My washer dryer is showing that its still locked after i turn it on and onpen the door

You may have locked the machine by accidentally leaning on the buttons. I can't see a proper clear photo of this machine's control panel, but there may be two buttons on the front of the machine with a picture of a lock underneath them (on mine they are marked 'option' and 'extra rinse'). Hold both in at the same time and this will deactivate the lock.

A red padlock symbol is showing on the panel of my WCVH6800 front load washer. I can't change any of the wash settings. How do I fix this?

Here's what the Padlock represents:

Lock Function

You can lock the controls to prevent any selections from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle. children cannot accidentally start the washer by touching pads with this option selected.

To lock the washer, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds (on some models use SIGNAL button). To unlock the washer controls, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The control lock icon on the display will light up when it is on.

NOTE: The POWER button can still be used when the machine is locked.

Key Symbol appearing and cycle wont start

Please see if there is a lock installed into for safety. Press and hold power/start/pause as power is plugged.
Make sure that the door switch is working open and close once again to check as this can also stop the machine from operating.

The water switch to the washer wasnt turn on due to no water going to the washer from the hose it was blinking red H symbol I tried to cancel load to restart and machine stays on and wont start new cycle...

Just unplug the washer and wait a couple of minutes before you plug it back in. That should clear the code and let you get the door open.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

C45072 Kenmore washer will not start. Did one

I've been going crazy with this too. Turns out all you have to do is hold down the "options" & "select" buttons at the same time until the "lock light" (the light just above the "pause/cancel" button) turns off. I guess that's why there is a line under the option/select buttons that have a lock symbol connecting the two.

We had the same problem and this website solved it for us. The child lock is on when the lock symbol light in the lower right of the panel is on. The machine will not start with the light on. If you press the Option and Select buttons together (there is a lock symbol with a line to the two buttons), the lock symbol light will switch between on and off. When it's off, the machine can start. None of this was in the "Use and Care Guide," maybe we lost our manual. But thanks for helping to solve the problem!
