It sounds like the machine has water in the base, where the pumps are.
This sets the flood guard and the discharge pump will run continuously in an effort to protect the electrics in the base.Turn off the electric.
Remove the lower kick panel and you will see water in there. Carefully dry it upThe machine should now be reset.If this re occurs you have a leak and will need to find it and rectify it .
Can I ask you to take a moment and rate my response? Please use the smiley faces which you should now see. Please remember you are rating me personally, not the website or the problems you have had with this machine.This will not close your question and you can still come back to me if you need more helpThanksRob
HiNo worries about the delayIm afraid the wooden plinth has to come off to get access to the machines kick panel.The only other altrnative is to drag the whole thing out, which is even more dismantling of cupboards.If you prefer can get an all in quote for someone to do t for you, I would just need your postcode.Sorry !Rob
