Just found this whilst looking for known issues with my machine as the cold water won't stop when filling.

Before you do anything else..UNPLUG it from the 240volt supply ! Read ALL of this before attempting the fix. After draining out the water, lay the machine down to expose the inner workings. You'll need to find the pressure switch which is connected by an thin rubber or plastic tube from the wash tub. Check that it is is properly connected.(YOu may have to cut off a little of each and to give you a an "as new" airtight sealed fitting. A little smear of quikgrip glue around the nozzle at each end will ensure a longlife airtight fit of the tubing.) BUT before you do the final glueing and fitting of the tube. Just have the tube at the pressure switch nozzle connected and BLOW into it. You should hear an audible click when blowing and relesing the air. Even if you hear this, it only confirms that the diaphragm in the pressure switch is ok. It does not tell you if the two way switch inside it of good integrity. By integrity I mean the condition of the switching CONTACTS, As they carry high current, they eventually burn and pit and can become of such HIGH resistance to the flow of current that there is none when the switch is in fact physically in the on position. Further advice from me can be had by accessing the PAYG "Let our Experts Solve YOur Problem" FixYa Link.

like the anchor idea?, no sorry, this does sound like the water is not getting to the machine, so, when you turn the machine on does it make a slight buzzing noise, if so the fault is no water in the pipes to the machine (from the house), if no buzzing check the solenoids with a multimeter for open circuit (removing the 2 wires first) oh and the plug obviously / replace solenoid if needed, i am sure this will cure your problem, if so rate me please, thank you

You don't open the rear panel. This is a typical symptom of a lid switch problem. The link below will explain how to access it. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (Part number 3949238).

I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.

IE is a water inlet error...meaning that the correct water level was not achieved within 8 minutes or it did not reach preset water level within 25 minutes...
CL is child lock feature which can be toggled on and off by by holding the Pre wash button in for 3 seconds.. Hope that helps...
