the machine from the electrical supply by removing the plug from the wall socket.
Check that all seals, seams and connections are watertight.

features it may have. Therefore it is advisable always to turn off the water supply tap when the machine is not in use.
Check the following before calling a repairman:
• Dishwasher fails to start.
• Water not discharged at end of cycle.
• Dishes not washed satisfactorily.
• Dishes dull or streaky.
