Found the problem after stripping down around the main pump area.
The air pipe connected to the pressure switch on the front right hand side is connected to a small plastic box which in turn is connected to the flow pipe that fills the machine,and the box was completely blocked with slug which stopped the pressure switch from operating and so prevented the water input solenoid from opening. Hence no water would come into the machine

Couple of things that come to mind here... May be helpful or not - but after all this is free ifo and probably worth what you are paying!!!
1: Have you tried removing power from the appliance?? All these modern appliances use a microprocessor and - like MS WINDOWS - need a kick up the bum now and then - (Well.. with Windows it seems to be every day- hour -minute - or so)
2: Dishwashers are installed with water reduction valves, so there could be a problem with one of there (particularly the hot water side).
3: The water inlet is controlled by soleniod valves (read: electronic valves). If the valves are not opening, no water will enter the appliance, so there could be a problem with the valves.

SOURCE: Faulty dishwasher.
several poss faults tap turned on? if so probably the unit needs to have the meter tank and feed piping cleaned out. if this is all clean then it could be either the water valve is faulty or you have a leak into the base and the unit will not fill up when it is in "flood mode". (check this out by tipping machine to the side and see if any water pours from the base).

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

using FixYa. If the dishwasher is overfilling it's caused
because of water-inlet valve going bad. This valve is usually at the bottom
left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device
with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and
two wires attached to it. If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to
completely replace it. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment
