My whirlpool duet washer will not start. The cycle selector

This answer was rated:

My whirlpool duet washer will not start. The cycle selector light is blinking and not staying on a steady light when the cycle is selected (like the dryer does). I unplugged it for 15 minutes to see if it would reset (it didn't). I unplugged the power cord and it still will not start.

After trying what you stated, it says "control locked".

ok ,, go ahead and unlock it ,, thanks ,, when you try to start the unit does the door lock shut and does it show any error codes?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Door does not lock and no error code is shown.
this is why it will not start and only blinks, the door lock assembly is bad and has to be replaced, the part number is(NNN) NNN-NNNNwhich cost about $60 and you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you ,, here is a video to show you how to replace it ,, thanks and have a great day
