I suspect the electronics will need to be "hard reset" by turning power off at the mains for at least 4 hours. Does the behavior change after a power cycle?

I did a P4 wash but it has returned to 188 on display again
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

How long sis it wash for before the 188 displayed? Was the water hot and steamy?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the p4 wash went for the full 99 min cycle and then dried the dishes... But then the 188 was displayed again and I could not select another programme again.
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

It sounds like the main electronic control will need to be replaced.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Really, is that very expensive?
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

I am not able to locate any parts for your machine so I can't give you an idea what it may cost.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok thanks for that info anyway!
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

You bet, thank you.
