  • Now you have to wait a little until the safety circuit will release the door lock. This circuit is designed to prevent one engages in a trailing drum. It is a time delay before you can open the door. This delay always takes place when the door was locked times, even if the machine is not used.

Final spin results are poor.

Issue:

  • If the laundry is still too wet at the end of the cycle, add smaller articles of laundry and repeat the spin cycle.

If your washing machine has a time display: the programme time initially displayed is lengthened / shortened by a period of time:

Issue:
This is a normal capacity of the washing machine to adapt to factors that can have an effect on the wash programme time, e.g.:
  • excess foam formation;
  • load imbalance due to heavy items of laundry;
  • prolonged heating time due to reduced inlet water temperature;
Because of influences like these, the time remaining in the programme run is recalculated, and updated if necessary. In addition, during the filling phase, the washing machine determines the load and if necessary adjusts the initial programme time displayed accordingly. During such update periods, an animation appears on the time display.
