FLASHING CHILD LOCK SIGN AND LOW WATER PRESSURE SIGN

No matter which program I select I just get 2 beeps and a flashing key symbol on the screen.
I read that this is the child lock and to depress the start button for 4 seconds to clear the key symbol.
This hasn't worked.

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the machine ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and just happened to see that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video on youtube which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video (direct drive washer repair) made it possible for me to do my own repair. You probably don't have any idea of the wonderful help you can get from youtube videos. Your first stop should be at youtube. Just search for the help you need. You could search for "clothes dryer repair" or "clothes washer repair" or "dishwasher repair". If you are not able to view and/or download the videos, or after you've seen all you want to see, I suggest you go directly to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers, dryers. and dishwashers as well as other appliances. Another excellent site is www.acmehowto.com If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart these youtube videos are wonderful help. I was so impressed with them that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about the videos. If you look at the back of your top load washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove, which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video (direct drive washer repair) is just what you need. After you've seen all the appropiate videos, or if you have a belt drive washer, you will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair nformation on most washers and dryers, dishwashers and many other household appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Another excellent site for DIY help is www.acmehowto.com Don't worry about the timer on a washer, they hardly ever go bad. I realize I haven't solved your problem for you, but I hope I have sent you where you can get help to solve the problem. Good luck with it.

Flashing key


Sounds like have inadvertently activated the child lock, select any program and press and hold the start button until the key light goes off approx 5-10secs. If this does not work please repost with model number as with some bosch models it is a different button you need to hold. (may be the time delay)

My machine show a 01 and a flashing key I try to do hold a button for 5 sec to deactivate but time tab it's not reacting with at is the prob


Your washer is in the "child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program. Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. If nothing is pressed within 10 seconds.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display. Once you see that in the display, press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display. Finally by pressing the start/pause button the key symbol should disappear - confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Pl click if helped.

The access door will not open, it is showing the locked symbol in the window


Your problem is either one of the 2 cases below.

1. Door Locked Indicator...'Keyhole' symbol
The 'Keyhole' symbol will illuminate 2 seconds after you have
pressed the 'START/CANCEL' button and will remain lit
throughout the wash programme.
The 'Keyhole' symbol will be flashing at the end of the
programme to indicate that the door is still locked. When the
symbol goes off you will hear a bleep and the door can then
be opened.

2. If the machine has been child locked, deactivate this feature by pressing and holding in the 'child lock' button for 2 seconds.You will hear a beep and the child lock symbol will go out,allowing you to use the machine normally.

Washing machine has stopped and a symbol of a key is flashing. Door will not open and no program will work


The key and flashing = child lock.

To get rid of this - turn to normal setting, press the power switch and keep pressing for several seconds. The symbol should disappear and the beeping should stop.

How can i turn off key symbol


Hello Lucy and welcome to Fixya.

As far as the "signal" activation or de-activation goes, it should be performed before starting a load of laundry and it is as follow's... 1) Turn the program selector to any program as you would doing laundry. Add your items... 2) When you close the door the "start/pause" light flashes... 3) Press the "menu" button until the signal indicator is displayed and flashes ( a small speaker symbol ) as does the start/pause light. If no buttons are pressed within 10 seconds, the current setting will be saved. 4) Press the "select" button until the desired volume or "off" is reached/displayed. 5) Press the "start/pause" button so the program starts and the setting is saved after the cycle has completed. As for the "key" symbol, your washer has a "child lock" program and the symbol indicates it has been activated.

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.

Child lock flashing


Hello Lynn, Welcome to fixya. The key symbol indicates the washer has somehow been placed in the "child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program to over-ride it. Here's what to do 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. That is the procedure for the child lock function on your Bosch washer and should solve your problem. 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. macmarkus :)

There is a key symbol and I cannot start my next load


Hello and welcome to Fixya.

You`re likely right on about inadvertently locking out the controls. Your washer has a "child lock" program and I suspect that has been activated.

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.

If this indeed was the issue preventing you from operating the washer you should now be free to select any cycle and carry on.

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.
