Turn off child lock

Setting child lock
The child lock can be set to prevent a programme being accidentally started or a programme in operation being accidentally changed. The child lock function locks all buttons and the programme knob. The child lock can be activated or deactivated by holding down the OPTION and OK buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds.

  • Before programme is started: Appliance cannot be used
  • After programme is started: Programme in operation cannot be changed
The icon appears in the display to indicate that the child safety device is activated. The child safety device is not deactivated once the programme comes to an end. If you want to set a new programme, you must first deactivate the child safety device.

Can not unlock the child saftey locks on my beko tumble dryer

First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your online technical support needs.

Here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for one model of Beko Tumble Dryer (DRVT 71):

To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted section of text just above.

This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents, although many computers already have this type of utility pre-installed.

You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 16 of that manual for detailed instructions and illustrations on how to operate the CHILD LOCK feature on that particular model of dryer. Hopefully the procedure will be similar enough to help you out with yours.

Basically it says to deactivate the CHILD LOCK feature, just press both the START/PAUSE/CANCEL button and the LOW TEMPERATURE button simultaneously, and then hold them both down for about 3 seconds.

Otherwise just comment back here and let us know the exact model number of your machine so we can track down the appropriate information for you.

I truly hope that was helpful to you.

Good luck and take care.

Turned on Dryer today; problem; Estimated time remaining window shows CL (no time) Non of the time buttons selected show time in window. Dryer runs forever; gets hot and drys clothes. Pause button does...

The Child Lock feature is activated and it can be deactivated by pressing and holding the DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds or until the CL display is cleared.

Indicate the exact model number of the dryer if the control panel doesn't look like the one shown above or if no button with the small "PRESS & HOLD 3 SEC TO SET CHILD LOCK" (DRY LEVEL) marking is found.

It says LOC on it when I try push any buttons to run it??

I think it has a Child Lock feature on this dryer, which may have been activated accidently. Google this model, for the online manual to release the Child Lock setting back to normal.

You have activated the child lock, basically you have held the start button for over 3 secs. turn the dryer to the cycle you want and keep your finger on ther start button to deactivate. If this doesn't work you may have a module problem. Double check your manual for child lock info. if no module go to link and enter you Enr number.
