SOURCE: Miele Washing Machine Code: Check drain

This means that the drain attached to the pump is clogged, remove the drain plug check fro debris and replace...you should be good to go.

How to remove child lock on hotpoint washing machine


With most hotpoint washing machines you hold the 'Child Lock' button down for 4 seconds. You will then hear a bleep and the child safe icon will go out.
Alternately interrupting the power supply (switching it off at the wall) will usually disable the child lock.

Tip

My Miele washing machine is locked.


Recently I received many requests from users in troubles because they could not unlock their washing machine.

I decided to publish a tip illustrating the unlock procedure.

These instructions apply to most Miele front loading washing machines. They will work on all the W4800 series washers.
Instructions on how to set on and off your Miele’s child lock function are also contained in the user manual.

If you attempt to open the door while the Child Lock function is activated you will get the message "Machine locked" and the picture below on display:

fcd46c0.gif


If the door lock is locked during the wash cycle, press the pause button, and the door will open.

In order to deactivate the Child Lock:

  • Press and hold the "Heavy Soil" button until the display shows an unlocked pad lock picture and says Ready to Use (hold up to ten seconds, it should be less).

If you want to re-activate the Child Lock:

  • Press and hold the "Heavy Soil" again, until the display shows a locked pad lock picture and says Ready to Use .



The drum door cannot be opened, and the machine may stay locked if one of conditions below is occurring:

  1. The water temperature is more than 55°C (130°F).
  2. The water level is too high.
  3. The Child Lock function is activated.
  4. There is a fault.

If the washer is in one of the above conditions, you will get the machine locking even if child lock is off.

If the door is locked because of a fault, and there is water in the drum, the machine will also lock up.

In that case the door will open only after accessing the drain pump.
The pump service door is opened using a tool stored behind the dispenser drawer.

The tool must be used only after disconnecting power.

I think I will post a detailed procedure on how to fix a blocked drain pump on the next tip.

I hope this tip has helped you to fix your problem.

Goodbye.

Believe you have activated child lock.turn off machine at socket then whilst holding the the start button turn on power and hold button in for three to five seconds.if you have a display...look for the key symbol...if it's there then child lock is activated..follow above procedure to cancel lock and key icon should disappear.

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.

Regards,
BElectric

Miele 300 child lock


I have the instructions for this machine and was unable to find information on a child lock fort his machine, you can try pressing and holding for 3 - 5 sec the power button or start botton or both at the same time. If neither of thses work i suspect your model does not have a child lock function.
