Why is my Maytag front load washer control locked light on?

I have a Maytag Epic washer model MFW9700SQ1. The control lock is on and it will not turn on or off. It will not start. What can I do to correct this problem?

To unlock the controls, press and hold the CYCLE END SIGNAL for 3 deliberate seconds or until the control lock light goes out. If the control locked light will not turn off, I recommend unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in and see if the controls will respond. If not, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer. You could have a failed control console or a bad electronic control board in the washer.
