The door (interlock) is likely faulty & needs to be replace.The door probably doesn't lock at all because the (interlock) is not energizing.

Cannot get rid of the lock symbol and it won't start even b4 the symbol appeared?


This sounds like a faulty door lock switch or a faulty main electronic logic board.When the door lock switch is faulty or opened it pauses the main board to allow the machine to stop working without switching off completely so that you don't lose the cycle when opening the door during a wash.But there should be a button to push to release the door lock when starting up the machine.if that doesen't work then there is a breakdown of communication from the door lock switch to the main logic board and visa versa if the board is faulty.If your machine is more than five years old then those two problems are the most common in those machines. Have a technician check it out.

The access door will not open, it is showing the locked symbol in the window


Your problem is either one of the 2 cases below.

1. Door Locked Indicator...'Keyhole' symbol
The 'Keyhole' symbol will illuminate 2 seconds after you have
pressed the 'START/CANCEL' button and will remain lit
throughout the wash programme.
The 'Keyhole' symbol will be flashing at the end of the
programme to indicate that the door is still locked. When the
symbol goes off you will hear a bleep and the door can then
be opened.

2. If the machine has been child locked, deactivate this feature by pressing and holding in the 'child lock' button for 2 seconds.You will hear a beep and the child lock symbol will go out,allowing you to use the machine normally.

Key Symbol appearing and cycle wont start


Please see if there is a lock installed into for safety. Press and hold power/start/pause as power is plugged.
Make sure that the door switch is working open and close once again to check as this can also stop the machine from operating.

Hi, my front loader washing machine (Bosch Logixx 8 sensitive) has child lock written on the screen and will not start the load. ive tried switching it on and off again but it does nothing. the door is...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

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

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

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.

good luck going forward.

There is a key sign coming up and the washing machine wont start


Hi,
Usually the key symbol that is getting displayed in your machine is the “child lock”.You have not mentioned the name of your washing machine.So please go through the user guide of your specific machine to unlock it.Iam sure your machine will start.

The digital display is showing a KEY symbol flashing, and i can't program a new load. What does this mean?


This is the childproof lock symbol and prevents you from changing a program once it has been selected The symbol flashes if the program is changed during a wash cycle. If the machine is switched off mid cycle with the lock on then it will continue the program as so as the machine is switched back on. To activate the lock press the START button and hold for 4 seconds and the key is displayed. To deactivate the lock press the START button and hold for 4 seconds until the key symbol disappears.
