Customer Question

Hi , I have an Indesit IWE 91480 Washing Machine which had a defective Water inlet Valve which was leaking. The valve assy was subsequently replaced. After repair I now have no power indications on the main machine viewing panel. Checked the mains 13 amp fuse as User Manual suggested, reset the mains switch on the front panel foe the suggested 3 seconds and still now power indications. Checked that mains power is apparent on the power inlet module mounted at the top inside the rear of the machine. Are there any more fuses inside modules within the machine?
Cheers, ***** *****

Hi Michael,Washing Machine is just 3 years old. The no power issue was apparent before the replacement of the water inlet valve. The machine was thoroughly dried out with warm air before the replacement valve was fitted. No leaks are now visible with the replacement fitted and syptoms advised are unchanged. Thought that there possibly may be an unsighted fuse for the lower voltages required for the Control Module for supply of the indicators etc (which module would supply these voltages and where would that be fitted on the machine?. I cannot see any interlocks which may cause loss of the lower voltage requirement.
