Thank you for your answer. I called the engineer back, reporting your advice. As mentioned, the condenser unit had already been replaced. The engineer was certain it wasn't the inlet valve causing the problem, but offered to change it if I wanted (parts and labour being around £90, and no guarantee of success). Having already spent £100 trying to fix it, I declined and have now ordered a new machine. Thank you, anyway.
