Hello Andrew, my name is***** you tell me; does it pump out, and spin, if you choose the spin or drain programs?

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No and no
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
If you cancel the program you are on by pressing and holding the Start button for 3 seconds, then select the spin program and press Start, does the pump operate then?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No have tried
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Then the pump is either jammed or faulty... You will need to turn the appliance off at the mains connection and unplug it, empty the machine of water, then check the filter of the pump housing to see if anything is jamming the impellor on the pump
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
nothing jamming the impellor

When the machine halts, are there any flashing lights on the fascia?

Do you have a multimeter?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Fill with water on time saver 28 mins then remains silent and time goes down and stays at 27mins
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.

Are there any lights, either flashing or still, lit on the control panel in the spin speed section?

Does the appliance tumble at all?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Do we need to get an engineer?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.

Andrew, you didn't answer to my last question...

Can you tell me if there are any lights (either flashing or still) lit on the control panel in the spin speed section when the appliance sits at 27mins? if so, which ones

And does the drum rotate at all?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The lights for temperature and spin speed stay lit. There are no flashing lights. The drum doesn't rotate
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Ok Andrew, Since you have no motor action, but the door is locking and you are getting a water feed, it sounds like you have either a failing PCB or a failed Pressure switch.. I could go further if I were in font of the appliance.. but you are going to need an engineer to call to this appliance...

If you give me your postcode, I can give you details of an engineer local to you.
