Thanks for reply.
Machine not tripping power now, no fault code displayed though.
Machine does nothing on any cycle, it will count down so put on drain cycle which is only 2 minutes to see what would happen. In short nothing, once it has counted down end light flashes continuously and does not release door. Only way to release door is to turn off main power.
I did replace the door lock as this was initially at fault. With the top off the machine you could hear it buzzing faintly as it tried to release. The only way to get the old lock off was to break it in two in situ as it was never going to release.
Once off though with the top off the electric part of the mechanism I could see that part of the switch inside had come away and welded itself to another part. Hard to explain without being able to send you a picture of it. This short may have been what caused the power trip in the first place.
Interestingly I did also check the harness and there was no obvious damage on it.
Will order the wiring harness that goes from the lock to the ECU and also check the motor brushes.
Just as a question though would, as the lock light comes on I thought the system would know that the door was locked? Would a fault on the harness still cause the machine not to work even with the lock light on?
Many thanks for that.
I had in my mind that the main control board may have been damaged when the machine first went wrong. It would make sense if the door lock caused a short circuit.
I did take it off to see if there was anything obvious on the outside casing but will inspect it more thoroughly and order a refurbished board.
Appreciate all your advise here so thanks for your time.
Will let you know the outcome!

Could this be a duff board?
