I have a Bosch Excel washer dryer which now has a key symbol in the window. The manual has been lost in a house move. Please remind me how to get the machine going again.
Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

No, I am afraid I can't. It is not visible.
Hi Patrricia

Oh boy !!
Unfortunately there are literally hundreds of variations f these machines.

Thi is one of the most common ways, so try this

Press and hold the start button for about 5 seconds

Does this turn it off. if not let me know what buttons you have

In the meantime,

Can I ask you to take a moment and rate my responses so far? Please use the smiley faces which you should now see. Please remember you are rating me personally, not the website or the problems you have had with this machine.
This will not close your question and you can still come back to me if you need more help
