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

To start, press and hold the Heat Dry button for 5 seconds to see if the control lock will disengage. If that doesn't work, your touch control panel has just failed and would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace, and the cost is about $105.
