What happens if you cancel the programme and start a new one?
The drain pump should run first.
The drain pump should stop.
Water should come in.
Is your drain pump running all the time?
OK, thanks for that.
The first part of the sequence works ok.
When it gets to the part where it should fill, do you hear a hum from the inlet valve?
(This may be a large item attached to the house plumbing).
yes, I hear a hum. When I open the door of the dishwasher it is clear that the water has been moving as there is a slurp but there is no additional water. There is also a churning like a washing sound
Sorry, I asked earlier if the drain pump was running all the time.
When you responded you said it had stopped.
Now, in your last post, you appear to intimate that something is running with the door open.
Is the drain pump running when you open the door?
OK, by manually advancing the timer you started the wash motor.
This isn't part of the fault you have.
The fault you have is the aqua stop is locked out.
At the connection point to the house drains, is there a large attachment to the water supply hose?
(The parts diagram seems to show 3 different methods of supply hose).
ok, can i fix it and how?
I asked if you had an aquastop fitted to the supply valve.
You didn't respond to my question.
I'll assume that you do.
Attached to the house plumbing should be the aquastop.
Unplug the appliance.
Turn the water off.
Disconnect the aquastop from the plumbing and lower it down so it's flat on the floor.
A little water may come out of it.
Wait 1 minute.
Refit the aquastop and partially open the water valve, just open it a little.
Try the machine again.
Does any water trickle into the appliance?
HI, are you there?
Sorry for the delay, having computer problems at the moment.
Did you open the valve fully or just a small amount?
If you opened it fully then it will have locked out again if there's a blockage in the machine.
Try again, open the valve a little.
Sorry, I've got nothing else I can offer on this.
It's suggesting a timer fault or wiring fault but I've no way to prove this without being there and using specialist test equipment.
I'll opt out of the question and open it to all experts again.
Hopefully one of them can help further.
Good luck with it.
