All you should need to do is press and hold the control lock button for 5 seconds and that should unlock the control panel. If that isn't working, unplug the washer for 5 minutes and try again. If it still won't unlock, the control panel itself has just failed for some reason because there is no other way to unlock the control panel if the control lock light is illuminated.
