Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

Can you undo the appliance and remove it from its housing, then tell me if any water comes out from its rear at the base

Customer:

Hello George, thanks for responding. Unfortuately, I have been unable to pull it out from the kitchen unit it is fitted into. I have removed the starhead screws and wound the rear leg up but cannot pull the machine out. It does sound as if there is water still in the machine. It will not reset and I am unable to set a program.

George-Allsorts :

OK.. There will be screws at the top edge ( and sometimes at the side too ) as you open the door.. you need to remove these in order to release the front end.. also, wind up the front legs

If you can't get the appliance out, then you will need to remove the front door covering.. ( ie. the one that looks like the rest of the kitchen ) and the plate at the bottom behind it to gain access to the water... Use a towel to soak it up.

MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE DISHWASHER IS DISCONNECTED BEFORE DOING THIS

Customer:

OK, thanks, ***** ***** did unscrew all I could see. I will look again and wind the front legs up. I will be some time due to work.

Customer:
