I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient with us as these are technical questions and some testing may be required.
It may take a bit of back and forth conversation to be sure we have all the information in order to make a proper diagnosis.
How old is your dishwasher?
Also what light is flashing?
Thank you

Hi Michael
The dishwasher is between 1 year old and 18 months. Never been used
The flashing light it's the bottom of four lights its also one of the program lights
In the manual it says it can either flash slow moderate or fast to identify different problems
I've checked water supply and it also empties
Thanks for that information.
This could be the float. Does it just fill and then drain and thats all?
please be specific.
Thank you

Yes it seems to just fill and pump out no washing
I did try tipping it on its side in case any water in the tray but couldn't detect and surplus water
Thank s for that.
This sounds like a bad or stuck float.
Please look at the bottom inside to see if you can locate that part.
It stands to reason when these dishwashers sit for a period of time that this can easily happen.
Please check this, I will stick with you until this is fixed and we will get this fixed. But since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you XXXXX
