Does your machine have a display or only lights?
Are any of the lights flashing?
Has the machine stopped full or empty of water?
Just lights and not display - has some water in
As previous, are any of the lights flashing?
If it's faulty or child lock activated the lights flash.
Check on the facia panel, is there a picture/symbol of a child or padlock?
Normally it's between 2 buttons.
sorry yes the start/pause button is flashing red and cannot see a child or padlock symbol but there is a symbol that looks like a washing basket with a plus sign above it and this is inbetween the spin & super quick buttons - hope this helps
OK, look at the start light.
It should be flashing a sequence.
Count the flashes between pauses and let me know how many.
just counted the flashes - got to 60 without any pause?
OK, thanks for that.
The fault isn't making logical sense.
It's extremely unlikely that it's been button pressing causing the problem as you say the light goes green when you press it.
I would have expected 2 flashes, pause, 2 flashes etc.
Are you able to cancel the program and select a new one?
Yes - I have done this but nothing seems to happen except you can hear a noise like it is wanting to start but nothing happens then eventually the button flashes red again
OK, I'm assuming you are able to cancel the program.
If that is the case, you'll need to manually drain the water out via the filter.
Put a shallow dish down (and towels) and slacken the filter cap a little.
Tighten it when you need to empty the dish.
Once you have the machine empty of water, fully unscrew the filter cap and pull out the filter.
Remove the debris jamming the pump.
Ensure the X shaped pump impellor can turn.
Refit the filter and try the machine again.
If all is well, it should be working again.
Obviously, if you cannot do the work yourself, you'll need to get someone in to do the work for you.
Hope this helps
Not aure where this is and mu hibby is out at the moment - as soon as he returns I will do as you have said and hopefully this will get it started again - Thanks for your help
The filter is at the bottom front of the machine.
Unless it's integrated you should have a door/flap that opens to reveal it.
On some, it's below the front panel
