Zanussi has several washer models with 6 KG capacity 1200 RPM spin speed specifications. You need the model number to find the manual here: http://www.zanussi.co.uk/support/manuals/ . The model number for a front load washer is inside the door on the lower right of the opening.
For the ZWG7120P, you need to press and hold both the Temperature and the Spin buttons for 6 seconds to toggle the lock on or off. (This time is approximate.) These are the two buttons closest to the program selector dial. There is a small padlock icon in a curved line below and between the buttons. The direct link to the manual for this model in English is http://www.electrolux-ui.com//DocumentDownLoad.aspx?DocURL=2010\132\948930EN.pdf .
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your washer model if the above child lock directions do not work on your machine.
Gorenje has some documentation for their washers here: http://www.gorenje.com/simplicity/en/washing_machines/simple_manual_for_washing . The numbers indicate the water temperature (in Celsius) for a given cycle. The common choices are a cottons load in hot water (60 degrees). This is great for towels and other whites. The mixed load is for permanent press that can be in warm water (40 degrees). Then there is a cold water cycle for delicates (30 degrees). However, you should check the fabric care label before choosing the cycle.

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...
Check out this tip I wrote about the noise and vibration that front load
washers can make..
Look just inside the door. Between the door and the tub. Feel around behind the rubber boot that seals the tub to the door. See if you find a bic lighter, pocket knife or something like this.
Please rate solution if helpful
with almost all front load washers you have to remember to run clean cycles due to moisture in unit and door constantly closed they get mold and mildew along with debris from washing it can leave very strange looking deposits on the front rubber area because it collects these things.Suggest running unit with bleach and no clothes several times to get rid of foreign matter inside and leave door open after to dry interior out overnite and one more bleach cycle in morning and should be good to go after.Refer to manual from this point how often to running clean cycle.
unless you can physicllly grab the object form inside the tub, perhaprs still hanging through one of the holes, no real easy way to acess between the tubs( the viens inside the tub are secured bya screw never took out but perhaps that will get you a litlle space to grab
I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....
I just went through the same issue with my Kenmore front loading washing machine. I assumed (and a Sears repairman also told me) that it is the bearings. After I took the drum assembly out, I saw the rear drum broken and the inner tub hitting the outer tub. I ordered the outer drum assembly and only when I took the inner drum assembly out I realized the the "Spider" attached to the inner drum (and spindle) was broken. Entire drum assembly cost $417 + shipping and it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new washer. I like the front loaders because they save water and good for the environment, but the US manufacturers have not yet perfected the technology like European manufacturers (or they don't want the machines to last too long just like cars). Anyway, I am looking into welding the spider tomorrow. If not will return the outer tub assembly and buy a top loading washer for $300!
