Sadly when we do not know a MAKE we can not assist you with the problem, perhaps if you contact the Mfg's website and ask tech support they can .

I have an aeg washer dryer L87695NWD which is stuck on drying. When I turn the button to select a washing program the drying light stays on, and the washing light is still off.. what can I do?


From user manual:

10.4 At the end of the drying programme

1. The appliance stops automatically.
2. The acoustic signals operate (if they are active).
3. In the display (number "0") comes on.
4. The indicator of button Start/Pause goes off.
5. The last minutes of the drying cycle the appliance performs the
anticrease phase. The anti-crease symbol ietounus3lrwasi2ko2vq2k81km1my9gxk62inwk5r2qaaaabjru5erkjggga=flashes. The
door is still locked (the key ezfxrjud2vanwq0oeawt0sih4u7drnvleuvj3nru5hkbv+p2lq2ra1xbwbjeddwhka3byaaaaasuvork5cyiiasymbol is on).
6. Press button On/Off for some seconds to deactivate the
appliance. After some minutes from the end of the programme,
the energy saving function automatically deactivates the
appliance.
7. When the door locked light goes off you can open the door.
8. Remove the laundry from the appliance. Make sure that the drum
is empty.
9. Keep the door ajar, to prevent mildew and odours.
10. Close the water tap.

If this doesn't help than check:
- If the delay start is set, cancel the setting or wait for the end of
countdown.
- Deactivate the Child Lock function if it is on

If anything of this doesn't help then pay attention to all the symbols appears on the display and check what it means in the user manual.

Whirlpool washer won't start. Not a water problem. Door lock lift on or at times flashing. Think it's something to do with the door or panel.


At the right end of your panel you will find the 'end of cycle' symbol, to unlock keep this depressed for 3 seconds, this is the child lock feature. You do it again, and the machine locks.
Click if helped......

Cannot get rid of the lock symbol and it won't start even b4 the symbol appeared?


This sounds like a faulty door lock switch or a faulty main electronic logic board.When the door lock switch is faulty or opened it pauses the main board to allow the machine to stop working without switching off completely so that you don't lose the cycle when opening the door during a wash.But there should be a button to push to release the door lock when starting up the machine.if that doesen't work then there is a breakdown of communication from the door lock switch to the main logic board and visa versa if the board is faulty.If your machine is more than five years old then those two problems are the most common in those machines. Have a technician check it out.

My bosch classixx6 1200 express keeps flashing the key/lock symbol and bleeps so I cant start a programme


The door is not locked properly or the door lock switch is not functioning. In the second case the door lock functioning can be checked by bypassing the door switch (for testing only). After bypassing the switch the program can start. If it succeeds replace the door lock switch.

The access door will not open, it is showing the locked symbol in the window


Your problem is either one of the 2 cases below.

1. Door Locked Indicator...'Keyhole' symbol
The 'Keyhole' symbol will illuminate 2 seconds after you have
pressed the 'START/CANCEL' button and will remain lit
throughout the wash programme.
The 'Keyhole' symbol will be flashing at the end of the
programme to indicate that the door is still locked. When the
symbol goes off you will hear a bleep and the door can then
be opened.

2. If the machine has been child locked, deactivate this feature by pressing and holding in the 'child lock' button for 2 seconds.You will hear a beep and the child lock symbol will go out,allowing you to use the machine normally.

Classixx 6 1200 bosch washer...I've set the washer to a programme regularly used but an indicator light 'a Key' symbol flashes above the time indicator and the programme will not start . Door is closed...


It is the childproof lock that has been set, to clear it you need to set machine as you would normally to start a programme but hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds, that will clear it, remember that is also the way to put the lock on again so I would advise not holding the start button down too long.
