What is the model number of your appliance, and how old is it?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Thanks for your is built in the kitchen and couldn't find the model number on it. I think it is more than 12 years old.

Based on the symptoms you have outlined it's likely the fault is caused by the flood sensor located in the base detecting water. To resolve the issue you need to switch off the appliance at the wall and pull it out of the cupboard void. Once removed you need to tilt the washer at a steep angle forward and hold it in place for around 1 minute, stand the appliance back up, and then turn on the power. You should now be able to run a new program to confirm the fault has cleared, should the fault not clear then the sensor is most likely at fault, should the fault come back after a wash then there is a leak causing water to get back into the base, and in either case the next stage would be to book in a service engineer to attend.
