N.B Referance to a bleep in the setup procedure is for machines manufactured prior to Spring 2004 (Date codes 27-28)after which date they were deleted from the program.

First Method

  1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and the door is closed,then RESET the dishwasher.
  2. Switch the machine off via the ON/OFF button and wait for 30 seconds

  4. Turn the control knob to program 1 and switch the machine off via the ON/OFF button
  5. Turn the dial to RESET and wait for 30 seconds
  6. Switch the dishwasher ON and you will hear a bleep,
  7. Turn the control knob to program 2 and switch the machine off via the ON/OFF button
  8. Turn the dial to RESET and wait for 30 seconds
  9. Switch the dishwasher ON and you will hear a bleep, LEDs 1 and 4 will be on
  10. If you now select program 1 the short test will begin

If a fault is detected the machine will display a Fault code (which is indicated by flashing LEDs 1 to 4) check it against our data base to find out what it means or if there is no fault the 2nd and 3rd LEDs will flash to indicate the test program has finished

Turn the selector dial to RESET to exit the program


Cancel factory test

On fitting a 100 bit control card it could automatically go into a factory test cycle. The following procedure will eliminate this test cycle. All these actions must be carried out quickly.

  1. Close the door and switch the dishwasher on
  2. Two LEDs will flash, this is to indicate the test cycle has started
  3. Leave the door closed and switch the dishwasher OFF...
  4. Wait for exactly 15 seconds then switch the dishwasher ON
  5. Turn the selector dial to reset and wait untill you hear 3 bleeps.
  6. This has now reset the test cycle and the machine is ready for normal use

Prior to fitting new card

If you think the timer card is faulty, first check the earth efficiency on each of the components, because low earth resistance would cause a number of different errors to show. Amongst them could be:

  • The fact that none of the LEDs light up during a program
  • Any number of different fault codes
  • The inability to reset the factory test cycle on a new card
  • The dishwasher won’t start
