Please follow the instruction below and let me know what you find:
It is possible to display the last three memorised alarms in the FLASH memory of the electronic board:
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Press and hold down START/PAUSE button and the nearest option button.
3. Holding down both buttons, switch the appliance on by turning the programme selector by one position clockwise.
4. Continue to hold down the buttons till the LEDs and the symbols begin to flash (at least 2 seconds).
In the first position, the operation of the buttons and the relative LEDs is checked; turning the selector knob clockwise the diagnostics cycle for the operation of the various components and the alarm reading is activated.
5. Turn the programme selector clockwise to the tenth position. The last alarm is displayed. To display the previous alarms, press sequentially the left button of the START/PAUSE button

I did all that but as I rotated clockwise each program tried to start up so I switched it off and went straight to the program I wanted which was wool. It seems to be working now! Thank you so much! Kate :) :)

Dear ***** I have a problem with the machine again. I did what we did before but it's not working this time
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Hello Kate, I am sorry that you are having a problem with your appliance again...
What is the issue you are having this time round?
Following the previous fault, you neglected to rate the assistance I gave you; for this reason, unless you rate that assistance using the star rating system above, I am reluctant to assist you again.
regards
George
