Hi Michael, I don't think that it is although I'm not 100% sure. We use the machine every day and the only times that I've removed the bottonm plate is when it stops - typically after two washes i.e. two days. I suppose I could leave it for a day without running it and then check for water?
Thank you - I'll do that - hopefully I can be back to you later today. Thanks for your help so far.
Hi Michael, I left it all night and I tipped it forward this morning and there is no sign of any water. I have run it through a cycle this morning and the base pan filled with water and machine stopped before the cycle finished. Very puzzling!
HI, Espares have asked if it is the Non return valve, Solenoid valve or the Circulation valve. Regards Nick
Hi, a solenoid valve costs about £120 - are you reasonably sure this will be the problem? If that cures the problem I'll be very pleased as the rest of the machine looks good although it is 12 years old. Obviously, though, I don't want to fit a new solenoid and still have a problem. Thanks for your help - much appreciated.
Hi Michael, yes - it is the metal tray under the unit held in place by 4 screws. It fills with water and activates the float and the red inlet/drain warning light flashes.
