  • Bettyblue Apr 21, 2009

    I have a samsung Q1435v BigWash and it's been working fine for the last 4 years until today my power went off while it was in pause mode and now the child lock is stuck on and won't release. I drained the water out manually and opened the door using the emergency door release so I could get clothes out, but now can't press any buttons at all as the lock remains on.

Turn on the machine with the door open using the on/off button
Press and hold the childlock,temperature and spin buttons at the same time for approx 5 seconds. The sceen will flash.
Scrollup/down using the temperature or spin buttons until the required language is seen in the display.
Press the child lock button to save the new setting.

How to get the childlock to unlock


Try holding the child lock button for 4 seconds (or until you hear the beep). This should toggle the lock on or off depending on the current setting.

I hope this helps. If this doesn't work, there is probably a problem with the control panel (keypad or the wiring).

Cindy Wells
(I've found that sometimes it feels like you have to hold the button for longer than the 4 seconds to toggle the lock off. So try holding the button for longer before trying to find a problem with the control panel.)

Childlock flashing unable start machine


Hi there, without some details of the make and model of your machine I can't tell you what buttons to press to perform a reset of the machine, however, this is a common problem, often associated with a momentary power failure when the controller doesn't get time to reset and return to an idle state before the machine gets power back and it gets "confused". Regardless of the cause, you will almost certainly find that unplugging from the mains (Not just powering off on the button, as some door locks have a sneak circuit, even when the power is turned off at the button) and leaving the machine undisturbed for a full 20 minutes will allow a reset, the door lock will disengage and all will be well when you power back up. Additionally, on older machines with analog program selectors, turn the selector to an end of program setting before you power it off.

The Maytag repairman says my model number is MAH2400AWW. You tell me: No manuals found for mah2400aww manuals. What now?


Check for yourself, pull the washer out, and check the back. model numbers/serial numbers are normally tagged on the back.

How do we get childlock off a hotpoint wm 864


When activated all the buttons will be disabled and a child will not be able to alter any wash programme or option settings. Once selected this feature remains activated, even when the machine is ‘off’.

To use this feature press the ‘Child Lock’ button and hold down for 2 seconds. The child safe icon will begin to flash. When the icon stops flashing the feature is activated. If any of the control buttons are pressed, the child safe icon will flash and the machine will bleep 3 times: no alterations to the control settings will be allowed. If power is interrupted, at any time, pressing any button will reactivate the child lock feature.

To deactivate this feature hold the ‘Child Lock’ button down for 4 seconds. You will then hear a bleep and the child safe icon will go out.

CHILD LOCK STUCK ON


I agree with the initial solution, depress the child lock button for at least 3 seconds.
If it does not clear, then try again.
Good luck.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
