Press and hold the stop/cancel button on the washer up to 4 seconds or more and the lock should disable on this model washer

    To lock/unlock the controls between or during cycles, press and hold the Add Steam button for five seconds. LOC will be displayed if you attempt to wake up a "between cycle" locked unit and LOC will alternate with cycle time remaining in a "during cycle" locked unit.

    Repeat to unlock the controls when you are ready to operate the dryer. Use this feature to reduce the likelihood of accidental operation by children.

What does LOC error code mean?


I believe that the front panel lock has been enabled. (This keeps children from starting the unit accidentally.) Without the model number of your dryer, I can't be absolutely sure of the key or keys that you need to press and/or hold to toggle the lock off. On some Elite Steam Dryers, including the Kenmore 417.81100000, you need to press and hold the "Add Steam" button for 5 seconds. You'll hear a chime as the feature is disabled. On the Frigidaire Affinity dryers, the Select and Options button need to be pressed together to toggle the lock on and off.

Look on the control panel for a fine print "Child Lock" label or a padlock symbol below a specific key or with a line between two keys. That will indicate the buttons that you need to try. Otherwise check the manual.

If you have attempted to clear the lock and there was no response, the key pad may not be communicating with the brain of the appliance. This is usually a keypad fault and is cured by replacing it. However, it can indicate a wiring problem or a problem with the control unit.

If you don't have any indication of the child lock buttons or they didn't work, please add a comment with the model number. If the dryer is not currently running, you can look in the unit and try to find the model number. (It should be on the inside of the door surround for most dryers.) A few companies put the model number in other spots. If you know the manufacturer that will help me assist you further.

I hope this helps.

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Have a kenmore front load washer and shows pau 45 in the display. Whatever button i press shows err cannot do anything with the machine.


    LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
    This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
    To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

    I have error code loc the machine won't


    The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

    I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.
