Finally, EA5 indicates that the electronic control unit is malfunctioning, which should also be checked.

E03 Water is not being heated. This may be due to either a failure of the heating element itself or a failure of its relay. First, check the relay and replace it if necessary. If the relay is faulty, then the boost heater itself must be replaced.

EA6. In this case, the machine, for some reason, cannot start washing (data on the rotation of the drum is not received for 30 seconds). Perhaps the machine has not completely closed the door lock. You can try to open and close the hatch and start the program again. Sometimes the culprit can again be the drive belt, which again needs to be either tensioned or replaced.
