Wash 3h AND End 9h

Hi

Ok thanks for that. This error code you have can be a few things.

First make sure the mesh filter is fitted correctly in place and also make sure its all clean. Turn it over and make sure it isnt covered in slime.

If thats fine then you need to access the workings underneath and locate the pressure switch and remove the tube to it and blow hard through it as if you have an airlock in there this can cause the fault as well.

But if thats all fine then its possibley the wash motor at fault. As if this doesnt kick in and spray the water around the water level doesnt drop so the pressure switch thinks its overfilled and aborts the cycle and flashes the error code.

So try the above and see what you find. As moving it could have caused an airlock in the pressure chamber or it could be a faulty wash motor as they dont like to be moved around these appliances.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

HAVING PROBLEMS CONTACTING YOU

Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.
Hi

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

To access the pressure switch you need to remove both side panels and its usually on the side. Its a small round thing with a few wires to it and a thin hose going to the bottom of it.
