Our Currys dishwasher wont start and it sounds like the water is not getting in. The water light is illuminating. Model CDW60W16/A.
JA: Who makes your dishwasher? How old is it?
Customer: IT IS A CURRYS OWN BRAND. AROUND 2 YEARS OLD I THINK.
JA: How long has this been going on with your dishwasher? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Going on around 10 days. Ive switched off, checked the water pressure, checked the filter and added salt but no difference.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Never been totaly happy with it as frequently left undissolved tablet but that seems ok now. Our water is soft so no issues with deposit build-up
Firstly, check it is has a 2 year warranty and you may still be covered.
If not then it could be your filling solenoid and we may have to do some basic electrical checks with a multimeter

While I was waiting for your reply I decided to give it another go just for fun and would you believe it it has started however I wonder if there is an intermittent fault with the solenoid. Perhaps we should see how it goes and if it happens again then have a look at it. Is it easy to access the works?
No problem.
It is just under the top cover - 2 screws at the rear of the cover and slides backwards and off.
