Hi my name is ***** ***** in the UK - left led flashing indicates that you have water in the base. If you remove the bottom kickstrip below the main door you will have access to the base area. With power off, old towell inside and dry it all out.

there's no water in the base. We have just got the machine (2nd hand) it did a whole cycle in the 1st place then it just sat there with the light going next time we tried it.

Hi - sorry to not get back to you earlier as just tilting the machine seemed to wake it up & it's going through the cycle - so far so good

Sounds like you did have water in the base which had activated the flood protection device, tipping it back has reset the system which explains why it now is working.
