Gorenje Washing Machine Faults And Troubleshooting

Gorenje washing machine efficiency relies on SensorIQ technology that automatically optimises the washing process. With energy ratings of A+++ and features including SteamTech and AquaStop, this is an appliance that makes doing the laundry simple.

When things go wrong it’s helpful to know why – even if you need to contact a professional to put it right! See a range of Gorenje washing machine faults and troubleshooting here…


Gorenje washing machine faults range from the door not closing properly to heater failure. The appliance will signal the fault as soon as it’s detected and the programme will stop. If the fault is signalled when the washing machine is working the error code will simultaneously be displayed with flashing LEDs.

Causes of the flashes are listed below:
  • - One flash – temperature sensor failure
  • - Two flashes – the door isn’t closed correctly
  • - Three flashes – inappropriate water intake
  • - Four flashes – spinning sensor failure
  • - Five flashes – motor failure
  • - Six flashes – heater failure
  • - Seven flashes – inappropriate water outlet

Bear in mind that occasionally interferences from the environment can cause the washing machine to signal faults. Re-occurring faults should always be checked out by a qualified repair engineer.
