How much water is in the tank? The early LED panels sense when the tank is very low and disable the pump by removing power to it. If you have 4 LEDs on the left column and the 2 lower ones are both RED, you may have this model of panel.

There are at least 4 different LED panels for the Westy kitchen. The 80+81 models are the most likely to have the water pump power cut-off circuit. The later models did away with this feature and used the lower left LED (green) for fridge pilot light indication. The early panels either had no pilot LED or had a red LED alone near the center of the panel.

If you have the early type panel and no power to the pump even when the water tank is not empty then the panel may have a fault. I just bypass the tank empty logic and enable power to the pump all the time like the newer panels. The tank level sensor circuits often get flakey with age.
