The control panel on most Whirlpool Duet washers will show the instructions for unlocking the controls on the panel beside the lock icon. Some models have a CONTROL LOCK button. Some models use the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button to enable and disable the control lock. Follow the directions on the control panel to push and hold the appropriate button for 5 seconds or until the control lock is disabled.

If you need more specific help with your exact model of Duet washer, resubmit your question with the full model number of your unit.

I am having the same issue. No instructions on washer itself. When I Google the question it gives me an answer if the door is actually locked in the closed position. My door is open. Please help.
