Can someone help - Our washing machine has no power, It was doing a cycle and turned off, no lights are on at all even after turning on and off multiple times. It is not the wall socket as I have tested it and it is not the fuse in the plug as I have swapped it over with another that was deffinatly working. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Kind regards
Hi all, Obviously, my washing machine has broken - that's kinda why I'm here! However, extensive googling and reading of repair advice websites has left me with nowhere to turn as I have yet to see a similar problem presented. Hoover VTS 712 D21. When turned on, it initially works exactly as expected. The programmes are all selectable and the display correctly shows the time expected for the programme selected. The door locks and water can be heard entering the machine on a wash cycle and draining on a drain cycle. After approx. 1 minute (is it possible the trigger is the count-down timer changing?) the machine loses all power. The LED light next to the start button and the display panel both go blank. Then, about 5 seconds later, everything comes back on and runs for 5-ish seconds before cutting out again. This goes on and on and on until I get fed up with it and turn it off. I've tried changing the socket it's plugged into, have checked the drainage and cleaned out the pump filter. In the ~1 minute it works, it works as normal. I don't know if there's something preventing the drum from turning and that is causing the machine to power off (surely that would give an error code?), or if there is an electrical fault where a loose connection gets warm and disconnects itself. I'm basically looking for ideas - if I know roughly what the problem is I can figure out the costs of repairing it either DIY or by a qualified engineer. But nowhere online or in the fault diagnosis parts in the manual does it say "some gremlins turn it on/off and make you think you're going crazy". Someone please help!
