Can I ask you to take a moment and rate my responses so far? 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
Rob, I've already tried that and it doesn't seem to affect the pressure coming into the machine, such that it visibly slows down the fill. However, that was a visual check, without the drawer in and actually doing a wash. Will try that now. Can I come back to this question after I have tried your suggestion? I do not have an account. I came to this site via Google and have only so far provided my e-mail and card details.
OK, thanks Rob. My wife is starting the wash and we will get back to you in good time. Thanks
We live in a hard water area in France, is it possible there might be a calcium buid-up somewhere in the system and, if so, where might it be? I know it's difficult to answer that but, since there are really no servicable parts I can inspect short of taking the thing to bits, it might give me a clue as to where I might look!
OK, thanks Rob. Speak to you later.
I have found the problem. The water is getting through the holder that the drawer fits in. The top of the holder is held to its body (that cradles the drawer) by several lugs. I can see the water coming from either side of one particular lug. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get the top off by myself so I'll ask a friend of mine to come over and help me. It may be that some deposits are causing the top to 'lift' by that lug and unseating it slightly.
It's very warm outside and I've spent enough time doing this so (and you won't be happy to hear this!) I'm going outside for a beer.
Thanks for your help.
All ok now. The problem was calcium build-up in the numerous holes that deliver the water to the drawer, thus routing it elsewhere and causing the overflow. Now working perfectly after cleaning the nozzles. Thanks again for your help.
