How do I switch the child lock on my Samsung washing machine on and off?

Child lock on Samsung washing machines allows you to lock the buttons so that your selected cycle can't be changed. When child lock is enabed, all of the buttons on the control panel will be locked except for the power button and an icon will appear on the display.
