I got the same problem with the s12 72 greek version.The machine locks with the menu button down pressed for 5 seconds. But it can lock with each program seperately. So if you locked the machine with rinse for example you must select rinse and press menu down for 5 secs.If you cant remember the last program you lock it with test everything and each time keep the menu down.

HI I KNOW IT SOUNDS DAFT BUT HAVE YOU TRIED SWITCHING THE CHILD LOCK OFF? I CANT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHICH BUTTONS IT IS ON YOUR MODEL BUT YOU USUALLY HAVE TO PRESS 2 BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME (& SOMETIMES HOLDING THEM FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS) RATHER THAN JUST 1 TO SWITCH THE CHILD LOCK ON/OFF. IF YOU STILL HAVE THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IT WILL TELL YOU WHICH BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO SWITCH CHILD LOCK ON/OFF HOPE THIS HELPS!

I have an aeg washer dryer L87695NWD which is stuck on drying. When I turn the button to select a washing program the drying light stays on, and the washing light is still off.. what can I do?


From user manual:

10.4 At the end of the drying programme

1. The appliance stops automatically.
2. The acoustic signals operate (if they are active).
3. In the display (number "0") comes on.
4. The indicator of button Start/Pause goes off.
5. The last minutes of the drying cycle the appliance performs the
anticrease phase. The anti-crease symbol ietounus3lrwasi2ko2vq2k81km1my9gxk62inwk5r2qaaaabjru5erkjggga=flashes. The
door is still locked (the key ezfxrjud2vanwq0oeawt0sih4u7drnvleuvj3nru5hkbv+p2lq2ra1xbwbjeddwhka3byaaaaasuvork5cyiiasymbol is on).
6. Press button On/Off for some seconds to deactivate the
appliance. After some minutes from the end of the programme,
the energy saving function automatically deactivates the
appliance.
7. When the door locked light goes off you can open the door.
8. Remove the laundry from the appliance. Make sure that the drum
is empty.
9. Keep the door ajar, to prevent mildew and odours.
10. Close the water tap.

If this doesn't help than check:
- If the delay start is set, cancel the setting or wait for the end of
countdown.
- Deactivate the Child Lock function if it is on

If anything of this doesn't help then pay attention to all the symbols appears on the display and check what it means in the user manual.

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.

How to release child lock in seimens washing machine that is wash and dry D12-52 1200 rpm


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.
To deactivate child lock press the clock key for 5 seconds.

try pressing stop or cancel button for 10 full seconds. If this does not work, unplug the machine for 10 minutes. While unpluged, press and hold cancel or stop but for 10 seconds, then plug machine back in. If it still does not work, test the door switch with an ohmmeter to make sure the door switch is not faulty.

My microwave is locked and i dont know how to unlock it


"Locke" meaning the door? or locked meaning the buttons don't work? If it is the buttons then you have the child lock on. Push and hold the "Start" button for 4 to 5 seconds, and it will unlock.

CHILD LOCK STUCK ON


I agree with the initial solution, depress the child lock button for at least 3 seconds.
If it does not clear, then try again.
Good luck.
