Siemens SI 14.44 iQ700 washing machine reset for an F43 error

Hi. We have a Siemens WI14S440GB washing machine - aka SI 14.44.

It threw an F43 error the day, so I've taken it to bits and replaced the brushes (both of which had worn to under 10mm) - but the F43 persists. The new brushes are installed correctly and in contact with the commutator and the wiring is of course connected up again.

On other Siemens models of washing machine, there is a process to follow to reset the machine after the brushes have been changed as follows:

1. Turn the dial to the off or reset position (should be at the 12 o'clock position)
2. Turn the dial to the 6 o'clock position.
3. Press and hold down on the spin button and simultaneously turn the dial to the 7 o'clock position.

But as you can see from the picture below, there is no spin button on my machine, and I haven't found any information on the net so far on how to reset my particular model of machine. Any help appreciated.
