Something not working
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without calling out an engineer. The dishwasher is fitted with a number of alarm systems which can help you to quickly determine the cause of any problems such as the dishwasher will not start or stops during operation, all push buttons are inoperative except for the On/Off push button or the indicator light of the programme underway and one or more of the phase indicator lights (washing, drying, end of programme) are flashing. Press the On/off push button to switch off the dishwasher and carry out the following suggested corrective actions listed below. Once the checks have been carried out switch on the dishwasher and start a washing programme, if the fault code reappears, contact your local Service Force Centre.
