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, . On a 6Kg machine, , 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.

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.

What does CL mean?

If this is an LG washer, it means the "child lock" function is activated. To disable the child lock, press the "temp" and "options" buttons simultaneously for 3-4 seconds. There will be an illuminated "lock" key symbol that should be lit and go out when the lock is disabled. The lock is to prevent children from changing settings or starting the machine.

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.
