Thats the control lock indicator. there should be a button on the control panel you need to hold down to unlock the controls. Im not sure witch one it is but it should indicate on there what on it is. Or look in the owners guid. If it still will not unlock you will possibly need a new control bord.

Power to machine but will not start a cycle

If child lock has been activated, all buttons on the control panel except for the power button will be inoperable. Child lock is usually activated by pressing either the [pre-wash] or [tub clean] button for 3 seconds. To deactivate the child lock function, press and hold the same key again for 3 seconds.
Try switching the machine off by pressing the on/off button. Press the same button after a few seconds to restart the machine.

The lady I work for has a Siemans washing machine, Sevie? IQ 1633 and does not know how to deactivate the child lock, also ther are a few silver buttond down the side of the main screen, she has no idea...

See your manual to reset the child lock. If you see the child lock button, press and hold it for 3-5 seconds and it should beep to reset.

If that doesn't work then unplug the unit for 30 seconds and try it again.

Hi, my front loader washing machine (Bosch Logixx 8 sensitive) has child lock written on the screen and will not start the load. ive tried switching it on and off again but it does nothing. the door is...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry.

good luck going forward.

How to release child lock in seimens washing machine that is wash and dry D12-52 1200 rpm

Child lock will deactivate only in the original programme that it was activated in. If you have forgotten the orginal programme, try deactivating separately in each programme.
To deactivate child lock press the clock key for 5 seconds.

Child lock

Try turning the dial back to off, and then try it again.
Make sure the door is shut properly.
