The machine fills ok but
Will not launch a wash cycle or spin.
Cuts out with a "Click" sound
Control lights go off
Then the following sequence repeats
>Wash light on
>Door light on
>Cuts out with a "Click" sound
(The Click sound is like an electrical breaker or isolator switch)I originally thought this was overloading but beginning to think it's something else.
The drum gradually started to turn through more revolutions over time.
I thought the imbalance was settling down.If this is electronics then I may be flogging the proverbial dead horse.
Better to know if I'm wasting my time.
Dead horse Yes\No ?
