Good Evening

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.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

This error message E17 means that your water supply is taking too long to fill it. Please check that your faucet is turned on. If it is turned up far and the water supply is OK, it may be that the level switch in the device is blocked or defective. The error message E34 means that your door is not closed or cannot close. Is your faucet ok?

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
With best regards,
