I accidentally pressed the select and option button together and locked the control panel. The manual says to press these two buttons again. I cannot get the control panel to unlock.

    I tried disconnecting the power and this did not reset the problem. I read the manual which told me to hold down the select and option button for three seconds.

    The fix turned out that I had the hold both buttons down for around 30 seconds. This would be nice to have in the manual.

    Removing the power does not reset the control panel lock. The control board has non-volital memory.

    The manual says hold both buttons down for three seconds to remove the control panel lock.

    The fix ended up being, holding the two buttons down for much longer, around 30 seconds until I heard a beep.

F fresh gently pushing the lock button on the front load GE washer and asking for help not gettinh any through trial and error I figured it out myself if you accidentally lock yourself out of a front load washer to clear the lock light and let you back in just press and hold start/pause button until red light goes off

I have a code of loc coming on and my dryer wont work how can I fix this issue??


The control panel is locked. on the control panel, there will be either a "lock" button that you hold down for 3-5 seconds to unlock, or it will have "lock" in small letters with a line pointing to 2 of the option buttons. hold the 2 buttons it points to for 3-5 seconds and it will unlock. the control lock is a child safty feature that will not allow any the washer to work until it is unlocked. P.S. to put the control panel into the lock mode, is the same way as you unlock the control panel.

All my chanels are blocked every time i change the chanel ive got to press the 1111 key every time to get the station


Hi,

You've probably activated the parental control / child lock. This can be done accidentally by pressing a certain combination of buttons on the remote. To turn this off:

1. Press the "MENU" button on the remote control
2. Select the "LOCK" option (the padlock icon) with the left and right arrow buttons "" ">" on the remote
3. Enter the password. The default is 0000 but yours appears to be set to 1111. Try either or both.
4. On the next screem make sure "SYSTEM LOCK" and "UNRATED LOCK" are set to "OFF". Highlight each option with the up and down arrows on the remote and change the setting using "" or ">"
5. When they are both set to "OFF", press "MENU" again to return to watching TV.

All your channels should now be unblocked.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

What does the code LOC mean?


HI. This is a simple lockout feature that will allow you to prevent accidental starts or stops when children are present. It can be initiated by pressing the Options and Select buttons at the same time for ten seconds. This will initiate the lockout feature and the letters "LOC" will appear on your display. To remove the control lock out, simply, press the Options and Select buttons together once again at the same time and hold them for 10 seconds. This will release the lock out and the letters "LOC" will disappear.

This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:

Kenmore front load washer 970-c45072-00


We had the same problem and this website solved it for us. The child lock is on when the lock symbol light in the lower right of the panel is on. The machine will not start with the light on. If you press the Option and Select buttons together (there is a lock symbol with a line to the two buttons), the lock symbol light will switch between on and off. When it's off, the machine can start. None of this was in the "Use and Care Guide," maybe we lost our manual. But thanks for helping to solve the problem!
