    I have the same problem. The Key symbol keeps flash and the door locks. You can turn the washer off and the door opens but then the washer will not reset.

    If you leave the door open, it beeps and F16 comes on the screen. I dont have the instruction manual for this washer... can anyone help!

Thats the control lock indicator. there should be a button on the control panel you need to hold down to unlock the controls. Im not sure witch one it is but it should indicate on there what on it is. Or look in the owners guid. If it still will not unlock you will possibly need a new control bord.

Hello Community, my Electrolux washing machine has a flashing key symbol, door that won't open, and no cycle will work. I would be very grateful if you could tell me how to solve ?

Hello and welcome to the Fixya Community. Your Child Lock is activated.

When the child lock is activated, there will be a key symbol in the display and all the washing machine buttons will be disabled. To deactivate the child lock, press and hold the start button for three to five seconds. After this time you will hear an audible beep and the key symbol will disappear.

Key symbol appears in the display of your washing machine

Hi, Our washing machine (IFB frond load senetor Aqua) is stuck at function disable Child lock and not not getting reset.it is stuck from yesterday

Look for two key pad buttons with a line with a smiling child face padlock symbol. Press and hold these two buttons until you see or here a response from the washing machine.

On a 8 Kg model, press and hold + and - Change buttons on the right of the LCD screen simultaneously for several seconds? That's the way to toggle the child lock on and off for this IFB model, https://www.amazon.in/IFB-Fully-Automatic-Senator-Aqua-SX/dp/B00LAXLN5C . On a 6Kg machine, https://www.amazon.in/IFB-Fully-Automatic-Diva-Aqua-SX/dp/B071G3B81W/ref=psdc_1380369031_t3_B00LAXLN5C , the appropriate buttons to hold are the Rapid Wash and No Cold. (These are on the right side of the control panel but to the left of the power button.)

Depending on the machine, the time to hold the buttons may be 3 seconds, 5 second or 10 seconds. You should see and hear some response. However, holding the key pad buttons for too long may re-enable the child lock.

I hope this helps. The child lock on most washers remains active even when the power is removed from the machine. This keeps the program from being activated when you clean the control panel or by a child who shouldn't access the machine. If the problem persists, I suggest checking for a problem with the keypad wiring or contacts.

Hi, my front loader washing machine (Bosch Logixx 8 sensitive) has child lock written on the screen and will not start the load. ive tried switching it on and off again but it does nothing. the door is...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

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

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

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.

good luck going forward.

Child lock

Try turning the dial back to off, and then try it again.
Make sure the door is shut properly.
Don't interrupt a prog once it has started., if you do , it will start to do funny things.
