Question about Smeg WDI12 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Smeg Washing machine

Hello, My WDI12c Smeg washer dryer shows up error code E05 and beeps. This happens about 5 minutes after I put it to a wash cycle. Interestingly if I move it to a program with prewash it will prewash and then stop. I have checked the hoses and filters they are fine. Any help would be appreciated.

This happened to us before and we had to actually reset the unit. I had to call the tech support and they walked me through the process.

Thank you. I ran a 2 and 3 wash (60 and 40 degree wash). It allowed me to put it onto a rinse/spin/cycle but it didn't allow the wash.

Smeg washer/dryer not filling

Check the pressure switch, aka water level switch. If this isn't the problem, it may be the water valve.
