Hi the model number is XXXXX
I selected short spin (letter K) and the machine took in water.
It does have a mechanical timer. The timer isn't loose but it will turn anticlockwise with quite some resistance
No, don't force it.
I just want to know if there's slack in it where it turns forward and backward a bit without turning the timer.
The fault you describe is normally caused by this.
Watch the part that shows the program you are on when you turn the knob forward and backward.
Just to check, I was talking about the mechanical timer knob. Should I be checking the program knob?
No, the program knob won't turn anticlockwise and isn't loose
But if that is the case why would the filter by full of water? We emptied it once and then after the 'spin' cycle that filled with water the filter was full of water again
I just tried to take the knob off, but it won't come off
OK, thank you. Do you know if it would be an expensive repair if the programmer is out of sync?
