Hi @SallyT

Some washing machines require the start button to be held in for a few seconds before the cycle will start.

If that doesn't help, is there any error code on the display?

No that's not it, it's started but then gets stuck.

 

no error code

Did you select a Wool Cycle when the issue occurred? If so then please be assured that the drum will stay still or move very slowly initially to prevent damage to the fabric. If this isn't the case then please can you try reducing the size of the laundry load to see if this helps, as sensors in the machine will prevent operation if the load capacity is exceeded. Let me know how you get on.

It's on all cycles no matter how little is in the drum and it should take 8k

Hi, 

Our washing machine seems to be doing the same thing! Did you get your issues sorted? 
Thought I'd check before I called an engineer.

thanks

Nope!

 

we were told the computer *might* be broken - fixing would have cost £300 and possibly wasn't the issue

 
we ended up buying a new one

Hi Andnichol,

 

Did you manage to fix your washing machine?

Same problem here...

Thanks.

Hi tessel4, 

 

Did get it sorted but had to call out an engineer. Got a local washing machine guy to come round and he fixed it there and then for £60.00.

Hi @Andnichol. Glad to hear you got it sorted!

 

@tessel4. How long have you had your Washing Machine?
