HEre's a link to Smeg's web site with all the error codes:

The only problem is that the code doesn't really tell you a lot though apart from it's probably not draining properly. Does any one have any ideas for E06?

    Ok so basically the issue is either that the filter at the front bottom has some cak in it. if you have cleaneed this then remove the outlet pipe at the back and run water through it. If that works ok then the only thing left is the pump. I've been informaed by Smeg that it would probably mean a replacement pump is needed. One thing to try after cleaning the pipes and filter is to get a low level bucket and put the end of the outlet pipe into it to let the water drain off. So long as the bucket is at a low level it will allow the machine to drain off. Then try switching the machine off for a few mins, then back on and running another cycle. Last thing to check is that there is no blockage inside the machine where the water emptys through the hole in the rubber at the front. If none of that works then have a chat to SMEG support at this page:

    Hope this helps

Error 4 on my smeg washer, not doing any programmes only rinse

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Smeg Error 4 states 'NTC- water in, short circuit or interrupted'.???
'NTC' stands for 'Negative Temperature Co-efficient' or water temperature thermostat to you and me!
Might be worth trying the following in case the thermostat is just stuck.

One way of hopefully getting around the problem is first to ensure the washer is empty then pour the contents of a boiling kettle into it. That can sometimes kick the device into correct action. It's worth a try anyway before having to call in the repair man ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

stick some neoprene-type patches on the inside of the body either side of the drum- you'll see where from the wear marks. Use super-glue to ensure lasting satisfaction.

Try turning power off, unscrewing the back panel of the machine and removing, reaching inside and giving the wheel which looks like a waterwheel (has 'fans') a couple of turns. This is the pump and sometimes small particles jam the wheel. Turn the power back on and if still in mid-cycle should resume and finish.
