Thanks for that, Lets see what the error code is stored in there.

Turn the washer on to any cycle apart from the first on the right.

Then press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it.

Keep them held in and after a few seconds the end light and start light will be flashing. You need to count the number of flashes from each light in between the pause and let me know.

Ok 5 flashes is a motor related fault. This will be either the carbon brushes in the motor, the motor itself or the control board.

The most common cause is worn carbon brushes in the motor. What you need to do is remove the back panel in the washer and make sure its unplugged.

Then from there you can remove the motor from the bottom of the drum.

There at the back either side are the carbon brushes.

Remove these and see if they have worn. If so then you need to replace them and that should cure the fault from there.

But if the brushes are fine then its either the motor itself of the control board is the fault here. But either of these are very expensive as you are looking at over the £150 mark for either of them.

So check the carbon brushes in the motor first if you can and see what you find from there.
