What to do if the washing machine display is stuck?
If your washing machine display is stuck and the knob won't select a different cycle, it is possible that the child lock is on.
Child lock is an option in the washing machine that allows you to prevent accidental touch of the washing machine buttonsl. As the washing machine is the same height of children, they can play on the buttons that will affect the washing machine's operation.
If the washing machine's child lock icon is on or flashing., it means that the child lock is on.
Turning off the child lock will usually solve the issue.
To activate/deactivate the child lock, there are ways to do it:
•Press on Temperature + Spin button for 3 seconds at the same time.
•Press Rinse + spin button for 3 seconds at the same time.
•Press - and + for 3 seconds at the same time.
Note: Please refer to your user manual on what method you can activate or deactivate the child lock in your washing machine.
Note: If the lock sign is always on in your Samsung Washing machine display, you may need to unplug the washer from the power source for 60 seconds, and then try again.
