Customer Question

Control lock is on and end of cycle button will not release it.

If pressing and holding the end of cycle signal button in the bottom right hand corner of your control panel won't remove the control lock, unplug the dryer for at least 5 minutes and try again. If it still won't work, then unfortunately this means your front interface display control board has just failed and would need to be replaced, there is no way around that. The part is usually about $250 or so depending on the exact model.
