Good afternoon

I will just find the information you need. It will take a few minutes so please bear with me as it's quite busy here this afternoon.

The red/blue flashing indicates a problem in the air flow, so you need thoroughly check and clean the filter, the bin and the rest of the parts.

We have watched the video.We have cleaned the parts but haven't left them out to try for 24hrs also, we haven't washed the blue and white checked filter. We have just dusted it. Will this make a difference? Why cant the shroud be washed? We have washed it.

I see no reason not to wash the shroud, but it's 100% essential to let everything thoroughly dry out. If you have an airing cupboard, put them in there for 24 hours.

Do you think not washing the blue and white material type filter may be the problem?

Lots of things might be the problem. But I would wash all of the filters and let them dry in order to eliminate them from suspicion.
