Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If you are certain there is water to the machine, the water inlet valve is likely faulty.

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The model number looks like SGS56E18GB/01 or maybe SG556E18GB/01. I've removed the metal drain and filter cylinder and looked more closely and there is a very small spray of water coming in from an arch-shaped piece stamped PP-TD20 on the left hand side in the circular white plastic base. The machine doesn't move on from this stage.The water does drain away.

I would recommend replacing the water inlet valve.
