Hi
Ok by doing the reset by turning the dial did it clear the code?
Is it coming back straight away?
Also F43 is a motor related fault so have you found the cause of the fault already before trying to reset it?
Regards

Tried again and that cleared the fault code. I suspect it's the brushes. It's 6 years old I've worked out. Guarantee expired, thanks I'll prob keep it trundling along and buy a new one in the sales!

Its more then likely the brushes here. If you are handy at diy then its not that bad to replace. You need to remove the motor from the back of the washer and the brushes are locate at the back of the motor. Replace them and that will cure it from there. This will be a lot cheaper then a new washer as these are a decent manchine. If you need anymore info just get back to me. Regards
