Also tried putting water directly into machine but drains away and then the water lacking alarm sounds and beeps.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK do you get an error code when it beeps? Secondly do you have any water in the base of the cabinet, not the wash cavity but below it?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
One beep one flash. Doesn't appear to hold any water in the sump.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

No but if you get a slight leak the flood protection device will activate and stop the appliance operating.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Don't appear to have any leak. No water under machine.
But would it be worth looking at??
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

Take it out, lean it on its back and pop the base off, check to see if you have water or water staining in the base pan.

Should be back home later and will try what you say and let you know how I get on.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,

OK should be having a break at 4 - 6 but then back online

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No water, slight staining directly beneath the Drain Pump but no indication that that is where the staining originated.
Little staining on the two 10mm pipes on the sump just above the pump (one Clear and the other Grey, think they are about 10mm). Again no indication that either are leaking
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Also had a good look at all pipework, joints etc and no indication of any leak or staining anywhere else
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Are you still thinking of a solution to the problem. Joe

Do you have a multimeter?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Not at home at present and won't be back till Friday but I can borrow a multimeter from work if you do have any ideas. Thinking myself maybe one of the pressure switches or the loom on the door.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK grab the multimeter and come back to me on Friday and we can go through it.

Covers off and ready to go when you are.
Power on or off? Basic continuity checks or working voltages etc??
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
You were online a while back and was waiting for your suggestions.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK first thing disconnect the supply to the solenoid and test to see if you have got 240 volts at the solenoid at the fill point.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
240 there
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

Any water going in?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
only if i connect solenoid valve up again
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
If I leave it disconnected, get the three beep audible alarm which according to the manual tells me the anti flood device is activated.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK so you have water going into the water softener but not from the water softener to the wash tank?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK you need to check the coil resistance on the solenoids on the water softener. They should be between 3 & 4 ohms

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
4 ohms exactly
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK you have two pressure switches attached to this appliance. round things with pipes goint to them. Check that the pipes are not blocked.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Already checked and no blockage, Gentle blow through and you can feel the switch mechanism flip.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK one final thing - the flood protection switch in the base, is that operating?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
polystyrene float - dry as a bone.
switch itself seems intact but haven't checked it for open circuit or anything.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Definitely in its lowest position though
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
that is you can hear it click when float is lifted
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK you need to check it for continuity it should change as you lift the fload

Awkward so bear with me while I remove bottom tray
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK got a piece of paper wedged in without removing tray.
Switch is closed when down and open when paper wedged underneath so continuity OK
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

OK well we have checked the solenoids, we know the pump works and that the pressure switches are not blocked. Only thing that has any further relevance is the main pcb - just have a look at that and see if there are any burnt tracks or breaks in cables.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Bingo!! Orange Brown Brown Blue in that order of main plug into PCB.
First of the brown cables Burnt possibly a spill would you say?
I'll have a go at clean up and solder, and let you know how I get on.
Hopefully the damage is just limited to that, If not may be more economical to replace the whole machine.
Didn't see main PCB as a replacement that is still available anywhere.
UK Appliance Technician: bonzaco,
 replied 1 year ago

Yes likely and would cause the pcb to be damaged. Likely we could get the pcb repaired if your diy doesnt work. Come back to me when you have it resoldered.
