OK you have put the child lock on by accident. Follow the instructions below and this should cancel it for you --
You can lock the washing machine to prevent the functions you have
set from being changed inadvertently.
ON /OFF: Press and hold the $ Start/Reload button for approx. 5
seconds after the start/end of the programme.
Note: The childproof lock can remain activated until you wish to start
the next programme, even after switching off the machine.
Then you can deactivate the childproof lock before the start of the
programme and activate it again as necessary once the programme
has started.
So to make sense of the gobbledegook press and hold the on/off for 5 seconds or more, then switch off using the timer knob and it should be cleared. ie key disappears.
