JA: What's the brand and model of your lighting? How old is it?
Customer: zanussi lindo300
JA: How long has this been going on with your Zanussi lighting? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Just happened with the last wash, we have unplugged mains power then plugged in again but no change.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no


Can you post the model number please as lindo300 is just the range.

The model number will be on a sticker on the inside of the door.

Also can you post a picture of the control panel so i can see whats lit up on there.

Is the orange light that lit is next to the padlock picture?

orange light is next to padlock picture

Ok this is the child lock light.

To turn this off all you need to do is press and hold the temperture button and the spin button together for about 5 seconds or so and that will turn the lock off from there and you can use the washer as normal.

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