My 2+ year old Whirlpool Duet Washer (GHW9150PW0) has the 'Control Locked' light on and the controls are indeed locked.

I have tried a) unplugging the washer for hours and b) putting the washer into diagnostic mode using the instructions from this thread http://applianceguru.com/forum2/1540.html without any luck.

According to the Samurai's reply in the above referenced thread, my washer needs a new main control board....please confirm this assessment.

Also, is this a repair a do-it-yourselfer can undertake alone?  Insights, instruction, and references would be appreciated.

Jim

My Duet shows to hold the end of signal volume button down for 3 seconds to turn the control lock on and off, does yous say anything under any of the buttons?
