Bosch Excell 7 washing machine,not switching on, dispalying

This answer was rated:

Bosch Excell 7 washing machine,not switching on, dispalying a key and something that looks like 1/2 a lemon , but may be the tub. Any ideas?
The child lock is activated. Try this to turn it off
Press and hold the start button for several seconds and see if the key sign goes off.
If it doesn't then can you post the model number so I know which machine you have and I can then find the correct way to turn it off.
The above method is the most common so that's why I said this first.
Let me know how it goes.

Excellent, but probably only worth £25.00. But it has been raining all week and I have 2 baskets full so very grateful. Part5icularly with speed of reply. I have no idea how the child lock got switched on.

Thank you.


Good to hear you sorted it and thanks for letting me know.

This can get turn on by cleaning or just pressing the start button to long.

Many thanks.
