Hi machine stays onwash continuesly no prob with water or heating David

Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 7 days ago.

What do you mean by washing? Does only the lower pump run permanently? Or is there water in the appliance and the rinsing pump circulates continuously? You have to give me a little more detailed information so that I can help you better.

The main pump runs continuesly when door is closed David
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 7 days ago.

There are two different reasons for such a mistake. It is possible that the dirt water sensors or level sensors are still registering a water message and thus the drain pump is working permanently. Or there is a leak somewhere and the Aqua stop was triggered. Have you already looked into the bottom of the floor pan? To do so, however, you must remove the rectangular cover underneath the door so that you can look into the bottom of the floor pan.

The water level sensors are working because it stops filling after while the pump concerned is main pump back of machine. Where is aqua stop how to fix David
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 7 days ago.

It is located at the bottom of the base tray. To do this, open the lower rectangular cover where you can access the Aqua stop or float switch. As I said before, this is one of the reasons that could make such a mistake. But if the water is introduced and the rinsing process has started and is not permanent, it is possible that a wrong temperature registration can also cause this error.
