Re: Smart drive 5.5 washing machine lights show power on...
OK Problem located (without Diagnostics) , the problem was a faulty START/PAUSE button. I took the display board apart and fiddled with the button (whilst the power was UNPLUGGED) Starts almost every time, when it does`nt fiddle some more.

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down
the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons.
You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.
You need to get hold of a multi-meterand check the resistance of the pump, It should be 33ohms or close to it, the pump is part of the power circuit and the machine will appear dead if it has blown or is unplugged, If the machine was running without the earth wire to the pump connected and the pump had a fault/blockage there is a very good chance that it has blown the motor controller module. It requires the earth to provide a fault path to earth.
It does not seem like a problem of the unit. It might be a loose connection of supply code. Keep the supply code pressed to the unit in different directions and see if the unit takes power. If so, replace the supply code. It's not that expensive.
If there is power and all your lights are lighting up but you get no responce from the machiene eg no spin, water filling, wash cycle or drain then it will be the sensor for the lid it will have coroded but this is an easy fix , I hope this helps
