and the control must be in the OFF state before pressing the touch-pad sequence to start the test.

Starting the Test Mode

■ Close the door.

■ Push CONTROL/ON (if present on this model).

■ Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.

■ Select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SPEED touch-pad.

■ Push PREWASH OPTION four times within five seconds. (If PREWASH OPTION is not present on this model, press EXTRA RINSE four times within five seconds.) C:00 will light up on the display.

If the Starting procedure fails, push the PAUSE/CANCEL touch-pad, then repeat the starting procedure.

Test Program Control

In order to advance to the next step of the test procedure, push PREWASH OPTION touch-pad two times. If PREWASH OPTION is not present on this model, press EXTRA RINSE two times.

If that does not work, or if if it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you may need to replace the main control board. You can get the service manual from here. You can also find plenty of information on here and here as well. Hope this helps, good luck. Stay safe....

Press and hold the drain/spin cycle button for 4 seconds should do the trick

Had mice enter the control panel and fray the wires. After making the repairs, the control lock light was on and no suggestions here would fix. Holding the spin speed button and end of cycle signal button for 4 seconds worked however!

THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!

That suggestion worked for our Whirlpool Model GHW9250ML1 !!! Have been searching for a fix for our washer all day. Husband gave up and was trying to find an appliance repair shop to come out. Our washer is from about 1998 and we couldn’t find the owners manual. YOUR quick fix saved the day, and $$$$$. THANKS AGAIN. Jean W.

Thank you so much. After the hurricane mine wouldn’t go off. And by reading your comments it worked. Saved me some money.

On my front loader I had to press and hold the control lock button until it beeped then the LOC light popped off

Update (09/24/2016)

I held down the "control Lock" button on my front loader until it beeped. A few seconds then the LOC error popped off. It happens a lot when I accidentally lean or touch the front of the machine which happens with almost no intent. Plays the on/off tune then powers on or off. This is a design flaw if you ask me.

Not an answer. Control lock goes off intermittently and returns. It will go off after any button is pushed for three seconds except the end of cycle button.

Chris Werner. Is it a question? Something like "Why does the Control lock go off intermittently and returns?"

door

Sorry, I was following the questions and answers that preceded - The last one was, "Was this answer helpful? None of these worked so are not the answer for my situation. Unplugging for extended period worked for a bit but it beeped intermittently throughout. Now that doesn't work either. I have tried all of the button combinations. Can't get it into diagnostic mode.

Question: does it need a new control unit, perhaps?

I have a whirlpool duet sport washer. When I power on the control panel looks fine. I choose a cycle press start. The door locks and stays locked. The dance/ pause button light comes on. After pressing the pause/ cancel button, it stays lit? Door still locked, the the “add a garment” light turns on. Then the changing the cycle doesn’t work. The time remains stays the same as the cycle chosen initially. At this point no buttons work. I did a diagnostic test and the only code that appears is f-24 (temperature sensor, but I replaced the sensor with a brand new one). Help please! And what does this error code have to do with the door?

THANK YOU!

None of this works and there is no control lock button just a light and control on button. None of this stuff worked! I cleaned the filter that was on the hose and now I’m having this problem of control lock!
