Hi. Someone's managed to depress the start button for this so that it has sunk back completely.
I wanted to know if the front panel can be opened and i could re-slign the button (i'm presuming it's sprung from behind)
Any help would be appreciated.

Remove top cover, 2 screws are hidden behind 2 plastic covers at front of lid, push the lid back to remove , undo the screws that hold the dispenser, and slide the console panel to the right, then you can access the control board and reset the button,

Hi if you pull your machine out so you have access to rear then you can remove the bottom panel using a screw driver. This will then give you access to the sump pipe, using either a pair of grips, or screw driver/ depending what fitting you have, you can remove the clip holding the sump hose in place,You may find that this is where you are likely to have a blockage.be sure to place the ball back into place after as this acts as a non return vaulve. while you have this pipe off it may be worth just taking the pump side of the pipe off to ensure the pump is clear.Also make sure all pipes are on secure when replacing clips.
Remove the lower back cover, check to see if the belt is o/k.
If belt o/k,then remove the motor and check the brushes in motor..
If less than 3 or 4 mm long, then they need to be replaced.
Hope this helps .
Sounds like it could be relatively expensive to put right.
Personally, I think you would be better in investing in a new washer, more so in view of the fact that is 7 years old.
There are numerous possibilities for the symptoms you describe.
Hope this helps you to come to a decision.

IF you machine is a wma39 not a wmm39a then what has happed is that you control board is blown basically. TO check this remove the soap draw and you will c three screws remove them... TO make removing the panel easier i would suggest removing the top as well as the front panel is wedged into it.. Then unclip the board from the panel and you will c where the big wiring plug is attached that the tracks on the board are blown.. There is no point replacing the board untill you can work out what has caused it to blow because it will blow again.. Its usually the motor or the doorlock which blows the board.. Trust me i been dealing with this type of machine for years...
