Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)
According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.
Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes. 1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate. 2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.
This problem is common on Gaggias. Sometimes if you wait 30 minutes or more, the machine will complete the cycle and go back to normal
functions. Just wait to allow time for the rinse cycle to complete, when machine is stuck it can take over 30 mins. You
can do this by continuing to fill up the water resovoir four or five
times to see if the machine completes the rinse cycle on its own.
If that doesn't work contact Gaggia, US number is 888-389-4123, for contact number in your area consult your user manual.
Gaggias may give you some trouble of this kind from time to time, but they are good Italian brand coffeemakers, and the coffee is usually really great.
This flashing light indicates that your cycle or start-up was interrupted. Possible causes: The door opened during the cycle, or the power was interrupted. To resume operation: Make sure the door is closed, and press Start/Resume.
The Clean light is flashing
You should call for service if the Clean light is flashing and the machine is inoperable. It is normal if the Clean light stays on after the cycle is complete. The Clean light is an indication that the dishwasher has been run and that the dishes inside it are clean. Once the door is opened after the cycle is complete, the light will shut off.
The lights are rapidly flashing
Any key that gets stuck will rapidly flash. Press the key a few times in order to release it or press Cancel.
The Rinse Only light is rapidly flashing
If multiple keys are stuck, the Rinse Only light will flash. Press each key, one at a time, to release the stuck keys, or press cancel.
Hi, You can remove the top cover of the unit and put your hands towards the door lock and just hit fair enough to get release the lock mostly it will open if not means just break the lock and replace it since if you are technician it will be easier for you if not kindly call the technician and do the service
Try first to continue filling up the water resovoir (UP TO FOUR times) to see if the machine completes the rinse cycle on its own.
If that doesn't work contact Gaggia Customer Service in the US at 888-389-4123. Sally there was VERY helpful and should be able to resolve your problem.
