it was over easter  - i think a wooden spoon got stuck perhaps it hindred the rotational arm in moving...hmmm... now its may
anyhow i now have the delight of my single (!) DD603 i (it is white) starting, humming for a minute and then beeping (once a second) and flashing a sign which is a small tap with a line over it (presumably no water). And when i open - yes it is all dry.
But, i have checked and the water tap is open! aslo, i have read my brugsanvigning (a slender volume but i guess the danish equivalent of manual) and it tells me it is a u1 fault (to which i have found no reference on this site). this is then called a filling-up-the-maching fault - and i am asked to check 1) the water is on (it is), 2) that the arm can move freely (it should - the machine is empty) and 3) that the waterblock might me triggered if installed - i dont knwo what this means...:)
help help - please - do you know this at all?

thank you samuraioramas

It may be a bad Water Valve...

If you could measure the voltage at the Valve ( 24v DC ) while it should be filling ....

What's wrong with the other half of the DD603 ?

If you have a DD603, this stands for "double dishdrawer". If you only have a single dishdrawer, it is called a DS603. In any event, you could measure the voltage to the fill valve while filling if you operate the fill valve in diagnostic mode, because the door does not need to be closed in order to test the functions. The drawer can be removed from the machine and placed on a good support outside of the machine. Then you can access the fill valve while the valve is supposed to be engaged. Of course you know there are lethal voltages present in the machine, and that the unit should be disconnected from the power supply while you're poking around in there getting your bearings. Once you get the cover off the electrics in the bottom of the unit and you have identified the fill valve, you could probe these wires for voltage while the machine is supposed to be filling. But be bloody careful as you will be very close to where the mains power supply comes in - everything is open under that cover! If you are at all uncomfortable with climbing into a metal box which is supplied by mains electricity and is known to not be operating correctly, please leave the diagnosis and repair to a qualified repair technician. I fear I may have said too much already. Get yourself the service manual and the parts manual first thing, please.
