This sounds really daft...how do I take the left side panel off?
Screws? Slide off?
Side panel now off!
What does a pressure chamber looked like when it's blocking up?
Which one in the picture is the "pressure chamber" please?
Turned the water and electricity back on and closed the door...
...still the same problem!
The larger tank looks really blocked in the top-left hand corner; would this be affecting things at all?
When I switched the machine back on, water circulated around the large tank, through the pressure chamber, but the orange (plastic tube looking) float hasn't moved.
No, red rod is in the "down" position i.e. switch has NOT been triggered.
Should I take a photo of the gunk in the larger tank for your inspection?
The tubes are faintly labelled 1 to 4, with 1 being closest to the rear of the machine.
Tubes 1,2 + 4 seems to have water going through them.
Tube 3 - which has a blue hose with a clamp on it - it's hard to tell if any water is going through.
Lifted the red rod and dropped it a few times...this seem to partially drain the water from tubes 4+5.
Still the same though...
If tube 3 shows no water coming in, then where is the water coming from that is circulating around the other tubes?
Also, how do I access the main control board?
How much is a new one please?
Hiya,It's residual water.It's not circulating, it's simply being moved.Pour water into the machine manually.Then start it, you'll see it getting pumped out then it will be back to what you see now.
If it starts washing, let me know.
Control board is in the facia and costs around £100
I tried the machine with the mains water turned off...almost all the water in the tubes drained away.
Then I switched the water back on and a torrent came circulating around the tubes...does that still mean that no water is getting in?
Yes, water is in the pressure chamber.
Checked the wiring; as in original photo.
Yes - lever is flat against the circular part.
I manually filled the tub with 5 cms of water (the maximum before it started to spill out the sides), closed the door and it's all drained away.
Everytime I switch the power on/off, the water always seems to drain away.
I can't cancel this dreaded program/sequences.
None of the buttons respond, and all the LEDs are out!!!
Sorry to have wasted your time.
Any advice about the main board please?
