Hi Edmund,

I assume you have checked the fuse in the washing machine, when you say there is power to the machine?

If there is no power at all, and the unit is completely dead, this would suggest a PCB failure, a replacement can be found here.

As such the cost of the replacement part I would make this an uneconomical repair, and would look to put the money towards a replacement machine.

Should you to proceed with repair and arrange an engineer to attend, please provide me with your postcode so I can recommend someone in your area.

Regards

Hi James thanks for coming back. I'm an engineer myself, would this part need programing? Also there is the top panel pcb, could this also be the problem? There is definitely power in the machine
Expert:  JamesI replied 8 months ago.

You can buy pre-programmed control boards these are often more expensive.

If your have worked with washers in the past as an engineer, you should be able to check where the power is getting to with a multi meter, this should help verify which of the two PCB's are at fault.

The part I quoted was the more expensive of the two, but it could really be either, however there are no fuses in the circuit so should be reasonably straight forward with the power on following where the circuit fails.

From experience when it comes to PCB faults its always worth going via a repair and protect plan as the plan is cheaper than the parts in most cases, and it can save you hours of fault finding.
