Hotpoint dishwasher float switch

Can anyone tell me where the float switch is in a Hotpoint First Edition dishwasher (its an older model ...no fancy flashing lights) I have read that it is in the base under the plate rack ....can you tell me what it looks like.
We have moved the dishwasher and it just won't take in water, works fine if you manually put water in so its not the programme control.
It was working fine before we moved it...we did lie it on its back...would that cause it....have searched the forum but just can't seem to find the answer.
Any help very much appreciated.

Thank you for the reply....unfortunately no there are no numbers.
Under the heater element there is a small grey plate ..... might this be the
float switch ?

No it's not, tip the dishwasher back is there a base plate on it ,water should come out of the base. The float switch is a polystyrene disc in the inside of the base. If you have no base on it Ie you can see the works inside then the black tube needs cleaning
