Hi guys I'm darran I'm a domestic engineer  this sounds like a seepage into the base that is setting of the anti flood after  you start the 2nd wash    if you can switch off  pullnit out and tip it back and  water will come out   or if there is a removable front  plate remove it and see if there is any water

OK guys  tell me exactly  what's happening

Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 8 days ago.

From the moment you press start   whats happening

Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 8 days ago.

Does the door latch lock and can you hear it

Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 8 days ago.

Then does it fill

Expert:  Darran Wilkins replied 8 days ago.

Does nit then start washing

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
the unit is a slid through unit.
when we turn it on its starts to fill and will go in to fault mode the clock and another light will flash.
we then turn it off and re start the fill cycle. it then will complete the fill. and at the end again it will go in to fault mode.we then turn it of and turn it to wash cycle it will wash and rinse and the second wash will stop and fault mode.
we then turn it off and the ok for a bit. if we have no washes for it and the unit is open i mean the hood is up. it sits idle. it will in time move to fault mode.i have removed the front panel not water visible on a small build up of chemical which has turned to crystal and crumbles off on the piston pump not the pump with a turning this in it.like i said we changed the the pressure thing a few months back as it had failed.

Guys sounds again like a pressure fault  either the sensor  or the Reed switch  sensor    it can also be from what your describing can be  the wash motor faulty
