If theres an 0 in the display then it means its finished its cycle.

But as you say you cannot change anything then it sounds like the child lock is activated.

Try this and see what happens.

Press and hold the temperture button and the spin button together at the same time for about 5 seconds and see what happens from there.

Let me know how it goes.
