When I pull plug from wall socket and turn on water, I have no water coming in. When power is connected to wall socket it seems like something is telling inlet solenoid to open and let water in. I have checked pressure switch and pipe to ensure no debris

Thank you. This indicates the fill valve is faulty and will need replacement. Control detects the appliance needs water (due to faulty valve) hence, it keeps on filling continuously. The part is available for £27 + repair charges, to order the part please CLICK HERE. If you want to replace it yourself, this VIDEO will give you an idea on how the replacement is done.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask! I hope you enjoyed your experience with today. It has been a pleasure to assist you, have a great day.

Is there any way to test inlet valve before replacing?

Yes, you can disconnect the valve and test it with a multi-meter.

Is this done via OHms test?

You can test it for continuity, if it is open circuit then it should be replaced however, if it tests fine then I am afraid it is the control board that will need replacement.

Hi I tested solenoid and result was 460 Ohms. Seems to be fauly board. Would you agree?
Customer: replied 2 days ago.
Completed Continuity test and no beep was made on multimeter

Well, then that indicates it is open circuit and water inlet valve will need replacement.

Thank you again for visiting, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions-I am happy to help!
