There is a code CL on panel. Cannot start machine.

CL means the front panel child lock has been activated. Without knowing the make and model of your washing machine, I can't identify the correct keys to press and hold. On some brands, you need to press two keys and hold them for 5+ seconds. For others, you may need to hold a single key for 10+ seconds. You have to hold the appropriate key(s) until you hear a chime or the code disappears.

Often, there will be a tiny lock or child's face symbol on the key, underneath it or in the middle of a line between two keys on the control panel. The font for the symbol is much smaller than the rest of the type on the washer.

The model number is critical with some brands. One LG washer can toggle the child lock with the Tub Clean button. Another needs the Dry and Spin buttons held simultaneously. Yet another model, you need to press and hold End of Cycle. A fourth LG model toggles the child lock with the Options & Select keys.

If you add a comment with the make and model of your washer, I should be able to help you identify the child lock key(s) that you accidentally pressed.

Shift Key Problem , Royal Quiet Deluxe

There is a carriage shifting screw on both sides of the typewriter. You will recognize this because it is a screw that has a big bump head with felt on it. It is being hit when you hit that shift lever. You will have to loosen the securing nut first before adjusting.

Python 476p

May depend how it was programmed. My Python 476P was setup with Lock and Unlock pressed to get it to remote start. Then, get in the vehicle, put the key in the "on" position and press lock / unlock to get it to end the remote start cycle. Then Drive off ...

I got a second remote, followed some directions via YouTube to program. Key in the on position, then hit the valet button once, then press and hold. One chirp, hit lock on remote. Let go of valet button . Press, then press and hold, two chirps. Hit unlock. Continue for 3 (aux) and 4 (panic). End result was Lock would also unlock. Unlock did nothing. And Aux started the remote start sequence.

Having bought a vehicle used, then no manual made this a bit difficult. I will continue to test alternate programming to try to match the original remote so accidentally firing up the rig doesn't happen. My suspicion is I have to maybe do Lock, Aux, Lock/Unlock, panic instead. Good luck.

Viper remote start system just installed. When I use the remote to lock the car--there is no longer a chirp noise that confirms I hit the lock key. Thanks, Mary

I don't know which remote starter you have, but I have a Viper 5101. To fix this problem, I started the ignition, then turned it off, leaving the key in the ignition. I pushed the Valet button (it has a blinking blue light, mine is near my rear view mirror) and held it. Then, I pushed it 3 times, then held it down a 4th time. Then, I pressed the lock button once. I pushed the Valet button again to take it out of programming mode, and it worked! I got this sequence of steps from the installation manual online: Hope that helps!

open s door turn on the key to the on position press the valet button once and then press one more time and hold it , you will hear a chirp and then you hit the lock button on your remote and then you will hear another chirp. Once you heard that you can let go of the button and turn off the key and your new remote should be program. Now if you have special settings set to the other remotes then you must also program them as well. The only way to program those settings would be using a bitwriter, and only authorize shops have those
