hi, thanks for getting back, not too sure if i had got through to you.

Ok so when you set it going is the washer just filling all the time?

If you set the washer to a spin only will the drum turn at all?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
have tried the spin only and other features and it still does the same thing, it will start the water running for a minute then stops and with in about five seconds the water runs again and stops and it carries on like that but will not turn the drum to wash.

Ok just to double check if you set it to a spin only its still fills and then stopping and filling again is this correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that's right, we turned the dial to the spin selection button but it started to run the water, i also tried the usual setting that i use and it started to do the same with the water running and the stopping and starting. we have left it for a while and have just tried the machine again and we are not sure if it is now working but until it has done the cycle we don't really know, if it goes through, it could have been a button somehow had got jammed but and again we are not sure, if its ok with you i will come through again in the morning to let you know. Thanks
