Thank you for that .

Try to check the water inlet filter. Turn your tap off, remove the hose to the unit and inspect the inlet filter. It could be clogged with dirt. The unit is sensing that you do not have water in your supply.

Another thing to check is your water pressure. It should be strong.

Hello Francis,

Thank you so much for your help today. We followed your advice and yes, it was just as you suggested. After clearing the filter, the water is flowing more freely into the machine now, hopefully solving the problem.

Many thanks again,
