Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

There should be a control lock button on your control panel that you can press and hold for 5 seconds to remove the control lock. Other than that, press and hold the "end of cycle signal" button in the bottom right corner which should unlock the control panel if you don't have a control lock button on your model number.
