How do i reset washing machine AEG 64840

You can choose the right programme for any type of laundry following the descriptions on the washing programme tables (see «Washing Programmes»).
Turn the programme selector dial to the required programme. The programme selector determines the type of washing cycle (e.g. water level, drum movement, number of rinses) and the washing temperature according to the type of laundry.
The pilot light of button 8 starts blinking.
The selector dial can be turned either clockwise or anticlockwise. Position "0" to Reset programme/ Switching OFF of the machine.
At the end of the programme the selector dial must be turned to position "0", to switch the machine off.
If you turn the programme selector dial to another programme when the machine is working, the yellow pilot light of button 8 will blink 3 times and the message Err is displayed on the display to indicate a wrong selection. The machine will not perform the new selected programme.

After selecting the wash programme sounds as if machine about to fill with water but at this point it defaults to start/pause. Have tried selecting reset/skip button but repeats the same problem, please...

Is there any water filling into the machine? If not then the filters on the machine may be clogged up and need to be cleaned? There is also a filter on the hose of the machine where it connects to the water mains pipe.
It just means removing them and rinsing them under the tap.

Try to pull out the power-cable from the contact. Wait for at least 30 seconds then reconect it again.
Sometimes that can help but not always. If that dosent help you need to let a profesional repairshop fix your machine.

Good luck

Why wont my machine start drying?

I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!
