When you open the door does the pump stop?
ok, but when you close the door a pump starts?
If I turn off the machine and try to set a program it bleeps and the intense and economy lights flash if I then shut the door the pump kicks in. IThe pumps carries on for about 30 seconds then stops. It sounds like it is trying to drain any water in the system but this happens even if there is no water.
at the beginning of each wash the pump should come on for about 30 seconds to drain away any liquid, so that is correct
Can you hear a slight buzzing noise at the rear of the machine?
no, no noise
Pull the machine out, turn off water, remove inlet hose. Place it in bucket and turn on water, do you have good pressure? Make sure filter in inlet valve is clear
done,sorry k longer integrated machine. inlet hose not blocked. water pressure good
ok and the filter in the inlet valve is clear?
well the likely culprit is the inlet valve not opening to let water in
you need to test the inlet valve for continuity. if its open circuit you will need to replace it
how do i do that?
you need to remove the rear kick panel and locate the inlet valve, its what the inlet hose is attached to. Make sure you turn off the water and the 240v first
ok have found it, can i test it or do i just need to replace it
ok, you need a multi meter to test it
if its open circuit it is faulty and you will need to replace it
