Default Zanussi washing machine fault

I hope someone can help me. I have a Zanussi washing machine (1605W). I've switched it on and all lights are flashing and beeping. I remember this happened a while ago and can't remember what it is I did to resolve it - it was something like holding the Start and Reset/Skip together, or holding Start down and pressing Reset/Skip a few times.

I've tried both of those things now but the lights still flash.

Has this happened to you? How did you resolve it?

not sure about your make & model, but taking the mains plug out of the socket, for a while, may reset it.
Get some gorm.

I've tried that, thanks, but it still doesn't work.

Has it finished the previous cycle? If not the manual (surprise!) says Reset plus select drain only or drain/spin.

Oh - Just noticed you say the audible signal is sounding. Manual (again) says press reset repeatedly to erase previous programme.

I'm trying to start a new wash cycle. I tried pressing Reset several times and now the green light is just running through all the options constantly. I'm sure it was two buttons together that I pressed last time.

Have you tried pressing and holding in the Skip/Reset button for about 5 seconds?
