The washing machine is 3 years old
It is a Hotpoint 7kg echo tech wml730 aquarius+
The console has the wash light on and the door lock light on. Also there is a clicking noise as if the machine is going to start its cycle

How much longer do I have to wait
Hi sorry for that delay. I am here.
Can you tell where about you hear the clicking sound from? Is it near the door lock?Or more from the controls?

Thanks for that, in this case, your control panel has failed. There are relays on that board that will eventually fail. They are not replaceable by themselves so the only way to fix this is to replace the control panel.Its easy to do and I will help all the way.There is no soldering required just a bunch of plug in connectors, but I woudl take a few pis of them before you remove them form the old board so you are sure where each one goes back ;-)
The best place to get a new control board is: best to call to order this part because they dont list all parts on site.Please call: Ransom Spares:0844(###) ###-####I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.
