Siemans Washing Machine E 12.46 - I have just loaded machine;

This answer was rated:

Siemans Washing Machine E 12.46 - I have just loaded machine; closed the door but when a programme is selected the machine bleeps and their is a flashing key in the display? Any ideas would be most welcome please.

Child lock has been accidentally enabled.

The most common method used is to press and hold the start button until the key symbol goes out.
You'll then be able to use the machine again.

If this doesn't work, let me know the E-Nr number from the label in the door recess and I'll advise on your appliance.

Hope this helps
