I have a samsung washing machine model WF8602NHW. The child lock display is on and despite trying everything I cannot deactivate it.

    I unplugged the machine for hours and the status quo remains - the child lock is still active and I cannot open the washing machine door. Do you have any other options for solving this?

Unplug the machine for at least half an hour if pressing and holding the Child Lock unlocking key combination does not deactivate it. This is to forcibly reset the control and eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch.

I am trying to start my washer and the symbol of a head with a collar appears on the dial and i am unable to change any of the controlls or start the washer.


Hi.

Samsung machines error codes are numbers and letters, then I the machine is not in fault mode, but child lock has likely kicked in.

Here is child lock icon:

ginko_44.gif
Try the following:

ACTIVATING/DEACTIVATING
If you want to activate/deactivate the Child Lock function, press the Soil Level and Signal
buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.
How It Works:
1. "Child Lock" can be activated while your Washer is running.
2. Once you activate "Child Lock", all controls (except for the Power button) will be locked
until you deactivate "Child Lock".
3. The Child Lock button will be lit while it is in effect.


Here the user manual.

Child lock will deactivate only in the original programme that it was activated in. If you have forgotten the orginal programme, try deactivating separately in each programme.
