Hello Mike, my name is George..

Is water collecting in the drawer with the softener?

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi George,

No, only the softener is left. I have taken the drawer apart and all channels are open and clean

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Ok Mike, Can you tell me if your model has one or teo water inlets?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Single cold water feed to machine

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Sorry for the delay in answering.. Have a look at the valves behind the inlet.. Use a multeter to check the resistance across the terminals of each solenoid. Let's know what readings you get.
My presumption is that you have a faulty solenoid.
