Hi. No the water was not hot and it still has water in the machine but I had to switch it off to stop it. Think the pump is working though. Regards Sean

Ok Sean, if the heater doesn't heat the water the program will not move forward..

You need to take off the right hand side of the appliance and check the heater and the thermostats with a multimeter...

You can also do this by removing the base-panel of this appliance
