Maytag Washer Error Codes

Maytag Washer Error Code LOC or LC

If your Maytag washer displays the error code LOC or LC, it indicates that the control lock feature has been activated. This feature is designed to prevent accidental changes to the wash cycle settings during operation. When the control lock is engaged, the washer won’t allow the initiation or alteration of wash cycles.

  1. Disable Control Lock:

    To disable the control lock and return the washer to normal operation, follow these steps:

    • Press and hold the “Control Lock” or “Control Lock/Unlock” button on the control panel for approximately 3 to 5 seconds.
    • Once the control lock is deactivated, the LOC or LC error code should disappear.
  2. Power Cycle the Washer:

    If the control lock doesn’t deactivate using the above method, try power cycling the washer:

    • Unplug the washer from the power source or turn off the circuit breaker.
    • Wait for a few minutes before plugging the washer back in or turning the circuit breaker back on.
    • Attempt to start or change the wash cycle once power is restored.
  3. Refer to the User Manual:

    Consult your Maytag washer’s user manual for specific instructions on how to activate and deactivate the control lock feature.

  4. Contact Professional Service:

    If the control lock persists despite troubleshooting efforts, it may indicate an underlying issue with the control panel or electronic components. In such cases, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance from technicians, like those at Appliance Repair Los Angeles, to assess and address the problem accurately.

Understanding and resolving the LOC or LC error code promptly ensures that your Maytag washer returns to its regular functionality, allowing you to resume your laundry tasks without interruption.
