Hiya,
Can you post the 12 digit number beginning 85 from the label on the side of the door?
You'll need to prefix it with A to prevent it being crossed out.

eg. A854500015810

When it stops and it reverts to rinse, is the start light flashing?
If it is, count the flashes and let me know how many.

Thanks

Hiya,
If it's flashing continuously it suggests the fault is with the temperature sensor.

Take the filters out so you can see into the sump.
Remove all the water in there.

Select a hot program again.

Pour a kettle of boiling water into the sump.
Start the program.

See if it now runs.
If still the same, pour a jug of cold water into the sump and try it again.

Let me know what happens.
Thanks

Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.

How are your diy skills and toolkit?
Would you be able to take the machine apart to investigate further and to change parts?

Thanks
