Telmann washing machine TEL6TL

When Ist cycle begins at filling stage, the machine stops and displays E2
Is this balancing arm? as I have read others have similar problems.
The balance dial on the top left handside of machine registers as balanced.

    the water won't empty out

  • peterwk Mar 05, 2009

    Washer fills then stops beeps and flashes E2. If I click through to spin, the water will drain, but will not spin. Stripped pump, but it was clean, and flushed out bowl. If I switch on and press wash and start the agitator will go for 7 seconds, then the machine will fill up ( to level 6) but stops when level reached and again I get the E2 code. Machine is 2 months out of warranty

Telemann TEL6tl E2 Problem

E2 on screen means the lid is not closing properly and thus not activating the (hidden) switch that prevents the machine from spinning while the lid is up.

The lid switch in this model is not a direct contact switch between lid and switch , but it switches on and off due to a MAGNET embedded in the lid on the left hand side near the front. You will see a small indentation where the magnet SHOULD BE. My magnet had fallen off, so the lid could not activate the operation switch. I had lost the original magnet( about 1cm X 2cm) so glued another into place.

Machine is now fully operational again, and the job cost .78c.

If your magnet is still in place, the E2 fault could lay with the switch itself , which is fixed to the underside of the top casing of the machine near the front right hand side of the lid cavity. The switch measures 1cm X 3cm heavily black tape insulated. Access is gained by popping the 2 X2cm discs at front top of machine and releasing the 2 small philips screws here and a further 2 at the back top of machine. This operation of replacing the switch is best left to an electrician or washing machine specialist.

Hope that helps

    CORRECTION re E2 by Apostle 95

    The magnet in the Telmann TEL6tl is on the RIGHT HAND front side of the clear lid NOT the left as incorrectly written by me earlier. The switch is directly below the magnet ( or its cavity if magnet missing) and the position may change over models.

Hi..Telmann tel6tl displays fault code E3..have you any ideas.. Thanks.


This code (E3) means an error code. That the dishwasher electronic control has detected a condition it needs to check. When you see a code, follow these steps to solve the problem:
  • Press "Stop/Clear" to clear the display and stop the beeping if noted then .
  • Reprogram the Washing Machine.
  • If the code still displays, turn off the power to the Washing Machines at your breaker box and wait five minutes and clean all part (area) that are open to water carefully before turning it back on for operation.
Thanks for using fixya.

You may have 2 defective parts.
First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on.
If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad.
The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch.
Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

you did not mention the type of machine but for top loader the most probable cause of your issue is the door /lid switch that is in need of adjustment as most top loaders will fill with the lid open but cycle cant start or continue when the wash thinks the door is open this is a safety feature

Washing machine wil not fill - tries several times then stops and all lights except 4 go out

That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

Will not move to the next cycle.

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Washing machine wont stop filling up

    check hose to water level switch, if it has had an out of balance situation it can loosen or detach hose. replace hose firmly back on switch or replace hose if that doesn't work.
