Telemann TEL6tl E2 Problem

E2 on screen means the lid is not closing properly and thus not activating the (hidden) switch that prevents the machine from spinning while the lid is up.

The lid switch in this model is not a direct contact switch between lid and switch , but it switches on and off due to a MAGNET embedded in the lid on the left hand side near the front. You will see a small indentation where the magnet SHOULD BE. My magnet had fallen off, so the lid could not activate the operation switch. I had lost the original magnet( about 1cm X 2cm) so glued another into place.

Machine is now fully operational again, and the job cost .78c.

If your magnet is still in place, the E2 fault could lay with the switch itself , which is fixed to the underside of the top casing of the machine near the front right hand side of the lid cavity. The switch measures 1cm X 3cm heavily black tape insulated. Access is gained by popping the 2 X2cm discs at front top of machine and releasing the 2 small philips screws here and a further 2 at the back top of machine. This operation of replacing the switch is best left to an electrician or washing machine specialist.

Hope that helps

Other blinking lights or beeping sounds may indicate a problem with the dishwasher caused by power surges. Try pressing the "Start/Reset" pad to reset the dishwasher and wait 2 minutes. If the problem persists, reset (reboot) the dishwasher by turning off power to the unit at the house circuit breaker/fuse box for 30 seconds. Restore power and the dishwasher should function normally.

The door gasket may have to be replaced, especially if it has become hardened or cracked.

this could be the anti flood device has operated in the base of the machine. This is a polystyrene disc that is attatched to a microswitch. If there is water in the base of the machine this disc floats and turns on the pump

That usual means water level too high try tilting your dishwasher to one side and some water will spill and then try it again sometime the float in dishwasher is detecting water level too high if that doesn’t you may need the water flow meter that’s a big plastic usual found on the side of the dishwasher

Fault symptoms point to a burnt out element, which will need to be replaced.
