you should be able to turn it off by holding it in for a while longer,5-10 seconds, unless the circuit board is at fault.

My back door in 2004 Ford focus child locks are locked and I can't close my door. How do I disengage the child lock to close my door?


Your latch may be stuck in the latched position. Try pulling on the handle as to open the door while lifting the latch arm.

How can I release chid lock on hotpoint ultima wt960


The Child Lock button is the second from the right in the line of buttons below the LCD screen. Press and hold this button for at least 2 seconds (or until you hear the beep and the icon light goes out). With a number of appliances, I've found that it takes longer than indicated to release a child lock so hold the button until you hear the beep.

The manual for the Ultima WT960 is available here: http://imagebank.indesitcompany.co.uk/brochures_online/pdf/Hotpoint/Laundry/ultima-7kg-lcd-wm-19505771900.pdf . See the bottom of page 18 for the child lock toggle information; the picture of the washer option buttons is on page 9. Use the Adobe Reader Zoom to see the keys (at step 5 of the Starting a typical wash programme). Other Hotpoint appliance manuals are available here: http://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/hs/pages/manual/manualSearch.do .

If the lock will not release, then you may have a problem with the keypad or the controller.

I hope this helps.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

The child locks are stuck it only opens from the outside


there is a slider switch on the door(between door and frame) that you can lock or unlock the child locks to prevent them from opening the door from inside but still can open door from outside----just slide the lock switch to enable or disable the child lock.

if they are stuck/stiff---you may have to remove the door panel for repair.

Usually they work free with a liitle lubricant(WD-40) to slide easier.

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.
