Question about Viking Washing Machines

Open Question

On a Viking oven there's a symbol of a padlock which when held for 3 seconds makes the display buttons not operate thus protecting young children. Any idea how to make the display operational again?

SOURCE: Problem with main fan oven - electric

there is an overheat stat and this is operating and cutting out the oven. the causes are several but here are the main things to look for: oven stat is faulty causing the oven to overheat. you should check over the range to see if stat is reasonably accurate. overheat stat itself is faulty. there is another stat which turns on the casing fan. (this is the fan which is out of sight - not the fan inside the oven) if this stat is faulty and not turning on the casing fan, then the overheat stat will operate. the casing fan is faulty or jammed. lack of ventilation. see if you can narrow it down a bit and get back to me if you wish

SOURCE: Display clock failure so no main oven

check you have power to clock and if not, check wiring back to find out why not. to get oven working, you can bypass the clock by joining the two wires to the clock relay. these clocks are remarkably expensive

SOURCE: F1 shows on display and beeps constantly.

The F1 error code relates to a defective touch pad or clock (ERC). It seems that the reason for it in your case is some liquid entered the unit during its cleaning. Unplug the power cable and wait for few hours, In case it will not help, apart the ERC unit and and dry the touch pad and the clock. Good luck!

SOURCE: Unit crashes then will not restart after being unresponsive.

After removing the battery, I discovered a small brass reset button, about 3 mm in diameter, near the battery connection terminal. This was gently pressed with a pen for 15 seconds. After refitting the battery, the unit was fully functional again. This reset results in needing to set the clock again. No other settings are affected.

Only one of two reasons for your problem--either the DM is bad OR:

These sets sometimes develop a problem with the front keyboard---micro switches in back of the plastic buttons can fail (reset one is common).

Remove front speaker grill and inspection plate behind it and follow the group of wires coming down from the front keyboard to the right top edge of the opening.

About 8 inches to the right you will find two plugs that are inline--they go to the keyboard--disconnect both and turn set on with REMOTE (remote receiver is behind the screen).

If the set now functions you have a bad micro switch on the keyboard (most likely the reset) and two choices---either leave the keyboard unplugged and just use the remote or remove entire screen and get at the circuit board and locate and replace defective micro switch.

Lots of people miss this as a possible choice--easy to do to either know it is the keyboard or not.

If set does not operate this way DM is bad regardless of how caps look.

When I attempt to enter anything with the keypad the display says "locked". Is there some way to unlock it.


Many microwaves have children locks. Of course they are for safety reasons. they are for tricking the little kids from playing with the big people toys.

Process A
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the CANCEL keypad for 3 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "LOC" or a padlock icon will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED).
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Process B
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the START keypad for 5 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "L" will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED)
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Hope this helps?

Oven door locked after power outage


Usually, on electronic oven controls, the user must clear the "PF" error or other such similar condition first. Next, look for a set of buttons with "lock" below them or a "key" symbol. You would then press and hold both buttons for 3-4 seconds until the lock light goes out, or a message will show "disable". I don't know what model range you have so I am giving options that I have seen in the field. On some ovens, just a single button is pressed and held--some models have a separate "cooktop lockout" and an "oven lockout". This prevents children from either activating or changing settings when un-supervised. However, the power outage may have *damaged the electronic oven control* by hitting it with a current surge when the power was restored. THIS IS COMMON and why I always encourage my customers to purchase a "whole house surge protector" for between 60 and 100.00. It is some of the best money you can spend to protect your house--current surges aren't covered by warranties or most protection agreements.

The lock symbol is showing but the door can open and no functions on the oven will work apart from the clock


This is the keypad lock (symbol looks like a padlock?). Find the button that has a padlock symbol near it, hold down for 3 seconds, should unlock your keypad. This should be described in your user manual if not indicated on the touchpad.

A red padlock symbol is showing on the panel of my WCVH6800 front load washer. I can't change any of the wash settings. How do I fix this?


Here's what the Padlock represents:


Lock Function

You can lock the controls to prevent any selections from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle. children cannot accidentally start the washer by touching pads with this option selected.


To lock the washer, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds (on some models use SIGNAL button). To unlock the washer controls, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The control lock icon on the display will light up when it is on.


NOTE: The POWER button can still be used when the machine is locked.

When I switch on, there is a pad lock symbol that gets displayed and I can't turn up the heating elements.


Thank you for using FixYa. The pad lock symbol is a child safety device to prevent accidental operation. Press or touch the area on or around the padlock symbol and the indicator will go out and thus allow you to use the hob

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This could be the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............
