Customer Question
I have an Electrolux...

I have an Electrolux WAshing machine (EIFLS20QS) - it is saying "child lock" in the screen. I don't know how to get it off and start the wash?? HELP!! Thanks

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Electrolux is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 3 months old. The book says: EIFLS20Qs - is that not the model? where do I find the model?

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

What work? I just want to know how to turn off the indicator for "child lock?"

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

To unlock the controls, press prewash and fresh rinse at the same time and hold until the [] indicator is no longer lit.
