Tumble dryer displays error message E40

If the E40 error message appears on the tumble dryer’s display after pressing the start button, check if the door is properly closed. If the door is closed and the error message is still displayed, it is a software problem.

Try resetting the appliance: 
  1. Remove the plug from the socket, wait 30 seconds and then plug it in again (The same result may be achieved by using the safety switch). 
  2. After plugging in the appliance, switch it on and select a program.

If an error message appears on the display, we recommend contacting an Authorized Service Center.
