If you want to activate or deactivate the Child Lock function, hold down the Temp and Rinse buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.
When an error occurs, hold down the Spin and Option buttons at the same time for 3 seconds to run the Smart Check function.
Alternatively, the Smart Check function can be run if no button is pressed after the washing machine is turned on.
This information, you can find in your user manual...
Please let me know the results following you trying these two scenarios
