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.

It sounds like the child lock is activated.switch off from wall plug.then switch on whilst holding the start button for at least five seconds this should over ride the child lock.

Sounds like the control panel is defective or you have a stuck key on the unit. Check the control panel for any obvious cracks, damaged, etc. if all else fails, you'll have to replace the control panel.

Kenmore ultra wash machine won't run even with indicator lights on. Symbol on machine says Lock on

You have the control-lock function turned on. There should be a key located near (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually, it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock your dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Power to machine but will not start a cycle

If child lock has been activated, all buttons on the control panel except for the power button will be inoperable. Child lock is usually activated by pressing either the [pre-wash] or [tub clean] button for 3 seconds. To deactivate the child lock function, press and hold the same key again for 3 seconds.
Try switching the machine off by pressing the on/off button. Press the same button after a few seconds to restart the machine.

Just i bought a aser laptop but i have a problem....i am using windows 7, not working sound in ulead vedio studio10....... pls say what i do?


Thank you for choosing FixYa. I think it would be better if you isolate the problem first if its hardware or software. I suggest try to check the sound in control panel if its configured correctly just go to Control Panel->Sound, see if its going give sounds, if not try to reinstall the sound driver by going to Control Panel->Device Manager->Sound, double click sound it will collapse the sub folder just right click on it then choose uninstall restart the machine go back to Device Manager right click on sound then choose Scan for Hardware Changes, if those steps does not work it would be better to reload the Operating System after that if the machine still gives no sound, it means that there is a problem with the hardware.

Hope it helps you somehow.

Washing machine Bosch Maxx classic. Water is not able to drain away. I unsrewed the bottom front to manually drain off the water and managed to remove only a few items and found nothing else that may have...

Take the left side panel off and see you there is any blockage in the big plastic pipe array. It is pretty easy to take off and hosepipe water through it whilst knocking it to remove any blockages. The same for the red float value just to the right of the pipe array. Make sure you have it unplugged whilst doing this !!!

Not spinning

If the m/c is washing but not spinning, then u need to check the filter.
It is located behind the lower rear panel of m/c.
Remove panel and remove large black hose on the bottom of drum, there u will see the filter, remove and clean.
Refit and make sure the hose is on properly.Test.
If u have no drum action on wash or spin then u need to check the motor carbons, this can be done whilst u have the rear panel off.
If carbs o/k but still no motor action, then u prob have control board prob.
Plz rate my solution.

Locked Keyboard

Goto control panel - keyboard. See if U can unlock it from there. Else goto control panel- system and uninstall keyboard, then "action" scan for changes and reinstall the keyboard. Normally the cd's that come with the keyboard have the programs to lock them out. Recommend... don't install the lockout program.
