You should just need to press and hold the "end of cycle signal" button in the bottom right corner of your control panel to remove the control lock. If that doesn't work, open the door and look for a sticker with the model number on it. Can you then send me the model number so I can see how to remove the control lock on your particular model?

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
