How can I turn off the 3 second lock that I accidently

Customer Question
How can I turn...

How can I turn off the 3 second lock that I accidently pushed. I can't get the washing machine to start because of the lock button.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is a Maxima Maytag extra big. It's maybe 5 years old I can't find my manual. Do you need a model number?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

The machine doesn't need repair I just need to unlock the machine so it will start.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

This is a 4.5 maxima machine. The 3 second lock control button is on the right hand side near the top.
