How do I use the Child Lock option on Samsung WF-B1456GW?

Hi there,

You can use the child lock feature in 2 ways.

1. To prevent operation of the washing machine when no wash cycle is running

To set this feature, switch the machine on using the POWER button at the top-left of the control-panel. Next, press and hold both the SPIN and RINSE buttons for about 3 seconds - until the child lock light indicator on the control panel illuminates. All functions of the washing machine will now be disabled apart from POWER ON/OFF until such time as the child lock is deactivated.

To deactivate the child lock, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons again until the child lock light indicator on the control panel goes out.

2. To prevent any tiny fingers from tampering with the machine while a program is running.

After pressing the START/PAUSE button to start the wash cycle, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons until the child lock light indicator illuminates. All buttons on the control panel will now be disabled until the child lock has been disabled. When the wash cycle has finished, you will need to switch the child lock off again to reactivate the buttons. Once you have finished using the washer, reactivate the child lock again before switching the power off as above.

The feature can also be used when using the delayed start feature, but needs to be set after pressing the START/PAUSE button.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Washer won't run. It beeps 3 times and flashes "err" and "LOC".

HI. The term"LOC" will be an indication of the "Child Locking" feature that has been activated either by mistake or intentionally. This is a safety feature to prevent unwanted starts when children are present.

To unlock the controls,press "Options and Select" at the same time and hold for 10 seconds until ”LOC” is no longer displayed.

  • NOTE_ If the release procedure doesn't unlock the unit and the letters LOC continue to appear, this will be a strong indication of a severe fault within the main control board. try to power cycle the unit if this is the case. if the power cycling doesn't produce good results, replace the main control board assembly.
