HiThat Error code you have is E52. Now this error code is a motor fault. Most of the time it's the carbon brushes on the motor that has worn down.What you need to do is remove the back panel the washer and there you will see the motor at the bottom of the drum. Remove the motor and at the back either side you will see the carbon brushes. Remove them and see if they have worn right down if they are only a few millimetres long and they need to be replaced.Check them and see what you find and let me know always have that error code it's something to do with the carbon brushes in the motor.Let me know what you find.Regards
