I have a sears /mfg whirlpool 66513443k901. It supposedly was working when I deinstalled it. When I rehooked it up only the lock light comes on on the panel. Everything else is dead. I checked the thermal fuse on the bottom of the tub, that's ok. I checked all connectors I could find including on the control pcb. All seam to be tight.Any suggestions other then the control pcb.
Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting JA to help you with this appliance question.

Try hitting and holding the heated dry button for 5-10 seconds, the panel should unlock, If the panel does not unlock your problem is a shorted touch pad button, this means the control panel will need to be replaced.

You can try warming the touchpad up with a hair dryer on low heat in a attempt to unstick the shorted button. If this does not work you can order the part from the link below.
