Something Not Working
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without
calling out an engineer. Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, please carry out the checks listed
below.
IMPORTANT: if you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation, a charge will be made even if the appliance is under guarantee.
During machine operation it is possible that one of the following alarm codes appears on the display:
- E10 : problem with the water supply
- E20 : problem with water draining
- E40 : door open
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button 
to restart the programme. If after all
checks, the problem persists, contact your local Service Force Centre.
Symptom
The machine does not start
Possible causes
The door has not been closed. (E40)
The plug is not properly inserted in the power socket.
There is no supply at the socket.
The main fuse or the fuse in the plug has blown.
The START/PAUSE button has not been depressed.
The DELAY START option has been selected.
The machine does not fill
The water tap is closed. (E10)
The filter in the inlet hose is blocked. (E10)
The inlet hose may be squashed or kinked. (E10)
The door has not been closed. (E40)
The machine fills then empties
immediately
The end of the drain hose is too low.  
The end of the drain hose is submerged in water.
There is no vent in the end of the drain hose.
The machine does not empty and/or
does not spin
The drain hose may be squashed or kinked. (E20)
The NIGHT WASH option has been selected.
The drain pump may be blocked. (E20)
The drain hose extension, if fitted, is not correct. Follow the
instructions for connecting to the waste.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
The wash load is unbalanced: redistribute the clothes inside the drum to
allow the machine to spin.
There is water on the floor
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used (creates too
much foam).
Check whether there are any leaks from the inlet hose fittings. It is not
always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose; check to see if
it is damp.
The drain hose may be damaged or not securely positioned.
The detergent dispenser drawer or recess is clogged.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
Unsatisfactory washing results
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used. An
insufficient amount of detergent leaves the laundry looking grey and
causes lime scale to form.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing
The correct wash programme/temperature has not been selected.
Too much laundry has been placed in the drum.
