Some types of alarm may occur on the display:

The alarms appear with the flashing red indicator light in the START/PAUSE button and, at the same time, on the display.


The alarms displayed are listed below:

  • E10 – Water fill problems (the tap is closed).
  • E20 – Draining problems (the filter is dirty).
  • E40 – Problems with the door (is the door open?).

These alarms may be indicated by a flashing red LED in the START/PAUSE button and with a single or several LEDs.

These alarms (for both versions) can be resolved immediately.


The following alarms (for both versions) cannot be resolved immediately.

  • EF0 – Water leakage (Aqua Control system).
  • EH0 – Connection voltage or frequency is outside the normal values.

These alarms are displayed to the user, but technical assistance may be required to resolve them.

If the above suggestions do not solve the issue, we recommend requesting a visit by a service engineer.
