Yes, still looking for help. I am in a different place from where the machine is now, but have been fiddling with it for a week, so can tell you exactly what it does.
Upon switching on any cycle (there are 4 - pre-wash, economical, light wash and heavy pot/pans) it sounds like it is filling with water. However once I open the door there no water in the machine. Once door is closed the cycle is continued and the following happens:
1) the machine is filled with water, starts the wash, goes for about 5-10 min, stops, drains, the start light is flashing
2) cannot be restarted, have to depress the start button for 5+ seconds, initiates drain cycle
3) start it again - fill sound, no water, stops almost immediately, light flashing
4) push the button, drain sound, light is off, can start
if trying to re-start the points 3) and 4) are repeated. If the machine is left overnight, the whole thing - points 1 to 4 happen again.
In the last week I managed to get only one decent wash from the machine. We pulled out the inlet filter - no evident blockage. Checked the filter basket in the machine - all good. Poured a kettle of boiling water into the black drain in the filter - no luck.
