Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - could you tell me the number of flashes as this gives me an error code. You should get a number of flashes followed by a gap and then the same number of flashes again.

Hi.It gives 7 flashes then a gap.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
It's a flow meter failure.
You have a flow meter fault. You need to carry out the following ##
Unplug the machine from the wall socket.
Take the left hand panel off (looking from front).
Looking at it from the side, at the bottom right of the plastic fill chamber you'll see a water wheel, disconnect the plug from this, clean the contacts on the small pcb, tighten the connections on the plug and plug it back on.
Reassemble the machine. Plug it back into the wall socket, reset it and try a program again.
If that doesnt work you will need to replace the flow meter that the component with the wheel.
