    1. Childlock:
      To prevent the set functions of the washing machine from
      being accidentally changed, the childproof lock
      can be activated when the programme has started.
      Activate/deactivate: press
      >>Finish in<< BUTTON for approx. 5 seconds

  1. I have purchase this model, i.e IQ700 on 31/12/1012 from a dealer.Model No: WM12S648ME. It was commission after a week. Now,Power module is not working as per your technician. It fail to start & no indicators were glowing on 16/06/2015. It means this costly machine also as short life. Repairs are equally costly. In india, we can get domestic help at the rate of repairs for a year. Please comment. This machine is working in mumbai & as good power supply.

  2. The machine full of clothes over weight and I can’t open it..F.23 only appeared what should I do
    so I can open the door

    how do i reset the computer on a IQ 700 washing machine I always get a error code when i turn it on. E:23 and -00-

    1. Fault E23 is electrical problem with the drain pump.
      Error will be on drain pump relay on the control board, or drain pump has failed.

  4. Hi , My machine started beeping during a wash and it is telling me to clean the pump which I know is the drawer on bottom right hand side ! I have opened the door but cant twist the knob to release it is there a safety release ?

  5. I open the bottom and clean the pipe after seing the E23 flash. Still the machine Will not work.
    Just a beeping sound. What Will i do?

    1. Fault F 67 is a nonspecific glitch electronics appliance. Disconnect the machine per hour from electricity. If, after reconnecting the error persists, call customer service.

  6. My washing machine broke doen. No power. So no access to machine controls. How do I unload the unfinished wash? And how do I error detect? It just went dead out of the blue. Power plug all good.

    1. Snap, ours has just done exactly the same, absolutely nothing! Luckily ours had no water as i’d just put it on to do a spin so opening the door wasnt an issue. If you look to the bottom right of the machine you’ll see a little hatch – flip it down and you’ll see a red tab which pulling on will open the door.
      No idea whats caused it or how to fault find so i guess its going to be another costly call out.

      Hope you have it sorted now

  7. The door on our front loader is not opening. Have tried the little red tab at the bottom by pulling it to the right but no luck. Have also tried fishing line around the door to try to flick the latch, still no luck. Any other suggestions please?! I have a machine full of wet washing 🙁

  8. The washing machine is running fine – doing a 40 degree wash. But the display shows “i turn on type” and makes a ringing warning sound like a bell. Why does it do this when all seems to be working fine?

  9. The door didn’t open at the end of cycle. Any ideas what to do? I tried pulling on the red tab with a plier and ripped

  10. My machine just broke down mid wash. I drained it and opened the door using the flap at the bottom right but there is no power getting to the machine. I’ve checked the plug and fuse – all ok. but nothing happening on the machine.
    I see its happened to 2 others – was there a solution?

  11. my machine is not turning on, i just hear tow or three click voice when plugged the cable to electricity. control panel is not turning on.

  12. Machine does not seem to have water despite water supply on. What could the problem be as it commences the program but just stops?

  13. Hi
    I turned on washer and everything lite up. I wanted to adjust ‘speed Perfect’ but nothing happen so I turned the dial to off then on again nothing happened so I tried to push ‘speed Perfect again and at the point I heard an internal click and the machine had no power. At first I thought it was the power breaker but when I went to check they were all on. So I checked the power switch by plugging a new appliance in and it lite up so I then decided it must be internal.

    Question: Is there an internal safety switch or is there a reset process

  14. I Have Error E23 on Seimens IQ 700, Washing is full of washing…all filters have been cleaned. Cant get door open just beeps this error and no movement.
    I have turned off at power and unplugged.

    1. Hi, E23 means:

      Water in the base.
      Safety switch has detected water in the base.
      Please turn off the tap. Faults can only be eliminated by an experienced engineer. We recommend contacting customer service.

    1. Hi, fault E18 menans: Drainage hose blocked or kinked

      “Clean filters in the water supply hose. Attention: The leaking water may be very hot (risk of scalding). Set programme selector to . Pull out the mains plug. Check whether the drainage hose has been installed without kinks. Loosen hose clip on the siphon, carefully remove drainage hose (residual water). Clean drainage hose and siphon spigot. Hold drainage hose in a bucket and select the programme. Connect drainage hose to the siphon and check for leaks.”

    1. Hi, Nadim,
      it’s weird that the E20 fault code is reported by the washing machine, it’s a dishwasher error code:
      “The appliance reports an error with the rinsing circuit, which could be caused by a fault in the circulating pump. Call customer service and quote the relevant Siemens dishwasher error code.”
