    What is the model number of your dishwasher? Please confirm it is/is not an LG LDS 5811 (or if not, what is it?)

The LG LDS 5811 and all models that start with 'LDF" do not have a door latch. They do have a child lock _but_ that feature does not lock the door closed or open, it just locks the controls so the DW can not be turned on or settings changed.
So, please look at the right side edge of the opened door and post the model # back here.
Thanks!

Unlock child safety lock


The ones I am familiar with are a simple lever that you move up or down and are in the face of the door near the door lock mechanism To lock or unlock it is just a matter of moving the lever.

Just use the outside door handle and pull on the latch that is closed. If you use the inside door handle then you will have to undo the child lock.

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.

Just bought an 03 Focus. Cant unlock the child lock. There is no small hole in the door or I cant see a switch to unlock it. Help!!


I don't have this vehicle, but a quick web search indicates one of two ways to accomplish this task. Most sedans, SUVs, and such these days have child safety locks on the rear doors. Almost always, this switch is located on the rear face of door (the area that can't be seen when the door is closed). The general way to lock / unlock is to open the rear door and push a switch to the appropriate icon (either an open or closed padlock). The other way that I found, specific to the Focus, is to use your ignition key instead of a switch. Take your key to the back door, open it, and look for a keyslot that is in the area of the icons. My research indicates that the key vertical is locked and the key turned horizontal is unlocked.

Good luck.

How to unlock a child proof lock for a Toyota Camry?


open the door (from the outside)
keep the door open, sit down on your heels and look at the inside of the door next to the latch, (the bit you never see with the door closed) you will see a little "tag" sticking out, probably with <LOCK/UNLOCK> printed next to it, this is the child-lock.

please leave feedback good or bad

Have 2000 hyundai elantra cannot open both rear doors from inside or outside.They seem to be locked.called dealer want 90.00 just to look. how can door panel be removed without opening door?


Sounds to me like the child locks are on. Make sure the doors are unlocked first( if they are power locks unlock them manually to make sure they are unlocked), then try to open from the outside. It's just odd that both doors are doing the same thing. If that works, and you get both doors open, there is a small switch to disable the child lock near the latch on the door.

Door panels generally can not be removed with the door closed. There are plastic rivets that pop out when pulling the door panel away from the door frame.
