Simply cancelling an error code will only see it return if there’s a fault that hasn’t been fixed. However, once fixed, some AEG washing machines can apparently still display the error code until reset. This is only a problem if you’ve fixed the fault yourself because clearly any engineer would do this for you.
Looking into this for a Washerhelp user recently I found that the following procedure may work with some (older?) Lavamat models –
You have to run the “test” cycle. With the switch in the off position, hold in the Pre wash & soak button and then turn the rotary knob to gentle (or short) spin. Presumably this should run a short test sequence and clear the error.
His reply was “.. the instructions you gave were correct, but to reset my machine I had to hold the same 2 buttons but turn the rotary knob clockwise to the Energy Saving position”.
