Hi Ok are you saying the only lights lit up is the prewash, anti crease, spin and service light? If you turn it off and start a new cycle do the same lights cone on when it stops and the service light shows? Regards

Hi Ok that's great as that's the error code. The error code you have is F06 which is a motor related fault. What you need to do is remove the back panel and from there you will see the motor at the bottom. Check the wiring block to this and give the wires a tug in case theres a broken wire in the block. If the wires are fine then you need to remove the motor and at the back of the motor either side are the carbon brushes. Take them out and see if they have worn down. If so then you need to replace them and then retry the washer and fingers crossed this cures it from there and gets the washer back up and running again. So check that and see what you find. But the error code you have here is a motor related fault. Regards
