  • Make sure that the water tap is not clogged.
  • Make sure that the inlet hose has no kinks, damages or bends.
  • Make sure that the connection of the water inlet hose is correct.
  • Make sure that the filter of the inlet hose and the filter of the valve are not clogged. Refer to ‘Care and cleaning’.

Problem: The appliance fills with water and drains immediately

Possible solution: Make sure that the drain hose is in the correct position. The hose may be positioned too low. Refer to ‘Installation instruction’.

Problem: The appliance does not drain the water.

Possible solution:

  • Make sure that the sink spigot is not clogged.
  • Make sure that the drain hose has no kinks or bends.
  • Make sure that the drain filter is not clogged. Clean the filter, if necessary. Refer to ‘Care and cleaning’.

  • Set the drain programme if you set a programme without drain phase.
  • Set the drain programme if you set an option which ends with water in the tub.

Problem: The spin phase does not operate or the washing cycle lasts longer than usual.

Possible solution:

  • Set the spin programme.
  • Make sure that the drain filter is not clogged. Clean the filter, if necessary. Refer to ‘Care and cleaning’.
  • Adjust manually the items in the tub and start the spin phase again. This problem may be caused by balance problems.

  • Make sure that the packaging and/or the transit bolts are removed. Refer to ‘Installation instruction’.
  • Add more laundry in the drum. The load may be too small.

Problem: The programme duration increases or decreases during programme execution

Possible solution: The ProSense function is able to adjust the programme duration according to the type and the laundry load size. Refer to ‘The ProSense load detection’ in ‘Daily Use’ chapter.

Problem: The washing results are not satisfactory.

Possible solution:

  • Increase the detergent quantity or use a different detergent.
  • Use special products to remove the stubborn stains before you wash the laundry.
  • Make sure that you set the correct temperature.
  • Decrease the laundry load

Problem: Too much foam in the drum during the washing cycle.

Possible solution: Reduce the quantity of detergent.

Problem: After the washing cycle, there are some detergent residues in the dispenser drawer.

Possible solution:

  • Make sure that the flap is in the correct position (UP for powder detergent – DOWN for liquid detergent).
  • Make sure you have used the detergent dispenser according the indications given in this user manual.

After the check, activate the appliance. The programme continues from the point of interruption. If the problem occurs again, contact the Authorised Service Centre. If the display shows other alarm codes. Deactivate and activate the appliance. If the problem continues, contact the Authorised Service Centre.
