Hi, thank you for that information.

Please try one thing so I can rule out a simple glitch.

Turn off power to your dishwasher at the mains for 30 full minutes.

Then turn it back on, llet me know exactly what it does before you turn t on, and then when you turn it on if possible?

Thank you

Turned on machine at wall. Then pressed Power Switch. 1 beep and all lights on Control Panel come on and off briefly. Then 30 bleeps while Eco light flashes accompanied by On/Off light and salt refil light remain on. Could be salt refil, but in past machine would still work even if salt refil indicator was on.

Hi sometimes they will get stuck (hung up if the salt is either empty or caked up.

These machines wont always respond this way and will sometimes work for a white without salt etc, its only when the computer on the main board realizes this and halts operations.

I would try re filling the salt with the power turned off at the main.

If that doesn't help, please let me know and I will advise you what else needs to be done to fix your dishwasher.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.
