Are there any lights flashing on the right hand side?

Yes, all three ***** *****ghts flash after about 30 seconds also the twa red lights start flashing at the same rate if you wait long enough

Sorry I've been away for a while..
LED 1, 2 & 3 down the right side indicates that the module has detected no turbine rotation
Check wiring between turbine and module.
Check Turbine rotation

Can I ask if the above has solved the problem for you, or if not, do you require further assistance?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Wiring seems OK trying a new turbine, maybe off load ie not actually pumping water it revolves but on load it not pumping strong enough. Could be worn brushes but there appears no way into the motor to check them. Thanks for the help
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
The turbine motor used is a synchronous motor and they are not repairable.
Is there any power to the turbine?
Check the pressure switch..
The module checks state of the Pressure Switch.
- if Pressure Switch Full Position reached - Programme Continues to Wash.
- if Pressure Switch at Empty Position, fills with a maximum of 5.5 litres of water measured by Fill Turbine.
If the Pressure Switch is still in the Empty Position, the machine will drain and continues with the cycle. No Fault Code will be displayed.
The Water Level in normal conditions is almost up to the top of the filter.
