|The child lock has been activated.||Deactivate the child lock. For more information on how to do this click here.|
|The door is not locked properly.||Close the door properly until you can hear an audible click. An overloaded washing machine drum may be preventing the door from being closed properly. For more information on how to fill your washing machine correctly click here. Also check whether an item of washing is jammed between the door and the housing.|
|The start button is held down too short or too long.||To start a programme, you will need to press and hold the start button slightly longer than the other buttons on the washing machine, appoximately 1 to 2 seconds. A brief press will not be sufficient. If the button is held down too long, a double audible beep will be heard and the washing machine will not start. This prevents a programme from being started through any accidental contact with the start button.|
