There is water in the tub,
the waste hose goes straight into the outside drain.
Can I ask you to take a moment and rate my responses so far? Please use the smiley faces / stars, 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
I looked at the pipe at the back and it's draining freely, and I opened the filter at the front and it's clear of any fluff etc. but the machine still flashes at the start button and the door light is on even though the door lock 'clicked' as it engaged so I know it is working.. Any suggestions?
Yes, the filter was clean and the pipe at the rear wasn't blocked either- earlier I followed the instructions I saw on another website as to how to reset the control panel so it would show what it's problem was by the number of red flashes between the green flashing of the start button, and it showed 3 red flashes- which means something..
PS.The water that drained from the filter pipe was dirty
To reset I think I had to press the start button and the one to the left of it simultaneously while turning the programme dial once around clockwise which made the control lights flash in sequence and then turn the programme dial again one space which made the start button flash green then red 3 times.
The start button is just flashing green now
Turn the appliance on, any programme except the 1st one.
Close the door.
Wait 1 minute.
Press and hold the start/pause and the option button immediately to the left of it together.
The leds should flash, note the number
Turn the knob to the off position.
Press and hold the 2 buttons again.
While holding them, turn the dial 1 notch clockwise.
The leds should flash, release the buttons.
The leds should now be scrolling.
If they are, turn the knob slowly through each position clockwise until you get to off again.
Then turn to any programme.
Turn back to off.
Try the machine again.
Let me know what happens.
I followed your instructions exactly. It scrolled as you described, then flashed red 3 times again. Tried to start it again, still just flashes green.
the green light on the start button is flashing continuously.
oh,no. I think I might have to scrap it..
Yes please, do you know what 3 red flashes means?
