Ok so holding down the P button is this resetting the machine?
Are you getting any other flashing ligths?
Is it full of water?
In holding down P it does not reset the machine, tried holding it down and pressing several times in succession !
No flashing lights with the 5 lamps on the Program side at all........only light is that of the power button.
When i turn the unit off from the power button, when putting it back on I get a single beep immediately as i press it down....
The unit is dry - i have a feeling it was caught on the drainage cycle, although the detergent had not released either
Ok try this.
Turn machine off. Then press and hold the P button and at the same time turn machine on. Keep the P button pressed in till the ligths start to flash tehn release them.
Now turn the machine off and try it again and see what happens then.
Ok if the board isnt resetting then it looks like a faulty control board. As holding the P button should reset the board. If it wont reset all it can be is a faulty control board.
What you can try is take off the front control panel and take out the control board. From there unplug the wire blocks 1 at a time and refit them and see if this cures the problem.
If not then it looks like a faulty board.
