I have a power tester stick that when placed next to a power source it illuminates, with 240v supplied to the machine and the top off there is power to the rear of the (Control Unit Wave Eco K1 Tf Basic) and if I open the door there are a couple of wires that have power switched on and off when you open and close the door. this indicates to me that power is to some components and is being supplied to the control unit.
Hi Thanks for you help and the advice on British gas etc is good advice, could I ask you to identify which wire should have the neutral supply just so I know I have tested correctly. If the control board is at fault I will probably purchase a new machine. this whirlpool has only lasted 2 and a half years, would you advise me on a machine that would give best value and above average cost( not bargain basement and not Rolls Royce). Thanks
