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. Hold the reset button in for 15 seconds to reset the test cycle
