I'm not familiar with this model of dryer, but I understand that this is a vent less condenser model(?). If there is a condenser tank on the dryer, you may have to empty it from time to time. The excessive steam could be a sign that you have a tank that is full. I don't know if this will be of much help to you (I hope it does). Double check your owner's manual to see if it mentions anything about this in the care and use instructions. Take care.

There are usually 3 compartments in the drawer, the smallest is for using fabric conditioner, the largest is where you put the powder or detergent in, the middle size one you do not put anything in, as it is where the cold water comes in for rinsing.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: My washer has E:13 on the display. I called Bosch

According to the service manual, you should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. I would run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear. I have also read that if this persists, powder HE detergent is better to use instead of the liquid because of certain chemicals contained in the liquids that cause it to congeal in some front loader drainage pipes. I hope this helps.

I have a bosch clasixx machine there is a symbol like a key on timer and machine wont start how do i get rid of this


Hello, Welcome to fixya.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry and good luck going forward.

How can i turn off key symbol


Hello Lucy and welcome to Fixya.

As far as the "signal" activation or de-activation goes, it should be performed before starting a load of laundry and it is as follow's... 1) Turn the program selector to any program as you would doing laundry. Add your items... 2) When you close the door the "start/pause" light flashes... 3) Press the "menu" button until the signal indicator is displayed and flashes ( a small speaker symbol ) as does the start/pause light. If no buttons are pressed within 10 seconds, the current setting will be saved. 4) Press the "select" button until the desired volume or "off" is reached/displayed. 5) Press the "start/pause" button so the program starts and the setting is saved after the cycle has completed. As for the "key" symbol, your washer has a "child lock" program and the symbol indicates it has been activated.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Child lock flashing


Hello Lynn, Welcome to fixya. The key symbol indicates the washer has somehow been placed in the "child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program to over-ride it. Here's what to do to deactivate it... 1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display ) 2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display. 3) Finally by pressing the start/pause button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program. That is the procedure for the child lock function on your Bosch washer and should solve your problem. Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly. Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry. good luck going forward. macmarkus :)

There is a key symbol and I cannot start my next load


Hello and welcome to Fixya.

You`re likely right on about inadvertently locking out the controls. Your washer has a "child lock" program and I suspect that has been activated.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the start/pause button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

If this indeed was the issue preventing you from operating the washer you should now be free to select any cycle and carry on.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Simply press and hold the Start button for 4 seconds and the childproof lock will turn off - the key symbol will disappear from the display.

If you want to activate the lock then press and hold the Start button until the key symbol appears on the display.
