Can you post the model number please.
Also have you checked the fuse in the plug?
Hi the model number is ***** 1261 w and i havent been able to check the plug yet as my partner is away for the weekend i havent got a crosshead screwdriver
Ok the fist thing you need to do is check the fuse . As to be honest just pushing the washer backwards wont have really done much in the washer. As if theres no power its either the power supply, mains suppressor, loose wiring or the control board.
Now im taking it you have plugged the washer into another socket to make sure its not that socket?
If that's fine then when you are able to remove the fuse from the plug and replace it and see if that cures it.
If not then you need to remove the top of the washer and from there check for any loose wiring blocks and refit it.
As if it was working until you just pushed it back then its possibley either the fuse or loose wiring connection in the washer. But for either of these you will need a few tools to get into the washer.
Just get back to me once you have checked the above and let me know what you find.
