Simpson ezi sensor 8.0 kg won't spin lid lock flashes and alarms
To solve the beeping and lid lock light flashing and the machine not doing a spin dry. Do the following.
I have a SIMPSON EZI SENSOR 8Kg top loader. This is what I did.
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE. switch the power off and unplug the machine.
DO NOT do this if you are not familiar with working with high voltages.
To get access to the lid lock switch,
1. Remove 2 screws at the rear of the washer.
2. Remove 2 screws at the front of the machine located under the lid and covered by small round plastic plugs.
The top cover can now be raised gently from the front.
3. Remove the 2 screws that hold the lid switch.
4. Remove the clear plastic cover from the lid switch.
5. DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE ( Verify that power is off)
6. Find 2 blue wires these go to a magnetic reed switch (25mm long 3mm Diameter).
the blue wires and discard the reed switch. insulate the ends of the
blue wires and push them back into the track in different directions so
there is no possibility that they can make contact with each other.
7. Find 2 white wires these go to a set of contacts that are mechanically closed by the solenoid.
8. Pull out the contacts and the 2 white wires.
Cut the white wires at the contacts, strip 5mm of plastic off the wires
and twist them together, The wires will have corrosion, clean them with
sand paper, they must make good contact. I recommend that you solder
10. Insulate them and push them back into the track.
11.Reassemble starting with fitting the clear plastic cover.
Your good to go BUT BUT BUT,
The Lid safety protecting during the spin dry cycle will no longer function,
So don't do this if you need the safety of the lid closed during the spin cycle.
Remove 2 screws at the back of the machine

Fisher and Paykel IWL12 leaking
First confirm the source of the leak. Dry the pump and all areas around it. Run a wash cycle and then check pump again. You should be able to see where the leak starts from. If it is definitely the pump, it is easy to remove. Take off wire plug & earth wire. Hold out the white plastic clip on the side of the pump and rotate pump quarter turn anti clockwise. Pump will then come out. Do the reverse to put pump back. Make a note of which way the pump faces before you take it out. Also, make sure power is unplugged before you do any work.

I live in Dubai and
First question that comes to mind is why you would want to have a machine if their is no service support where you live. I assume you have done the basics like taking hose off machine inlet and pointing it in to a tub, turn tap on and make sure there is a good supply of water. Put hose back on machine, fully open tap & start (on cold supply). Lift lid while it is filling. Check that a strong flow is coming in to machine. Then repeat with the hot tap. If water is only trickling in & sounds like it is struggling then more than likely it needs a new inlet water valve.

Washing cycle cuts out I noticed "power cut" on
It sounds like you may have a loose connection somewhere and you are loosing power to the machine, worst case scenario there an issue with the motor controller module.
I dont understand the door flop down, these should lock unless of course the motor locking unit is buggered causing the system to restart.

this can be a motor control fault, and sometimes a fault with the motor itself, test motor windings for equal resistance, and check motor physically for wear / damage. replace motor controller.
