How do I remove the front control panel?

I need to do this to fix the LED power on light and the program control child lock spring both of which have become dislodged during transit. I've removed the drawer, the control knobs, and all the screws in the front panel but the panel doesn't budge. Are there plastic locking tabs or something?

Thanks in advance. Jon.

Remove the 3 screws at the rear top to remove the top cover. you now have access to back of control panel. tou should see some plastic lugs sticking out through metal clips. you will have to force the lugs through the clips with a flat blade screw driver. be careful it is easy to brake them

Will not start

Check the door lock and switch, check the input from the switch to the panel. If this is fine then check for power to the panel.remove the panel and reset the connectors to the panel.
If there is no action even after the panel is fixed with the program proceeding further, it is possible that the program controller unit is faulty.

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.

HE3 front load washer has "control Blocked" light is on. No button works on control panel.

You have locked the control via the "Child Lock." Look for the button with a small padlock icon on it, press and hold for about 4 seconds to unlock. That should fix ya!

Machine light turns on, cycle light blinks, door is closed but the door lock light doesn't come on and washer won't start. Code shows f dl?

The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.

Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.

Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.

Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.

After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.

The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.

Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel.

Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.

To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.

Put the eased part of the door gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.
