HI!!
Child Lock can be used to prevent your children from undesirable use on control panel while the dryer is running. When Child Lock is enabled, all the button will be locked and Child Lock glows. To lock Child Lock, Press and hold Rack Dry for 3 seconds, A single beep tone is heard and CL is displayed on the status window. To unlock Child Lock, press and hold Rack Dry for 3 seconds again.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Turn off child lock


Setting child lock
The child lock can be set to prevent a programme being accidentally started or a programme in operation being accidentally changed. The child lock function locks all buttons and the programme knob. The child lock can be activated or deactivated by holding down the OPTION and OK buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds.

  • Before programme is started: Appliance cannot be used
  • After programme is started: Programme in operation cannot be changed
The icon appears in the display to indicate that the child safety device is activated. The child safety device is not deactivated once the programme comes to an end. If you want to set a new programme, you must first deactivate the child safety device.

I have the 2010 Samsung Washer/Dryer 10kg and it is stuck on child lock. I can not get it off. Help?


Follow this instruction............. 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. When buttons, other than the Power button, do not respond, please check if the "Child Lock" function is on.
Hope this helps u out!

Asko Dryer t760 program menu won't change or is frozen The program menu is stuck on one setting, and the P1, P2, P3, P4 buttons don't change the program. When I try to reset the program (by pressing...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

By stating "the dryer does work" indicates it is likely an issue with programming.

What are the chances you have the menu lock-out option turned "on"...also referred to as "child lock".

You may quickly rule this out or confirm it is the problem indeed, by trying this.

CHILD-SAFE START

1. Turn the machine off then on.
2. Press ENTER five times, then press P3 five
times. (This must be done within 15 seconds.)
3. “Delayed start” displays with “0” flashing in the
lower right corner. Press the Right Arrow button
to toggle the display to “3.”


**NOTE: Child-Safe Menu Button**
Please note that when you set the child-safe Start
button, the Menu button is automatically
programmed to delay for three seconds before it
becomes active. This prevents a child from
accidentally changing the program settings.
When you want to change a program, press the Menu
button for three seconds to activate the menus. The
Menu button will work normally (without the
three-second delay) until you have completed your
changes. If it is not pressed for two minutes, it will
automatically revert back to the child-safe mode.

Let me know if this indeed solves the problem but either way please keep me posted.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My aiko tv is stuck on child lock. I have no remote and dont know how to get the child lock off.


You can try turning it on and pressing all the buttons down at the same time, that sometimes will reset tv's to factory.

My dryer had this same problem. I cleared it by unplugging the dryer from the wall for 20 seconds and then plugging it back in. After this "reset" of the electronics, it has functioned for 2 days without a problem.
