Thanks for that.

If you have all the ligths flashing then its the main control board at the back at the bottom thats the cause of this. Ive replaced loads of them for this fault.

But if you are handy with a soldering iron then you can repair this.

Remove the control board from the back and then open the plastic casing and remove the board.

Then locate C17 capacitor. Its marked on the board. You will find the top of it will have swelled up. You need to replace that and this will cure the fault from there.

But if you cannot do that then you can get a refurbished board from this site click here

As they sell refubished boards that come programmed ready to fit onto the washer.

But thats what the fault is as ive done loads of them for this fault.
