I am at wits end here folks. I don't know what to do about this washer i had to replace the back support spindle and finally got that done put the drum back together and the heating element was touching the drum reset that to where it ran through its little bracket and still the machine through the t3 code. I then replaced the thurmistor and still it throws the t3 code after waiting about 20 seconds. I don't know what else to do as all the code references from google searches say to replace the thermistor. I did and i know that bad parts come through but i would hope for $40 it wouldn't had been a bad part! PLEASE HELP ME i don't know what else to do! I can give you the model # if it helps also it is an american vs. of the machine!
Hi I'm hoping someone here can help me with my washing machine problems. I think I've put this in the wrong area but DIY repairs was greyed out. Just doing a normal wash and the RCD gets tripped and half of the house's power goes off. There was a bang from the washing machine. After emptying it and running it, inside the drum compartment there is a blue flash and RCD is tripped. After switching the power on again, a flame is seen across the back of the drum compartment. After research I removed the heating element which was covered with calcium carbonate and proceeded to clean it with heated vinegar and water. Eventually the calcium carbonate came off but the element is black where it has been burning. So I ordered a new one. New one arrives a few days later. After installing, the machine doesn't leak or trip the RCD. It completes a wash cycle but doesn't heat the water. Not sure if the heating element or the included thermistor/stat or pcb of the machine is at fault, so can't ask for a replacement. Found one with a drum problem that someone is selling. (4 hour round trip) After removing it's heating element with the thermistor and putting it in the original machine, and getting it to start washing, it is heating the water. And it's not stopping... Eventually it stopped the program. Steam was coming out of the compartment after opening the door. Also from the drawer compartment after opening it. Smoke was also leaving the drawer compartment. Right now the original thermistor is fitted to the machine with the used 2nd hand heating element. I'll add to the thread when there are updates. Sorry about the long story. I would appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thanks for all your help.
