Can u tell me wether the water tap is open ie turned towards me or towards back of dishwasher too.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.

The tap is likely off the tap should go in the direction of the pipe. So if the lever is going with the pipe it should be on...and perpendicular to the pipe is off.

The only way I receive any credit at all for my time is by you selecting a STAR USING THE 5 STAR or VOTING RATING SYSTEM AT THE TOP OF YOUR PAGE before you leave for me so please make sure you are rating me not another tech. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks GURU

Doesn't answer my question.The orange tap inside the dishwasher & not on the pipes .Also why is it bleeping and why is the tablet in the bottom of the dishwasher when it was working please & not washing properly ?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.

There is no water to the unit, so either the tap is off or the fill valve is bad. Do you see a dome float in the corner of the machine when you open door?

There is an orange disc on the left hand side inside the machine which you can turn either towards you or towards back of machine which I think is the anti flood device.Which way should it be.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.

Which way do you have it? Or can you take a picture of it?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.

OK turn it the other way and try it
