We have a 7 year old eco-star Siemens dishwasher with it's

This answer was rated:

Hi, we have a 7 year old eco-star Siemens dishwasher with it's first fault. Water inlet symbol is on indicating possible blockage ? Have checked the obvious and all seems well. The inlet pipe is fitted with a non serviceable switch/valve and guessing this may be the problem. Water has seeped out from under the appliance and is this an indication that it now needs replacing? Any advice would be most welcome. Thank-you.

Hi, Im sorry to hear that.

Anyhow you are correct, you will need a new water inlet valve (solenoid.)

It's pretty easy to replace if you are handy and have a few basic hand tools, I will help with that as well;-)

The best place to get a new water inlet valve for that machine is:

Hi Michael,
Many thanks for your reply. I have found the part on ransomspares website but at just under £100 I think it would make more sense to replace the appliance in case the problem is more complex. Thanks again,
Kind regards,

Hey Barry you're more than welcome;-)

Have a great Sunday!
