Cannot turn child lock off on my Bosch Series 8 front loader.

Have tried holding the Finished in button for 3-5 seconds also tried the start/reload button for 3-5 seconds but the child lock stays on. Also tried turning it off at the wall. Any other suggestions to get it to turn off?

SOURCE: Can't start the dishwasher, lock button is lit up.

Hello Albert, On the Jenn-Air dishwasher you have, you have to hold down the "Heated Dry" button for 3-5 seconds to unlock the control panel.

This should unlock the controls so you can again use the dishwasher normally.

Since you''re likely going to have this dishwasher for some time, I've included a link where you can download a free owner's manual for it.

I would print out a copy for your future use and reference. I also have a file on my computer that I title "Home Appliances and Equipment" which is where I download and save an electronic copy so I always have a backup copy saved, since manuals aren't always readily available on the web, as the appliances get older.

http://www.jennair.com/assets/product/6_920374_A.PDF

The info on locking and unlocking the dishwasher can be found on page 13 of the manual.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Child lock blinking on a Kitchenaid ultima diswasher.

Try holding the E.S. button down for 30 seconds. Does not work, you need an Electronic control assembly which can be ordered online from Repair clinic .com for $146 for your model plus shipping. This is apparently a common problem with Kitchenaid dishwashers. Just repaired one the other day. Tried everything, but as soon as the new Electronic control assembly was installed, everything was Okay. This is an easy repair for anyone who is handy at all. Please shut off power to the dishwasher by switching the breaker off or removing the fuse.

How do I turn the child lock off on Bosch series 8


Which model do you have? On the front-loading washing machine, WAW28790IN and the WAW24440IN, press and hold the Ready in +/- button for 3+ seconds to toggle the child lock on and off. For the WAW28460AU, press and hold the Finished In +/- button for the 3+ seconds. On all of these models, this button is below the LCD panel on the right hand side. The directions for engaging the child lock are on the button or just below it in a much smaller font than the primary feature of the button.

I found most of the serie 8 ovens have a dedicated button for the control panel lock. On the HRG6769S6B, press and hold the button with the key icon (the middle button to the left of the start/stop button) for 4+ seconds to toggle the child lock on and off. For the HBG672BS1B, this button is the lower button to the right of the start/stop button. Again press and hold for 4+ seconds.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number if you need more information about the control panel/child lock for your specific appliance.

The child lock in on on my Bosch classixx 6 1200. I don't know how to disengage it


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Bosch classixx and the "child lock" selection has been activated, either intentional or accidental.


To reset it is as follows...

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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

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.

Front loader dryer control lock is on how do i get it off


The control lock is a feature you can turn on so someone can't change your settings after you start a wash, or a child can't start up the washer on their own if the lock is on. There is a subscript under one the option buttons on the dryer that says Control Lock Hold for 3 seconds. Hold the button in for 3 seconds or so and the lock should turn off. This is a common issue because most do not use this feature therefore do not know about it. If this doesn't do the trick the dryer has a control problem. Good luck.
Thank you
