no but I can may be get this done tommorow as i live on my own single mother :(

Aww ok no problem. I've looked up the details of the fault and it should be fairly straight forward but I find it's easier to do things live. If you give me a rough idea what time you can do this tomorrow I'll keep an eye out on my emails

really that sounds good thank you all I can do is give it a shot if any issues ill message u thank u thought it was something silly as it worked once stopped work again but past 3 days nothing

Remove the screws in the rear panel and take off. At the bottom of the plastic tub you should be able to see an oval metal piece that bolts into the drum. The fault code implies a fault with the sensor in the middle of this piece but given that the machine has recently been moved its more likely that a connection has come away. Let me know how you get on. You can also attach pictures to these replies so I can help you in a bit more detail if you need it.

oh let me see think my friend put it back on now :( all looked in tact no loose wires

Ahh sorry. Been running round after the kiddies all day

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

yeh just opening them now

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

Thanks. The red cables to the left of the motor attach to the heater and in between those 2 cables are some smaller ones give them a gentle pull to see if they are ok

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

In that case according to the tech manual you will need to replace the heater. It's still a straight forward repair but not as easy as we'd hoped.

All you need to do to replace the heater is undo the nut in the middle below the yellow/green cable and pry the heater out then do the reverse to fit a replacement. Here's a link to the heater

ok thank you let's hope that works thank you
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
then we have to 're attach all the wires I gather is this Job can do at home all need to be by expert

Yes just put them back in the same position as you removed them from. Yes its really easy to do but can be a pain to pull the old ones out sometimes as there is a seal the other side that swells so you have to lever it out with a screw driver putting the new one in is a piece of cake.
