Resolution:

1. Check if the door is properly closed

Make sure that the laundry is not trapped between the appliance door and rubber seal.

2. Reset the appliance

Remove the plug from the socket, wait 30 seconds and then plug it in again (The same result may be achieved by using the safety switch).
After plugging in the appliance, switch it on and select a program.
3. Contact an Authorized Service Centre

If the above suggestions did not solve the problem, we recommend requesting a visit by a service engineer.

NOTE: Depending on the problem, you may be charged for a service visit by an engineer, even during the warranty period.
Make a note of the reported error code and quote it when you request an engineer. This will not solve your problem, but it will help our engineer identify the cause of the problem.

Warning: We do not recommend using the product until the problem has been completely fixed. Unplug the product and do not plug it in again until you are certain that it is OK to do so.
