My washing machine is beeping and showing the key light and not turning on. The door opens though but it seems to be saying its locked!? It doesn't show the cycle time either. How can i get it to go...
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Bosch, but you didn't specify the model number. It sounds like the "child lock" selection has been activated, either intentional or accidental.
To reset it on many Bosch it is as follows...(if this fails, please provide your model number)
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.
**Many times you can also push and hold the start key for several seconds and this too will deactivate the selection...on various models**
Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly and a short testimony is also appreciated.
Thank you for choosing FixYa. I'll need to watch for your reply if that doesn't work or before moving forward.
