UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi can you give me the PNC number from the rating label inside the door frame.
OK do you get an error code when it beeps? Secondly do you have any water in the base of the cabinet, not the wash cavity but below it?
No but if you get a slight leak the flood protection device will activate and stop the appliance operating.
Take it out, lean it on its back and pop the base off, check to see if you have water or water staining in the base pan.
OK should be having a break at 4 - 6 but then back online
Do you have a multimeter?
OK grab the multimeter and come back to me on Friday and we can go through it.
OK just delivering the wife to work be back about 11am
OK first thing disconnect the supply to the solenoid and test to see if you have got 240 volts at the solenoid at the fill point.
Any water going in?
OK so you have water going into the water softener but not from the water softener to the wash tank?
OK you need to check the coil resistance on the solenoids on the water softener. They should be between 3 & 4 ohms
OK you have two pressure switches attached to this appliance. round things with pipes goint to them. Check that the pipes are not blocked.
OK one final thing - the flood protection switch in the base, is that operating?
OK you need to check it for continuity it should change as you lift the fload
OK well we have checked the solenoids, we know the pump works and that the pressure switches are not blocked. Only thing that has any further relevance is the main pcb - just have a look at that and see if there are any burnt tracks or breaks in cables.
Yes likely and would cause the pcb to be damaged. Likely we could get the pcb repaired if your diy doesnt work. Come back to me when you have it resoldered.
ok speak soon
