Answers :

I am assuming you have unplugged it or turned off the breaker since it may be hard to get to. The easiest fix would be too google the problem including model and Whirpool. We did this on our oven that was locked up and it gave us the procedure. If no luck, then call Whirpool directly for help.

The contol lock LED is illuminated on the front panel of my Maytag dishwasher. (Neither my wife nor I pressed the control lock for 3 seconds!) We've tried to extinguish it by pressing it for 3 to 5 seconds, but it remains ON.
