Follow the procedure below and let me know the result..


  • Power-ON the Dishwasher while pushing and holding the Programs Selection Key or P1.
  • Release the held Key and push it again 4 times in sequence within 4 seconds.
  • A buzzing sound and ALL LEDs being turned ON, confirm that the Self-diagnosis was correctly engaged.

If present, it's now displayed the last ERROR code that was stored in memory: if a DIGIT display is present, the ERROR is shown on it. Otherwise, ALL Programs LEDs flash together at 1 Hz (1 time per second), for a number of times corresponding to the ERROR number.

The displaying of the ERROR is repeated after a 3" pause, until it's pushed the Programs Key or the P1 Key (ERROR reset).
