thanks. Yes we can hear the pump running for maybe a minute or so. Any ideas?
Check your warranty.. I am sure that Baumatic models carry a two year warranty.
The E1 error that you are receiving is alerting you to a 'Longer than expected fill time or drain time'.This could mean that the water in the appliance is unable to fully drain or that the appliance is unable to fill..According to what I can see in the Service Manual, this model has (part number #672030099107 BDI681 Inlet hose) with aquastop & internal wires... Check that the aquastop is working correctlyCheck the following:Inlet sideCheck the water pressure of your mains water supply.Clean the mesh filter that sits in the inlet hose.Ensure that the inlet hose is not kinked or crushed and ensure it is working.Make sure the water tap that the machine is connected to is turned on fully.Outlet sideCheck that the outlet hose is not kinked or crushed and that it’s positioned correctly (as per the installation instructions).
Please rate the assistance given and feel free to ask if you require further advice, I'll help if I can
I did not learn anything that was not in the manual or I had deduced except the two year warranty we are checking this point.
Thanks for the comments.
I tend to agree that the aqua stop is the problem as even with the filter element perfectly clean no water flows into the chamber.
The actual functionality of the Aqua stop is certainly questionable as there is no more I can do since the whole tube is fixed in location.
We are checking the warranty this morning and will go from there.
Hello again Jim,If you wish to test the aqua stop you can test it by using an inline voltmeter. This will tell you if the Aquastop is switching; however, it will not tell you if the pcb is being switched by the Aquastop.
I do not condone live testing if it is not necessary or if you are not competent to do so, so please do not ask me HOW to do this.
