    Sorry, without looking at the console myself I forget exactly which button(s) need to be pressed to remove the control lock.

    Have you tried unplugging the machine for a few minutes?

    This will sometimes reset the machine's console.

    Please post the model number and I'll try to help you out further if you need it.

You should be able to unlock the control lock by holding the "end of cycle" signal for 3 seconds or until the "control locked" status light turns off.

If that doesn't work, please post your model number.

I accidentally set cycle to Self Clean instead of Spin & Drain and pushed Start button. Trying to reset to correct cycle. Have just moved and don't have manual on hand.

Most machines will reset if you press the stop button or otherwise end the cycle. If all else fails, un-plug the machine, wait a few minutes and plug it in. Otherwise, just let the Self Clean cycle finish.

Hoover electron 520 manual

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It's a shame I cannot answer all 3 of your entries at the same time!

I'm so sorry but this forum does not, nor is in a position to, supply any type of manual (service or otherwise), parts list, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

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

Do you have to pay if the advice received failed to fix the problem?

If you reject a premium answer you don't pay. You only pay if you formally accept a solution or if you take no further action in which case it's eventually assumed that you had a satisfactory answer.

This question is in the free section, so you don't pay either way

How u use


Sorry but questions are very difficult for anyone to answer without the make and model of the washing machine being stated in the title.!

However- to obtain a manual you type into your search engine the make followed by washer manual like this-
bosch washer manual
and you should then be presented by sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay.
Hope this helps you and you are successful,

4. specific training, tools, or equipment are required to avoid injury or death...
5. the Experts that are online simply don't have the resources to answer your question fully...
Please feel free to re-work your question if you feel one of these may be the reason.

How long before someone answers my posted question; I thought that I would be chatting live with someone.

You only get to chat live with someone if you pay for the service, otherwise it is left up to indvidual experts to choose whether to respond to your query or not.
You need to select an expert from the list, and go from there.

Miele washing machine w703 not working

check the outlet for power. Otherwise the ECU is likely failed.

Check your service manual inside the chassis for troubleshooting.

$20.. does that include even if I only want to know where I can get a manual for my washer?

your money goes to any question we can answer, if you choose a direct talking connection.
no i dont think you are going to find a manual for any unit over a few years old. most of the time their are only available for 2-3 years.
what we here can help with is any question you have about your washer. go ahead and post your question here for free and then if you want a faster or more direct answer then you can choose the pay option.
i bet you will find enough good answers for free, so give us here a try with you troubles.
