Question about Washing Machines
I have a SMEG S800 freestanding electronic washing machine. it does not perform a spin cycle any more and it is just out of warranty. when you select "spin" it sounds as though the drain pump is running, then it "clicks", the led's all flash "on" briefly then "off" and it keeps repeating this until you stop the machine.
Had a similar problem with our S800, found the little clip that connects the brake servo cable to the brake itself had broken meaning the brake wasn't being released and the tub wouldn't spin. Got the part from the local appliance parts supplier for $4.20 - job done, probably save $100+ on a service call out.
