It starts to fill with water but stops for some reason then starts beeping
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The dishwasher is fitted into the kitchen units and it's been like that since we bought the place so it looks like we inherited the problem from the previous owner

Hello?
I’m here
I’m looking for the literature on that machine

Hi Tamar
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thank you
Usually H has something to do with inlet water problem.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Can you recommend anything I can try?
There is no water in the mains supply.
• The water inlet hose is bent (see Installation).
• Turn on the tap and the appliance will start after a few minutes.
• The appliance lock has been activated because no action was taken when the beeps sounded.
Switch off the machine using the ON/OFF button, turn on the tap and switch the machine back on after a few seconds by pressing the same button. Re-program the appliance and restart the wash cycle.
This is what the manual lists off. If this doesn’t work for you there may be a problem with the pump or inlet solenoid valve
Let me know your thoughts or concerns

Hi Tamar. I tried all of those but I can’t see if the water inlet hose is bent as the dishwasher is fitted in to the units. Any suggestions?
I was afraid that’s the case. It would require you doing some disassembly to get at the hose
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Is that a simple job?
Can you send me a photo of the dishwasher
Customer: replied 7 months ago.

another. Is there anything in particular that you need to see?

The dashboard
Give me a few moments

Is there a bottom panel that can come off? If not it would just have to be pulled out.
