Fisher & Paykel dryer DE60F60EW1 has suddenly stopped working when I tried to change the program. How do I reset the machine

Here are a couple of possible reasons it stopped and solutions from the manual.

Adding/removing laundry in standby mode

If you want to add or remove laundry into/from your machine after the drying programme has
started, put the machine into Pause mode by pressing the START/PAUSE/CANCEL button. The
drying process will stop. Open the door at Pause position and close it again after adding or
removing laundry. Press START/PAUSE/CANCEL button to start the programme.

Any laundry added after the drying process was started may cause the already dried clothes in
the machine to intermingle with wet clothes and the result will be wet laundry after the drying
process is over.
It is not recommended to add laundry after the programme is started as it will increase the
programme time and energy consumption.

Childproof lock

There is a childproof lock to prevent any programme interruption due to the pressing of keys
while the programme is on. The loading door and all keys except the ON/OFF key on the panel are
deactivated when the childproof lock is active.
In order to activate the childproof lock, press on the StARt/PAUSe/CANCel and BUzzeR CANCel
buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds.

Fig.6 Using the
childproof lock

To start a new programme after the programme is over or to interrupt the
programme, the childproof lock should be deactivated.
To deactivate the childproof lock, press the same buttons for 3 seconds.

Two beeps will sound when the childproof lock is activated. A single beep
will sound when the lock is deactivated.

I was able to view the manual by a Google search and the third item on the Google search list was the manual, but it would only come up by selecting "quick view", otherwise it would crash the Acrobat reader plugin.

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.
