Is this constantly running the drain pump? What happens f you open the door?

Can you pull this out from under the worktop?



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it sounds like it is trying to drain all the time but there is no water.
I cannot pull it out easily
Expert:  Rob replied 1 year ago.



Im fafraid that to reset this, you will need to get it out.

the machine has waterin the base, where the pumps are.

This sets the floodguard and the discharge pump will run continuously in an effort toprotect the electrics in the base.
Turn off the electric.
Pullmachine forward.
Put towels down behind the machine.
Tiltmachine back at 45 degrees.
Water will come out the back.
Themachine should now be reset.
If this re occurs you have a leak andwill need to find it and rectify it .
