KevinWhiteJA :

Hi

KevinWhiteJA :

Hope you are doing fine

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is the Dishwasher?

JACUSTOMER-3190m6e0- :

I dont know as we bought it with the flat, why is that relevant ?

KevinWhiteJA :

ok, thank you for the information

KevinWhiteJA :

If you number the programe lights with 1 on the left, this should be lights 3 and 5.....is that right ?

JACUSTOMER-3190m6e0- :

No, the way they are set out it is two and four

JACUSTOMER-3190m6e0- :

There is no fifth light, only four and then the programme selector button

JACUSTOMER-3190m6e0- :

So the sequence from the left is 1 heavy duty wash, 2 normal daily wash, 3 soak, 4 eco, then the selector button

KevinWhiteJA :

ok, if you have tried to leave the unit unplugged and while it is unplugged please check if everything is clean with the drain inlet valve & pump assembly...also after it fills just check if the water inside is hot enough...please let me know how it goes

JACUSTOMER-3190m6e0- :

It wont fill. Since the lights came on at the end of a normal (hot) cycle we have not been able to get it to do anything. After switching off and on again it simply comes back on with the lights flashing.

KevinWhiteJA :

Can you please check the inlet hose and water inlet valve & make sure everything is clean
