ProblemCauses, Solutions, Tips
Appliance does not start, no indicator lamps are on• Plug is not properly inserted in socket.
• Socket or fuse does not function correctly (use a table lamp or similar appliance to test it).
• the “On/Off” button has not been pressed (if available on your model).
Appliance does not start although “Start/Pause” has been pressed• Door is not properly closed .
• The “Child lock/Lock buttons” feature has been activated Screenshot (5) (if available on your model). To unlock the buttons, push the two buttons marked with the key symbol simultaneously and hold them at least for 3 seconds. The key symbol on the display disappears and the programme can be started.
Appliance stops during the programme, and the “Start/ Pause” light blinks• “Rinse hold” position of the “Variable spin” button is activated, and the “Rinse hold” symbol Screenshot (7) lights up in the programme sequence indicator. Press the “Start/Pause” button to start the drain programme.
• Programme has been changed - reselect desired programme and press “Start/Pause”.
• Programme has been interrupted and eventually door has been opened - close door and restart programme by pressing “Start/Pause”.
• The appliance’s safety system has been activated.
• Water tap is not opened or water inlet hose is kinked or blocked (“Water tap closed” indication lights up).
Detergent dispenser contains residues from detergent and/or additives• Separator in main wash chamber is not correctly installed or not adapted to use of powder and liquid detergent.
• Water entering is not enough; the mesh filters of the water supply could be blocked.
Appliance vibrates during spin cycle• Transport bolts have not been removed; before using the washing machine, it is imperative that the transport bolts are removed.
• Appliance is not level / not standing firmly on all four feet.
Final spin results are poorThe appliance has an imbalance detection and correction system. If individual heavy items are loaded (e.g. bathrobes), this system may reduce the spin speed automatically or even interrupt the spin completely in order to protect the washing machine.
• Heavy item(s) prevented spinning; add smaller articles of laundry and repeat spin cycle.
• Excessive foam formation prevented spinning; select and start “Rinse & Spin” programme. Avoid excessive detergent dosing.
• “Variable spin” button has been set to a low spin speed.
Detergent residues on laundry after washWhitish residues on dark fabrics are caused by insoluble compounds used in phosphate-free powder detergents.
- avoid overdosing of detergent
- use liquid detergent
- select “Intensive Rinse” option if possible
- brush out the fabric
Programme time initially displayed is lengthened / shortened by a period of time (only for appliances having a display which indicates the remaining programme time)Normal capacity of the appliance to adapt to factors that can have an effect on the wash programme time, e.g.: Excess of foam formation, load imbalance due to heavy items of laundry, prolonged heating time resulting from reduced inlet water temperature.
Due to such influences, the programme time is recalculated and updated if necessary. On the display, an animation appears during such update periods.
The washing machine is at a standstill for several minutes in the middle of a running programme; the wash programme seems not to proceedNormal function of the washing machine used for optimizing the rinse phase. One reason for such a pause can be that you might have used too much detergent; the washing machine automatically interrupts the programme to have the foam reduced. This standstill may be repeated several times until the foam reduction is sufficient to continue the wash cycle.
Programme duration is considerably longer or shorter as indicated in the “programme chart” or on the display (if available)Normal function of the washing machine to adapt to factors that can have an effect on the programme duration, like excessive foam formation, load unbalance due to heavy laundry items, prolonged heating time resulting from low inlet water temperature etc.. Moreover, the sensing system of the washing machine adapts the programme duration to the size of the wash load. Depending on these factors, the duration is recalculated during the programme and updated if necessary; during such periods, an animation appears on the display (if available). For small loads, the programme time indicated in the “programme chart” may be reduced by up to 50%.
