Hiya,
There's no such switch on the machine.

What is the actual problem you have?

Thanks

We had a blockage in the ubend from our sink, which has now been cleared, but the dishwasher will not start now, although the power light is on. We think the outlet from the dishwasher goes through the same pipework as the sink, so when it was blocked it may have tripped some sort of overload trip switch in the dishwasher

Hiya,
OK, forget the thought about an overload trip switch, there isn't any such switch on the machine.

You have light showing there's power at the on/off switch.

Are you able to reset and select a new program or are none of the program lights on?

Thanks

The only light coming on seems to be the orange on/off light on the left

Hiya,
Thanks for that.

If none of the program lights are coming on it would suggest a fault with the main control board.

Try pressing and holding together the 1st and 4th program buttons, then close the door.
See if it resets.

Thanks

Tried that and it ran for a minute or two then stopped. Now it won't work again

Hiya,
OK, so, now it's reset, can you choose a program?

If not, what happens if you do the same again?

Thanks
