Is there a way to reset the error module? (other than the hold two buttons down and turn knob to the left reset)
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 10 months ago.

1. Set the knob to off.

2. Hold down both the Spin Selector button and the Allergy Rinse button simultaneously.

3. While holding these two buttons down, rotate the knob one click to the left, to the “cold” position.

4. At that point, the display will show a diagnostic code and the unit will enter a self-test mode.

Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 10 months ago.
