    Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

    It is possible that water is resting in the bottom tray where I understand there is a sensor for such an event. I would suggest the best bet is to call an engineer as it is difficult for anyone on the forum to tell EXACTLY what may have been damaged- or not!
    Good luck,
    John C

Disconnect the power and let the water drain off after the door is unlocked from the inside from the bottom. Now check the door switch and confirm the continutity.
Dry off the controller and confirm that there are no traces of water present.

Machine has stopped mid wash, wash light is flashing, door locked shut


Your washer can't drain. It is holding your laundry so you can not open the door and cause the water to flood you floor. This is a safety precaution that most manufacturers have in place. You did not leave a model number so I am unable to give you further instructions. Good luck, I am here for your assistance.

Dishwasher wash light flashes


It might be helpful if you are able to identify the country where you are located. I am unable to locate any specific references to this dishwasher model on the Siemens website.
In the meantime, my observation is that the flood switch is coming on. This means the water leakage detection device that is hooked up to the dishwasher is triggering and causing the water inlet valve to shut and run the drain motor in the belief the dishwasher has flooded. These dishwashers of European origin usually have the leak detector circuits hooked to the inlet water hose. Even if the hose is crimped or crushed can cause such behaviour.

Not enough water supply F8E1 in a front load washer


Long fill error code if you have flood safe water hoses replace with regular hoses, this may sound stupid but I have seen this in the field make sure water is turned on, other possible reasons bad inlet valve or no power to valve from control, front load washers are notorious for rubbing a hole in the tube that goes to the pressure switch this switch is what tells the control to output power to the inlet valve also make sure the drain hose hasn't fallen to the floor. Quickest way to eliminate some things start with an empty washer after door locks unlocks and locks again the basket will rotate a few times then water should enter the machine fill to a level in the the basket that is barely above the bottom holes in the bottom then stop this eliminates control and inlet valve , if unit continues to fill and you get water half way up the door glass probably a hole in pressure switch tube I very seldom see a pressure switch go bad hopes this helps.

GE Dishwasher no water upon start, humming, blinking lights


Seems like the anti flood is activated when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water. The machiene does not work exept the outlet pump in this mode.

AEG Santo Fridge 3774-6KA


Check the damper between the fridge and freezer. It may be broken or frozen open. If this happens and you have a water reservoir in the fridge then it could freeze and crack - leak and then flood your house... Shut off the water supply until you get the problem fixed.
