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.

    I suggest you start from beginning.

    If the child safe light is on, showing that it is activated ,then to de-activate it, hold child lock button down for at least 4 seconds, you should hear a bleep, and the child safe light should go out.

    If it does not , then try holding the start and cancel buttons together for at least 2 secs, and try to deactivate it again. if this still does not solve the prob, then I think you are going to have to call an engineer.

control settings will be allowed.If power is interrupted, at any time,pressing
any button will reactivate the child lock feature.

Machine displyas CL. Why


It means the Child Lock feature which locks the controls is turned on. Look for the two console buttons, usually adjacent, with the lock and child symbols between them like the one shown below. Press and hold those buttons simultaneously until the CL light turns off to unlock the controls.

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.
