Hiya,

Hiya,
Thanks for that.

We'll try it on the test program, see what comes up.


1. Ensure that the dishwasher is switched On and check that no programme is selected.
2. Press the Programme button (P) once.
3. Press the Stand-by button. The display will switch Off.
4. Immediately press the Stand-by button. The display will switch On.
5. Press the Programme button (P) once.
6. Press the Stand-by button. The display will switch Off.
7. Immediately press the Stand-by button. The display will switch On. The Pre-Wash and Drying symbols will be flashing.

Long Test
1. Press the Programme button (P) once. The Wash and Rinse symbols will be displayed.
2. Press the Start/Reset button. 'ROD' will be displayed and the test programme will be carried out.
3. At the end of the test, the buzzer sounds twice and 'END' is displayed. Pressing the (P) button will then enable the programmes to be selected as normal.

Try that and let me know what you find.

Thanks
