Set drip-dry articles on B40. Took a long time to finish but I then discovered it had been drying for 95 minutes. How did the dryer get turned on?

My washing machine was probably bought in about 1996! maybe that is the problem. I have to go out in half an hour so maybe there isn`t time to try a wash

Hi Isabel, that is correct.
What you need to have done is you will need an appliance service tech to help you fix this problem as there is one of two issues happening here.
It sounds like the main control is failing but you also may just have had a power glitch that set the unit ON.
If you need help locating a good tech please let me know?
If you will rate my service to you thus far as ok or better, before closing this page, I will be able stick with you until this fixed.

Have put the machine on at C15 which shouldn`t take long. I`ll get back to you when it finishes.

Sounds good Isabel I will be here.
If that works though then it is the main control board at fault:-)
