Question about Washing Machines
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.

Changing the door lock is one of the easiest things to do in a washing machine. Just note which wires go where & get a new door switch.

SOURCE: Hi, my front loader washing
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.
