My machine show a 01 and a flashing key I try to do hold a button for 5 sec to deactivate but time tab it's not reacting with at is the prob


Your washer is in the "child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program. Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. If nothing is pressed within 10 seconds.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display. Once you see that in the display, press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display. Finally by pressing the start/pause button the key symbol should disappear - confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Pl click if helped.

My washing machine is beeping and showing the key light and not turning on. The door opens though but it seems to be saying its locked!? It doesn't show the cycle time either. How can i get it to go...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Bosch, but you didn't specify the model number. It sounds like the "child lock" selection has been activated, either intentional or accidental.


To reset it on many Bosch it is as follows...(if this fails, please provide your model number)

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.

**Many times you can also push and hold the start key for several seconds and this too will deactivate the selection...on various models**


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

Thank you for choosing FixYa. I'll need to watch for your reply if that doesn't work or before moving forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

How do I use the Child Lock option on Samsung WF-B1456GW?


Hi there,

You can use the child lock feature in 2 ways.

1. To prevent operation of the washing machine when no wash cycle is running

To set this feature, switch the machine on using the POWER button at the top-left of the control-panel. Next, press and hold both the SPIN and RINSE buttons for about 3 seconds - until the child lock light indicator on the control panel illuminates. All functions of the washing machine will now be disabled apart from POWER ON/OFF until such time as the child lock is deactivated.

To deactivate the child lock, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons again until the child lock light indicator on the control panel goes out.

2. To prevent any tiny fingers from tampering with the machine while a program is running.

After pressing the START/PAUSE button to start the wash cycle, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons until the child lock light indicator illuminates. All buttons on the control panel will now be disabled until the child lock has been disabled. When the wash cycle has finished, you will need to switch the child lock off again to reactivate the buttons. Once you have finished using the washer, reactivate the child lock again before switching the power off as above.

The feature can also be used when using the delayed start feature, but needs to be set after pressing the START/PAUSE button.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

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.

The e in the 'C on e' message is nothing. the 'C on' means that the child lock is on. To turn the child lock off simply press the 'Quick Wash'and 'Anti-creasing' function buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. The display will show 'C off' you can then change your programs or cancel the wash altogether by pushing the start/pause button for 3 secs. Hope this helped!

Child lock light stays on - & cant start mc programmes


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!

Press and hold the two buttons quick wash and anti crease or
pre wash and extra rinse for 4-5 seconds ...Note the pre wash blinking light will go off and your machine will be ready to use again. the pre-wash blinking light indicates that the child lock has been activated......
