"Contol locked" light is on. Nothing else responds.
The "control locked" red light is on and the dryer will not respond when any other button is pushed. What to do?
Deborah, try this first:"
Press and hold for 3 seconds the "Control Lock/Unlock" button on the control panel to lock the control panel. Listen for a double beep and observe the "Control Lock" status light is lit when the control lock is in effect. Press and hold for 3 seconds the "Control Lock/Unlock" button on the control panel to unlock the control panel. The "Control Lock" status light is goes out when the control panel is unlocked.
In addition to Oldturkeys answer, try unplugging it for five minutes to allow it to reset.

I have the HE4. I tried all of this, and they didn't work. However, I pressed and held the "Auto Dry Level" just to test other things, and it did the trick for me. Appreciate the input because I wouldn't have tried it otherwise though.
I held the auto steam button for 3 seconds and it worked
Whirlpool duet, didn't work for me. Somtimes if I unplug, wait and replug, it goes off. Other times it does not. But I don't even think the door locks. Please help, so annoying with half dried clothes.
