I had flashing lights in my braun tassimo and tried all previous solutions
Cleaned the barcode reader
Seated the water container properly
The problem was down to the flosting magnet in the water container (which was floating when filled)
The magnet had lost its strength somehow, so i held a strong magnet from from a fish tank cleaner at the back whilst the water container was in and it worked perfect
Inside the machine is a sensor which detects the magnet that floats in the water container
I am looking for a new magnet and will keep you informed if it worked when i get one
Good luck from Ash

My problem was the magnet in the water tank had stopped floating so the machine thought it was out of water. Try putting some blu tak or a small object underneath the magnet to make it "float". My tassimo works fine with the blu tak, just have to watch the water level manually from now on.

    If its sticking then remove the rubber capping and clean any debris from the magnet
    If this doesnt work then the plastic surrounding the magnet may be too tight, if you fill your container with boiling water and leave for a minute the plastic becomes slightly softer and can be prized out with a little force ( not too much or you will snap it) also prize out with long screwdriver and be careful not to scald yourself
    Once the magnet floats then empty the boiling water and leave to cool
    If this this doesnt work then your floating magnet may be weak (a magnet can loose its strength if banged a lot)

I had this problem, all lights flashing and nothing happening. Although the float in the water tank seemed OK popping up and down, I took it out and broke it open to find the magnet had corroded due to water leaking in. I placed one of my kids' magnets over the part of the machine that lined up with where the float would be and the lights stopped flashing! So I took a hammer to the magnet so I had just a small piece and wedged it in between the water tank and machine. Works perfect now. You could fashion something else or replace the float if you can get hold of one but this way works fine. I refill my tank using a jug so I don't have to fiddle about with the magnet when trying to put the tank back.

    Thank you for your comment. I was able to break and existing refrigerator clip-magnet and tape it to the side. The coffee maker now works perfectly.

Either you are not seating the water container fully in the back of the machine, or there is something blocking a portion of the bar code reader for the t-disc.

My problem was a small piece of foil that comes from the hole punched in the t-disc - it was laying on top of the glass place for the bar code reader. Once i picked this away - it worked fine.

My zanussi zwg 6141p washing machine is calling water at start of cycle but is not going into drawer to swill out detergent , is also stopping half way with the green light on the start button flashin


Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number.
For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
" E20 " means "No drain water"
" E10 " means "No fill up water"

Dc31 flashes green


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Usually if the indicator light flashes green when the trigger is pulled, this means the machine needs to be charged. If you have had your machine connected to the charger assembly for over 3.5 hours and continue to see the flashing green light, this could mean the machine isn't recharging correctly.

In order for us to diagnose which part is at fault we'd need to take you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine to hand. You can reach our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Flashing lights.


The Flashing lights indicate several different things. 1 flashing red light means its time to charge your unit. if it is still flashing after charging then you will more than likely need to change the battery. A flashing red and green light means that the unit is overheating which could happen if the filters need to be washed, or that there is a blockage or if your machine has been left in direct sunlight. Allow 1 hour for machine to cool down. 3 flashing lights indicated that the pre-filter has been put on incorrectly. I hope this helps. If you do decide to wash your filter dont use any type of soap it is not needed and allow fiter to dry for atleast 24 hours. putting a wet or damp filter in will damage your machine.

Spidem Divina - one cup and 2 cup lights flash together


Hi
Caution light usually means something is out of place. Nothing will work until everything is in place and locked.
Steady water light means it needs to be primed, (run water by opening the steam knob). It won't heat until the boilers are primed.

When i start a wash the water will go into the machine it will was then stops and the lights all flash


Flashing lights mean that machine is reporting a problem. Check the user manual to see what specific flashing is about. Most likely you'll need to call a repair man.
