Good Morning

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.

The telephone service is provided automatically by the system, you only have to accept it when you need it.

Unfortunately, I cannot make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you wish. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.

I'm sorry you faced this problem!

If such an error message appears, the aqua stop is usually triggered. At the bottom there is a float switch which triggers an aqua stop in the event of a leak. Please check the bottom of the floor for leaks or water stains. To do this, you usually have to open the rectangular cover underneath the door where you can access the floor pan. If everything should be dry, the drain pump may be defective or blocked. Then you would have to pull out the device once and check everything once.

Please do not hesitate to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!

Sincerely yours,
