Hi

 

Ok try this turn the dial to the reset then turn one click clockwise.

Then turn the washer off

Then press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it.

Hi

 

Sorry for the delay. The E42 is the error code we was looking for.

 

This error code is something to do with the door lock.

Open the door and remove the plastic clamp around the seal and then unlip the door seal.

 

From there remove the 2 screws holding the door lock on and pull the lock through the port hole.

 

Remove the plastic cover over the wiring and pull the wiring block of the door lock and see if that's burnt out. If so then you need to retag the wires and replace the door lock and this should cure it.

 

If the wiring is ok then its proberly just a faulty lock which you need to replaced. Now sometimes it can be the control board at fault here but most of the time for this error code its the door lock or wiring to the lock.

 

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
