Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Please score this solution accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

Unlock child lock


On the Audi Q7, depending on country and options the child lock is either:

1. On the drivers armrest, near the window switches, there are 2 buttons with a little orange light and a picture of a little baby on them. Deselect both buttons to turn off the child locks.
-OR-
2. Open the passenger doors, there is a small keyhole on the inside of the door above the latch, use your key and turn it 90 degrees to turn off the child lock.

Hope that helps

Right rear child lock is on the door but cant get the door open


Child Locks will stop anyone on the inside of the car from opening the door. If the child lock is on then the door can only be opened from the outside of the car. Of course the main door lock must be off just as any door must be unlocked to be opened from the outside.

Now if you do not want the child door lock to be on then you must first open the door from the outside with the main lock open or unlocked. Look at the space that is covered when the door is closed. There you will see the lever that turns the child lock on or off. Simply move it to the off position.

Good Luck.

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

We had the same problem and this website solved it for us. The child lock is on when the lock symbol light in the lower right of the panel is on. The machine will not start with the light on. If you press the Option and Select buttons together (there is a lock symbol with a line to the two buttons), the lock symbol light will switch between on and off. When it's off, the machine can start. None of this was in the "Use and Care Guide," maybe we lost our manual. But thanks for helping to solve the problem!
