I don't want the live discussion offer thanks.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Have you tried holding down the Start button to RESET the dishwasher program
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes we have.No change
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Then has the dishwasher got water inside?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it hasn't. It finished the last cycle yesterday evening and now won't programme a wash.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Then I can only presume that your PCB module (Programmer) has become defective and will need replacing.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
I have just had a look at the board for this model.. There is a fuse near the inlet on the board that would cause the problem you have... try changing the fuse.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What type of fuse is it? will it be part of the PCB?
I will take the DW apart tomorrow and try and find it.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
It is a glass fuse and it is next to the large relay on the board.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thanks George, Ill try your advice and see if I can get it working again.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Ok, I'll look forward to your report
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
GeorgeI dismantled the DR tonight to find that the fuse was fine and if it had been a problem, I wouldn't have been able to change it very easily as it was soldered into the PCB.I found that the the PCB outlet cable plug had shifted a small amount and by putting it back together I corrected the problem.I will rate your service shortly but I feel disappointed that you didn't have any more suggestions relevant to a DIYer and that there was no advice related to accessing the electronics on a built in dishwasher.RegardsGarth

Hello Garth, I am sitting here at my end with only my memory to instruct you of the possible parts..
I am not a teacher, I am an engineer; one who spends his time assisting people in his spare time; as I have done for you.
Removal or access of or to the electronics is self explanatory and therefore I would no mention it unless you ask.
This service relies on the questions you ask; You ask a question; I give an answer... That is the way it works. You did not ask any questions or mention that you were having any difficulty.
I am happy that you have found the issue and that the problem is solved with little or no expense.
regards
