Amana Washer Error Codes

Amana Washer Error Code LOC or LC

One of the common error codes Amana washer users may encounter is LOC or LC, indicating that the Control Lock feature has been activated. This feature is designed to prevent accidental changes to the washer settings during a wash cycle. If you see LOC or LC on your Amana washer’s display, follow these steps to resolve the issue:

1. Identify the Control Lock Button:

Check your Amana washer’s control panel for a dedicated Control Lock button. Refer to your Owner’s Manual to locate the specific button on your model. In some cases, pressing and holding a particular button for an extended period may activate or deactivate the Control Lock feature.

2. Touch the Control Lock Button:

If your washer has a designated Control Lock button, touch it to deactivate the feature. The Control Lock indicator should turn off, allowing you to resume normal operation. If you are unsure which button serves this function, consult your Owner’s Manual for clarification.

3. Consult Your Owner’s Manual:

For older Amana washer models, the method to activate or deactivate the Control Lock feature may vary. Refer to your Owner’s Manual for detailed instructions on handling the LOC or LC error code. The manual will guide you on which button to press and for how long to release the Control Lock.

4. Press and Hold the Button:

In some cases, you may need to press and hold a specific button to activate or deactivate the Control Lock. Ensure you press the correct button and hold it until the LOC or LC indicator disappears. This action should release the control lock and restore normal functionality.

5. Power Cycle the Washer:

If the above steps do not resolve the issue, try power cycling your Amana washer. Turn the washer off, unplug it from the power source, wait for a few minutes, and then plug it back in. Turn on the washer and check if the LOC or LC error code persists.

By following these steps, you can effectively address the Amana Washer Error Code LOC or LC and regain control of your appliance.
