We have a Bosch xx6 1200 Express. We tried to start it but above ready in 55 minutes box a key symbol has appeared. Machine never gone wrong before
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It was bought in March 2010 other reference WAE24364
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: What is the problem
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: We simply put items to be washed in machine. Switched it on and refused to start. Key symbol appeared


If you see the key sign lit up then this is just the childlock thats activated.

To turn it off all you need to do is press and hold the start button for several seconds and it will turn the key sign off.

Once thats off you can then use the washer as normal from there.

Try that and see how it goes and let me know.
