  • Start - Pause LED flashes on tumble dryer

Applies to

  •  Tumble dryers


  •  Check if the door is fully closed

  • close the door before starting the machine
  • Before you press the start/pause button on the dryer, make sure the door is completely closed.
  • If the door is not completely closed, the start/pause button will simply flash and the cycle will not start.

  • The Start-Pause LED also indicates that the selected cycle is finished.
  • When a drying cycle is finished, all the LED's will come on. This indicates the anti-crease phase (30 minutes).
  • Then, the Start-Pause LED goes off and the filter, condenser and Finished LED's come on (10 minutes).
  • Finally, all the LED's will go off and the Start-Pause LED starts flashing.

  •  It is possible that your tumble dryer has a delayed start option enabled.
  • If your product has a display, you will see the countdown to the delayed start time.
  • If the product does not have a display, a light will flash next to a time symbol, e.g. 4h-8h-12h.

  •  If delayed start is enabled and you want to start the appliance immediately, you can disable the delayed start function.

  • To disable the setting for delayed start, switch the appliance off and then switch it back on again.
  • If this does not work, see the section on delayed start in the user manual for the appliance. 

  •  You may be able to fix the problem by resetting the washing machine.

  • To do this, remove the plug from the socket, wait 3 minutes and then plug it in again.

            Check the power supply.

  • Remove the plug from the socket
  • Plug in another appliance to see if the socket works
