, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.Can you tell me if the appliance is heating the water?
It doesn't get the opportunity. The knob turns back to start within seconds.
Does it start to fill... Tell me exactly what it does once you press start
I've had the problem , initially only sporadically, then more frequently, and eventually every time, so I've not used the machine while. Problem varies, but usually as soon as press start, the knob turns to end of cycle within 3-4 secs, with no other noticeable action. Other times it completes a short cycle, without heating the water. I tried it tonight on Programme 2 (Main Wash 90C), and it rotated quickly to 5, then began filling and completed a short cycle (30 mins) without heating. It went to end of cycle without draining/spinning. I tried putting it back to spin A (Full Spin) and it went to end without spinning. So I tried spin B (Short Spin) and it drained and rinsed but did not spin. In summary, it either doesn't work at all, or does an incorrect/unheated cycle and doesn't spin. Sorry it's not consistent/straightforward.
I would have a look at the tacho on the motor .. Check to see if it is fractured.. Also check leaks from the element using an insulation tested as both of these faults would cause these types of faults
How did you get on?
