Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

It depends on the model it could mean the appliance is in a child lock state.

Whats the model number this can be found on the inside of the door.

I'm sure if I paid £16 I woud get an immediate phone call

No thats not the case, it generally takes about 5-10 min for experts to respond.

In terms of the issue, looking at the buttons under the display if you press the 2nd and 3rd buttons from the left together for 5 seconds it should remove the lock. The two buttons in questions should have a key symbol shown under them.

Let me know if LOC is still showing.
