Customer Question

HI I have a smeg washing machine PLA 6047X, when I start a cycle everything seems fine until there is a clicking sound from the sump area and then the machine empties out and the 7 lights to the left light up and the two lights on the farthest right, I have disconnected most accesible tubes etc and cant find any blockages or lack of water supply. I am a bit stuck as to know what the problem is.
JA: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: its a smeg PLA6047X and its about 10 years old
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

sorry you may have misunderstood its a dishwasher a smeg PLA6047X, it starts a cycle, then clicks from the sump area then it empties and the 7 lights to the right and 2 to the far right light up and it stops. If I stop the machine and start again the same thing happens. I cant find any blockages or lack of water supply etc.
