miele w4842 owners..do not set hygiene info to off
So with all my playing around yesterday in the Programming mode with my new W4842, without realzing it...I set Hygiene Info to OFF.
Today, I wanted to run a Clean Machine cycle. I put bleach in the dispenser, and scrolled thru the MasterCare Cycles...and Clean Machine was not there! Just gone! But, there was an Express Cycle listed in MasterCare. Us W4842 owners know this should not be there, since the 4842 now has a hard button for Express, on the main control panel (W4840 has Express in the MasterCare options).
When I tried the Express button on the main control panel...it was VERY odd & wrong. Temperature options were No Heat and Cold. Spin was stuck on Slow! In the MasterCare Options, the Express Cycle let me select Warm water and different spin speeds. What happened to my Clean Machine cycle, that I love?? Why is my Express button not letting me select options??
On the phone with Miele for 30+ mins..... Finally hung up, and went on a search mission myself. Entered Programming mode again, and saw that Hygiene Info was set to OFF. Set it to ON, and voila...Clean Machine Cycle is now once again offered in MasterCare, and my Express button on the main control panel now lets me select water temps and spin speeds!
I think this is a lesson, and why Miele does not include instructions on how to enter Programming and Service modes! BE CAREFUL what you turn ON and OFF in Programming mode. It can have real implications!!!
