Have to admit am a bit wary about where the water will go when tipping it over as I can see that the main electric input terminal is very low down at the back.
I wonder if there is some way I can test there is water in the 'flood chamber' or test the flood guard trip switch ?
If you think it'll be useful, I'll have a go at the galv. metal side panels which look to be just clip-on affairs.
Unfortunately tipping back did'nt produce any overflow water.
As front kick area is anyway covered by continuos furniture footing strip, now removed; decided just to be daring(!) removed LH galv side panel, and exposed the switchgear and upright water chambers. The bottom tray seemed to be completely dry, and could not see (or hear) any water (to expel) when I tipped or shook.
Being simple minded I was attracted to the pretty red upright plunger towards the front. It seemed to be connected by pivot arm to the back of the pump motor.
Having noted that the chamber the tip (of red plunger) pushed onto was a bit 'gungy', so tickled it a bit and decided to see what ever.
Switched on, and pump now stops when door opens.
Will run cycle, observe and let you know. (In about 60mins)
