Hello, my name is George..
What is the E-nr of the appliance; this can be found etched into the metal at the top of the door.
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

The E-nr number is *****
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
The tap is instructing you that there is an obstruction to the appliance getting water..
The fault could be one of a few thing and I'll list some below for you to check:
Supply tap turned off
Mains Water supply interrupted
Aqua-stop Supply hose kinked
Water filter in the end of the Aqua-stop supply hose blocked
Failure of the Aqua-stop supply hose
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Where would the aqua-stop supply hose located
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
The Aqua-stop supply hose is the main inlet hose behind the appliance that is attached to your water supply.
If you turn off the water supply using the tap on the pipe, then unscrew the Aqua-stop, there is usually a filter in the end of it that can become blocked.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The red filter in that pipe has been checked and is clear

Then you will need to investigate the condition of the inlet valve and the flow meter which are located behind the left hand side panel.
