There are no buttons that say Cancel/Drain on it. There is a small line under the buttons that says Cancel/Drain, you have to press two cycle buttons and that activates the cancel drain. All Bosch units are like this. How many buttons are there on your machine?

ANDY - THERE ARESIX SMALL BUTTONS THAT SAY AS FOLLOWS:

Vario speed - Half Load - Intensive Zone.

+ Start in hr - then just a minus sign - Then Hygiene.

I AM SORRY THERE IS NO SMALL LINE UNDER BUTTONS THAT SAY CANCEL/DRAIN.

You would have to be looking at the wrong model.

Please try again. Trish.

Ok, I found your manual. I did not realize that you have a Bosch UK unit. I found the manual and I think we can get this fixed. I need to know which two numbers after the model, it should be the model you gave / __ I need this number because there are some differences in programming for the unit.

No Andy, there are no numbers after the model No. - It's a LIFESTYLE ****

that's all it has

Sorry I didn't know it was a UK model, they don't tell you this when you purchase these items.

Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 6 years ago

Here is a link to all the SMU68MO5AU models there is a number as you can see how many series there are at the manual link. I have checked a few of them and there are differences for the programming. Check this link out.

At the link you can go to instruction manuals and type in the first 5 characters of your model to see all of them. For some reason the link will not take you directly to the list. But here is the list with links as you can see there are a lot of SMU68M05AU models with specific serial codes
