Do you have a model number so I can better assist you? It would be on a sticker just inside the door way.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. The machine is in Portugal and I am in California.

OK well Commands are blocked means that your control lock is engaged. You should just need to press and hold the control lock button on the control panel for 5 seconds to unlock the control panel. Since you don't have the model number I can't tell you where that button is but it's one of the buttons on the control panel.
