After storing the washer year unused, I tried a Prewash

Resolved Question:

After storing the washer for one year unused, I tried a Prewash cycle yesterday and it worked fine. Today I tried a high temperature cycle and the water supply warning light came on. After re-setting m/c several times, checking filter and hose for kinks, the warning light keeps returning to on and water fails to flow.

Hi, welcome to Just answer .... have you tried to clean the water inlet valve/hose ? What happens if you run the washer on cold wash cycle only ?

I have checked the filter in the water inlet supply hose, and I have tried another Prewash cycle several times. The water supply light come on after about a minute of the machine being turned on. The inlet hose is fitted with an electrical device immediately downstream of the connection flange. Is this a valve or a clever water quality device. Even so I have disconnected this electrically and it made no difference to the problem.

OK Thanks for that ... so it wont even start to fill when you select COLD WASH ONLY cycle ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No the device is Siemens se26t252uk dishwasher. I have reset the device using the control functions ( button A and C pressed together) which eliminates the warning light. BUt after a minute on a new cold wash cycle, the warning light returns and there is no filling of water. Can you advise precisely what this problem is. Could it be a water supply shut off valve. If so where is it in the machine? Nick
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 10 months ago.

Nick, with the dishwasher unplugged pull it out and tilt it backwards by around 45 degrees... see if excess water drains off then try again, if the problem is still there then remove the base plate and the side panel to gain excess to the water flow system...after that clean everything and make sure pressure switch is in upright position..if not then you will have to replace the water inlet valve

Kevin
Your remedy has worked and I have now run two cycles successfully after tilting it and draining the water as you suggested. I now realise that when I cleaned the interior with a hose some water must have found its way into the sump and that's what shut the supply down.Thanks very much for the advice.
Best regards
Nick
