Dishwasher won't start - green light flashing


Answers :

Probably the machine is not getting any water. Just had this problem today, after a plumber had been here to fix the sink, he had turned of the water supply to the dishwasher, and forgot to turn it on again.\015\012
\015\012The mechanism for turning on and off the water supply is simply a "stick" that you can turn around. Mostly, the water is getting inside the tubes when the stick is parrallel to the tubes, and the water is stopped when the stick is not. To us, it is a red handle, just beneath the sink.
