My washing machine Exxcel WAE 28469 UK is showing a key sign

This answer was rated:

My washing machine Exxcel WAE 28469 UK is showing a key sign in the illuminated window and will not 'start' the wash. When I shut the door, it peeps.

The door seems to be shutting OK but it won't start. I've turned it off and on again but no dice. Is this some sort of child lock that my cleaner has triggered by mistake? If so, how do I turn it off and enable the machine again?
Hold the start button in for 5 seconds to unlock the child safety lock. hope this helps, thanks , Bryan
