KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me its complete model number

Customer:

Unable to locate model number. On top of door has on/off switch at left. Delay button,time display mini screen, and 4 further wash cycles to the right.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, it is located inside the door

KevinWhiteJA :

starts with E nr

Customer:

Thanks. SE24T250GB/32. Is this sufficient?

KevinWhiteJA :

Yes Thank you

KevinWhiteJA :

have you already tried to leave it unplugged for few minutes

Customer:

No but will do so. Same principle as fixing my laptop.

KevinWhiteJA :

please do and let me know if that makes any difference

Customer:

Unfortunately the S is still there.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, then you need to top up the appliance with both Salt and Rinse Aid

KevinWhiteJA :

Looking at the age of this unit it better to top them both up

Customer:

Thank you ! That has worked. Many thanks. Not only have you helped fix the dishwasher but I have now cleaned behind it before replacing it. Happy New Year.
