I have a whirlpool duet dryer today it said the control

Customer Question

I have a whirlpool duet dryer today it said the control button is locked. How do I unlock it
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I don't have any information on the dryer since we just moved into the house 16 months ago. The best I can do is give you the model #GEW9200LW1
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Just figured there would be some way to release the button
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Other than this issue this morning, I have never had any problems with the dryer I am just curious about this payment. Will I be paying $28 and my problem will be fixed

Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds. This will unlock the control and no other expense is needed.
