CE Water distributor fault, this machine has a small motor in the dispenser to select the Compartment to fill through, this, in turn, operates a microswitch inside the dispenser

CF EPROM fault Some of these faults are locked in and will return even if the machine is disconnected; the only way to clear them is to run the test program. Hold in Pre-wash and soak button while turning rotary knob to gentle spin.
