Hi I Have a LAVAMAT L 16850 which is about 4 years old. The wash cycle was interrupted, my wife thought that it had finished but can't remember seeing any error codes. The machine would not restart . I drain and emptied it now if I try to rum a cycle a bar appears under the main wash indicator then the lamp above the start button flashes. If pressed again an 'err' is momentarily displayed.
Any ideas?
If you turn the dial to off and then select the spin only cycle and press start what actually happens?
Will the door actually lock?
Do you hear any humming noises?

HiIf I turn the dial from off to spin only a bar appears momentarily under the spin symbol. Door does not lock and no noise of any kind can be heardBob
Ok try this and see what happens.
Turn the dial to off.
Press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it.
Keep them both held in and turn the dial 1 click clockwise.
Keep the buttons held in till the lights start to flash then let go.
Now turn the dial 9 clicks clockwise.
Now the start light will be flashing.
Count the number or red flashes and then the number of green flashes and let me know.
Then turn the washer off then on then back off again.

HiOK 6 green 6 red 3 beep and E66 code. The machine started. I turned it off and selected spin only and it drained and the gave 3 beeps. I tried to select spin again now back to square oneBob
Thanks for that. Im afraid this isn't good news here. As when you get E66 fault the only thing that will cause this is the control board itself. To cure this the control board behind the panel will need to be replaced. This will be why its not starting. Ive seen this error quite a few times and its always the control board itself that causes this. Sorry its not good news but this is 100% the control board at fault here. Regards
