The child lock on my smart drum lg washing machine is on how doi turn it off please

To TURN OFF CHILD LOCK on your LG washer, press and hold the CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds. The washer should now have CHILD LOCK mode DISABLED and all buttons will function properly.

PLEASE NOTE: ON other newer LG front load washing machines hold the PREWASH/CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn CHILD LOCK OFF.

Has the sound changed? The door lock assemble can be loud and sound like its faulty. If the washer completes cycles, then door lock is working correctly. One thing to check is the strike on the door. Look for anything that is odd or doesn't look right. A damaged strike can create extra noise. Good luck!

If the drain pump/alve has worked and the water has drained off the machine then you can reset the door switch by pushing the safety lever down to release the lock on the door .
Now this can be done only if you can observe very carefully using a good position and light to locate the door lock and release lock lever from the program controller.
Once this is done , check the program without clothes on a low wash and see if the door jams or if this is a fault on the program controller unit.

Remove the plug and see if the program can be activated. If not try to reset the program, if there is a failure to shut off the door lock it is possible that the program controller has failed.
If so you will need to first of all drain off the water in the tub by removing the drain hose. Please make sure that the washer is kept out to drain or there could be flooding inyour room. Once the water has drained use a long head screw driver to manually release the lock of the door.
You might have to use agood light to see the latch to release the lock.

End light flashes four times/sound signals too, after selecting any program, machine will not start...any ideas?


This is most often a problem with the door lock. However, can you provide the exact make and model of the machine and let me know if the door is locked when it refuses to activate the program.

Also try disconnecting or tripping the power to the machine for 30 minutes - reconnect and see if it starts the wash.

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.
