This is difficult to diagnose especially as it has been condemmed by your Insurance cover.The normal cause for these dishwashers to not let in water is an airlock.Now if you know a bit about DIY you could have a go.Firstly remove the kicking board from the bottom of kitchen unit then remove the metal plate across the bottom of dishwasher in between legs.You will have to prise this off with a screw driver it does not have to have the screws refitted it can just be pushed back into its groove.Make sure the unit is switched off.Inside the unit towards the left hand side is a press. switch with a small clear nylon pipe on it and a couple of wires,its round about 2" can pull the whole thing forward to you it is sort of clipped on to body of unit.When you can get at it undo small wire clip off pipe then prise pipe off switch hopefully this will expel any air trapped.Refit pipe and switch and try again if that does not cure it then you have to pull out the dishwasher to get to the water inlet at the rear of the unit.undo the water pipe (water off first).Remove the screws from the plastic panel around the valve and the screws holding the valve in,pull plastic plate out of way and alongside the valve you will find a pink nylon tube with a white plastic bung in the end gently pull out bung and you should get water out of pipe onto towel.When empty put in bung and refit all now reconnect water and try.If that does not cure it then you do have a more serious problem.

Hope I have Helped.

Good Luck.

Any gas appliance that has been submerged or subjected to water, should be inspected by a certified gas heating technician. It's not a DIY project. In my own personal experience of having been in the supplemental gas heating appliance business for 15 years, 95% of all gas appliances that have been submerged in water are not safely salvageable. It's the unseen, that can come back to bite you.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

F 13 fault code

You will be able to fix this, it will take about 2 hours.Buy two thermostats for £10 from a 'local' repair shop.These components look rather like cylindrical bits of plastic wearing tin hats but one is twice the size of the other, the larger being about 2 cm in diameter, and they DON'T look identical. The part numbers (for my WD860) are: HPT 1605 160 and HPT 1604 802.

1. You’ll need to use a combination of finesse and brut force to get the lid off of the machine. It is secured by two screws at the rear but has troublesome plastic hooks inside, half way down either side, that stop the lid from riding up at the front. The process is to remove the screws and then pull back and up to ‘unhook’ the internal brittle plastic hooks. I found this scary and difficult, cracking sounds were off putting and I did break to tips of the plastic hooks a little but they still seem to work ok. Be careful and wiggle it gently from side to side is the only advice I can offer.

2. Once inside it gets a bit easier. You should be able to see a metal snail-shaped object bolted to the top of the drum with various electrical connections – this is the dryer and within it are the two thermostats. What you’ve got to do is remove/unplug all the electrical connections from the top dryer, of course, make a diagram first as you’ll need to put them all back after. You then need to unbolt/unscrew the top half of the dryer and remove this from the machine – this is another fiddley bit and I was lucky again here to have a very small ratchet socket set which made the hard to get to bolts/screws accessible. Note: some of the screws are the Torx type (imagine a more complex Phillips’s type screw). You’ll need to have a Torx type screw driver head that’ll fit the small socket tool to undo these.

3. Once the top of the dryer unit is off, you just need to remove the thermostats – one is fixed in by screws on the outside of the dryer top and the other is fixed in by screws on the inside. Screw in the replacement thermostats, then clean off the fluff and burnt fluff from both halves of the dryer and you’re there – put the machine back together.

Gas boiler cuts out after about 60 seconds

It may be fixable but any work done on any gas appliance must be done by a properly qualified person and in the UK must be Gas Safe registered. I am not nor do I claim to be so registered, this is for information only.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
