Thank you for the model number. If you don’t mind, please allow me a few minutes to check its schematics and then type the answer.

A1 is water fill fault, please unplug it and remove all the hoses. Then clean the inlet and drain hose and make sure it is not clogged. Please try this and let me know if you get any error codes/flashing lights: Press and hold Keylock and then Start/Pause for 5 seconds. Now all LEDs except Keylock are illuminated, press Start / Pause, check if any light is flashing. Then press Keylock and then press Keylock again to remove the previous fault. Press Power to exit and try again, please let me know how it goes.

I'm not going to do that as I'm staying in a friend's house and I don't want to mess about with their water supply. I think it will have to wait until they come back
