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 has key symbol on display unit permanently

Go to this link (or copy and paste it into your browser if it doesn't post as a link); third from the bottom is your user manual, second from the bottom is the quick reference guide. the key symbol is the childproof lock function - to activate or deactivate it press the start button for about 4 seconds during a cycle - check page 32 of the user manual for a more detailed description. Hope this helps - please ask again if not :)
