Hello, this is Dave and I welcome you to JustAnswer. I'm sorry to hear you are having problems. The LC code is not listed anywhere but I suspect it could be control locked. Try this; press and hold the Control Lock button on the far right for 4 seconds and let me know what happens.

How did that work?

I was able to Google Whirlpool washer LC and found out the code meant "lock". I held the Control Lock button for 3 seconds and the washer starts now. I was able to find the info online faster than getting a feedback from you. I'd like to cancel my membership.
