Unplug the machine wait 10 seconds than plug the machine back in and press the cancel/stop button twice. this should unlock you washer and fix the problem. If this does not please give me the model number of your unit. it is located on the inside of the lid of your unit.

My Bosch Classic 6 is dispalying the key symble and will not let me proceed with the washing cycle thank you


When the machine is on, and the key symbol is showing, push and hold the start button for 5 full seconds to turn the child lock off. Holding the start button also turns the child lock on if it is not already on (it is a toggle switch).

Bosch classixx 6 1200 express is showing a key symbol in the LED - when I switch on the washing time goes back to 0 and the alert sounds and I cant start the wash I dont know how to switch the key...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry.

good luck going forward.

The digital display is showing a KEY symbol flashing, and i can't program a new load. What does this mean?


This is the childproof lock symbol and prevents you from changing a program once it has been selected The symbol flashes if the program is changed during a wash cycle. If the machine is switched off mid cycle with the lock on then it will continue the program as so as the machine is switched back on. To activate the lock press the START button and hold for 4 seconds and the key is displayed. To deactivate the lock press the START button and hold for 4 seconds until the key symbol disappears.

Washer makes noise but, wont drain or spin


Check the lid switch (the part that gets pushed down when you close the lid). Try pushing it down with something. If you do not hear it make a CLICK sound, then it needs to be replaced.

Note: ALWAYS unplug appliances before attempting to make any repairs!!

Carefully and slowly look for a button, I dont remember which, but there is a button that duels as a child lock if held for three seconds, find this and hold for three seconds to fix:)

I am having trouble starting the washer . I set the cycle on casual and press the start button and the washer sensor showed to " Done" instead of starting. I only bought it three months ago.

Doesn't your unit have a lock light in addition to an on light? On mine when you start the machine a red light comes on, then after a minute or two the lock light above it comes on. Once the lock light lights, the machine shouldn't stop. If only the initial light comes on, the door isn't locking. As a result, as the drum moves the clothes and they push against the unlocked door, it turns the machine off. You might need to check/tighten the door latch. Also check the door wax motor/door lock assembly.
