There was a smell of burning when I opened the top but there's nothing obviously burned out - no melting that I can see. The white unit just behind the main selector looks a little blackened.
The machine was spinning or about to spin - there was no water in the drum but the washing is very wet and soapy.
It is WF02466GB/01 FD8405 602897
Yes - I think a new machine may be the best option now. Thank you.
