Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Methinks you could do with a manual for the future!
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct.
Good luck,
John C.

Cannot get rid of the lock symbol and it won't start even b4 the symbol appeared?


This sounds like a faulty door lock switch or a faulty main electronic logic board.When the door lock switch is faulty or opened it pauses the main board to allow the machine to stop working without switching off completely so that you don't lose the cycle when opening the door during a wash.But there should be a button to push to release the door lock when starting up the machine.if that doesen't work then there is a breakdown of communication from the door lock switch to the main logic board and visa versa if the board is faulty.If your machine is more than five years old then those two problems are the most common in those machines. Have a technician check it out.

Washing machine has stopped and a symbol of a key is flashing. Door will not open and no program will work


The key and flashing = child lock.

To get rid of this - turn to normal setting, press the power switch and keep pressing for several seconds. The symbol should disappear and the beeping should stop.

I have a bosch clasixx machine there is a symbol like a key on timer and machine wont start how do i get rid of this


Hello, Welcome to fixya.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry and good luck going forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Have bosch classixx6 1200 express which has frozen displays a flashing key and 36 will not budge, desperate Molly


Simply press and hold the Start button for 4 seconds and the childproof lock will turn off - the key symbol will disappear from the display.

If you want to activate the lock then press and hold the Start button until the key symbol appears on the display.

The digital display is showing a KEY symbol flashing, and i can't program a new load. What does this mean?


This is the childproof lock symbol and prevents you from changing a program once it has been selected The symbol flashes if the program is changed during a wash cycle. If the machine is switched off mid cycle with the lock on then it will continue the program as so as the machine is switched back on. To activate the lock press the START button and hold for 4 seconds and the key is displayed. To deactivate the lock press the START button and hold for 4 seconds until the key symbol disappears.
