Just unplug the machine. Wait a few seconds, then plug back in. This always works for me.

How to get the childlock to unlock


Try holding the child lock button for 4 seconds (or until you hear the beep). This should toggle the lock on or off depending on the current setting.

I hope this helps. If this doesn't work, there is probably a problem with the control panel (keypad or the wiring).

(I've found that sometimes it feels like you have to hold the button for longer than the 4 seconds to toggle the lock off. So try holding the button for longer before trying to find a problem with the control panel.)

The childlock is on and I cannot use it


Try pressing the Pre-wash or Tub Clean button for 3 seconds. The correct button will have *Child Lock in a small font below the main label.

I hope this helps.

(these are the standard keys for the child lock for most LG washers. See http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6304 for pictures of the keys)

How do i unlock the childlock


Hi

To unlock the washer press and hold 'dry' & 'spin' button. It should unlock now. If this doesn't work then press and hold "end of cycle" button for 5-10 seconds. However, if it is still locked then unplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it back. After plugging it back press and hold Start button for 10 seconds to unlock it. Hope this helps...

Hi,all display lights are on including childlock but ther all not resonding can only turn on and off at the wall,door opens but nothing else,,please help, shirely


Found the solution a while back, forgot to post it. It was no malfunction. The problem was casued by the stupid child safety lock that we had inadvertently turned on (two buttons simultaneously pressed on front panel). Pressing the power button did not unlock this safety mechanism, for some reason.

How do we get childlock off a hotpoint wm 864


When activated all the buttons will be disabled and a child will not be able to alter any wash programme or option settings. Once selected this feature remains activated, even when the machine is ‘off’.

To use this feature press the ‘Child Lock’ button and hold down for 2 seconds. The child safe icon will begin to flash. When the icon stops flashing the feature is activated. If any of the control buttons are pressed, the child safe icon will flash and the machine will bleep 3 times: no alterations to the control settings will be allowed. If power is interrupted, at any time, pressing any button will reactivate the child lock feature.

To deactivate this feature hold the ‘Child Lock’ button down for 4 seconds. You will then hear a bleep and the child safe icon will go out.
