Good afternoon Barbara,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

You will have to press and hold the START button for around 10 seconds to unlock the control.

If that won't help then please provide its complete model number (from the label/rating plate located inside the door).

Sorry, I am not available for phone calls however, I am happy to help via chat.

If someone else is available for calls, they will call you.

That should help, if that won't help then please press and hold the RPM and FINISHED IN buttons together for around 10 seconds.

If the issue is still there then please get back with its complete model number (starts with E nr).

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.

I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you.
