I have a aeg lavamat 11842 VIT. It sometimes has a problem

Resolved Question:

I have a aeg lavamat 11842 VIT. It sometimes has a problem switching on. I turn the power on at the wall and it usually pings and lights up immediately. But, sometimes (about 1 in 5 recently) it does not ping and no lights come on. Turning off/on makes no difference. Leaving it turned on at the wall it will eventually ping and turn on. Sometimes in a minute, sometimes in 5/10 minutes.
Any ideas?
Regards, Sandy
