Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

There can be several causes. If you want to start a program now, for example, do you hear noises that the expiry finds is working? It is also possible that the door contact switch does not react at the moment and does not recognize that the door is closed. Please open and close the door several times and finally press firmly and try to start a program again.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
With best regards,

Worked eventually after opening and closeing the door several times and pressing the buttons several times. So simple realy.

Did I understand correctly that the device works? It is possible that the door contact switch did not react. It could also be that a programme was not yet finished. Please write to me if you need any further information.

I need help now. If you can't help then I shall return it to the supplier. Tell me why it wont work after being switched on, programme selected and nothing happens! The Active light is on the salt and rinse lights are on. Programme 65 deg selected and no other activity. Should not occur with brand new machine so the least you can do is investigate. The programme last night was not interrupted, nor should I be paying for repairs to a brand new machine.
