Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries
OK this will be one of two things, either the door lock is faulty and you will need to replace it or the main facia pcb has been damaged by the door lock having become faulty. How handy are you with a screw driver?
o/k you are talking to a sparkey,, but not on site where the washer is
Excellent, before you replace anything just try this, these door locks are just a positive and negative supply and a positive feed through to the main facia pcb, they are made of plastic and wear quite often, so first thing to do is get some WD40 and spray it into the door catch hole, then slam the door. If the washer now works then youre good to go but will need to change the door lock fairly soon, part number is(###) ###-#### ***** however this doesn't work what has happened is that the lock has shorted out and has likely blown a track off the pcb. Take the top off and you can see it behind the facia, you will need a Torx20 two screws at the front behind little caps push back and lift it off. Then you can see the board and any damage. If this is damaged I have a company that will refurb it for you at a reasonable price and guarantee there work ~ have you got that sofar ~ Ian

Would you now rate my service which allows me to shut down this job but also allows you to ask further questions at no extra cost to you ~ you can ping me on here and we can continue if the above does not solve your problem ~ Ian
I will not be going on site till 2 : 30. this afternoon, how will I contact you later today
Just come back on here I am here up until 4pm and then back on at 6pm ~ as I said before if you rate the service the system allows us to have free question and answer service until you sort out the problem to your satisfaction.
did what you said ....no joy... took top off, look at the switch, unscrewed it of the front, unclipped the back and pressed the contact,s and away the washer worked (door light stopped flashing and it stared to fill up with water. Put it all together and the door lock started to flash again ,like before.. The make of the switch is METALFLEX. ZV-446. M4. T85, 240 V.
As mentioned earlier you need to change the switch, once faulty the slightest vibration will cause it to fail and if you aren't careful will cause it to blow the module pcb to bits. They only cost about £5 whilst the board will set you back about £60. Would you now kindly rate my service with the smiley faces below so I can close the job down but give you access to further information free of charge ~ Ian

HOPE THIS IS THE RIGHT ANSWER,S..... DAVID
I think the pcb may be damaged at this point but have you got a multimeter with you?
YES, But not on site ,can go later,,
what do you want me to measure will it be d,v volts
not looked at the board yet ... I think the two white cable want changing over to suit this new switch
Do not alter the cablesThe cables are the same for both switches...
But I do need you to let me know if the chip on the board is damaged
will look on Friday....thanks
right... no voltage at all on any wirers.. put one test lead on the black ,other on white = no volts , put it on other white = no volts, put both test leads across the white no = no volts THEN I put on test lead to earth ( frame of washer ) one to white got volts
cannot see any damage without getting the facie off ,,then the board out thanks.. the washer still works o/k , but door will not lock , due to no volts, and when it has finshed the end light does not come on
Correct orientation of plug for interlock depending on type
good morning George.. hope you are well..
busy day on Saturday...
back to the washer... thanks for your help .. the lady can not afford the prices of a new board before Christmas, is o/k with the washer as it is.. In the new year I will take the board out and check it over... BY THE WAY I CAN NOT SEE ANY IMAGE WHAT YOU SENT ME , IT WILL NO OPEN...
