    The programme selector dial on my 10 year old washing machine broke so it spins freely and therefore the machine cannot be used at all. I have now resolved this - but wanted to post this so others can follow the fix, as when I spoke to Tricity Bendix/Electrolux, their only solution was to replace the whole machine for the sake of a snapped bit of plastic that I have now replaced for gbp7. So - to fix 1) Unplug the machine 2) Remove the top lid by removing 2 screws at the back of the lid 3) Remove the centre of the programme selector dial by reaching down behind the front panel with a screwdriver and release the two plastic tabs holding the centre of the dial into the outer ring. Pull out. 4) Remove the outer ring of the programme dial by undoing the metal nut on the front, then reaching down and release the 3 plastic tabs that hold it onto the front panel piece. 5) This outer dial was what was broken - it should have a ring of teeth and tabs in the centre on the back that fit into the yellow Cam wheel. 6) Purchase Part number 1248201004 as replacement. This is actually for machine CAW1010, but is physically the same part. Note the WDR1040W part number for the obsolete dial is 1321499301, but the number printed on both is 12477630 - this is the moulding number, not the part number 7) (While waiting for delivery, mark on the yellow cam wheel the programme positions you need, and turn it with a screwdriver to still use the machine) 8) The new part has the numbers printed in the wrong place - hold the old and new together and mark the numbers by hand ! 9) Refix the dial (it only goes on way round - align the larger tab in the centre ring with the gap in the yellow cam. REplace the nut, click the centre cap back in place et voila. Saved having to buy a new machine.

SOURCE: what is the quickest wash cycle for the tricity

Hello,

This is relating to the 2006 model.The times are not printed in most manuals like they used to but on this machine most probably the quickest prog. would be( 4 ) this is 3 rinses and a long spin at 40 deg. If you are experiencing long times on your washes do check that your water pressure is good as that will shorten the duration of all cycles and save on electric.

Hope this was helpful.

Good Luck

Hi

The issue is either with bad door lock-switch assembly or the control board that is bad and should be replaced. You can take the control apart and check the wires & also if any button is stuck you can unstick that and if the issue returns replace the control board. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Not spinning at all! Does the entire cycle without moving! Thanks


Either the belt has come off, or broken, or the motor is not working.
You would need to remove the motor to check it properly.
Please tate my solution.
Thanks.

Well well well - Welcome to the Bendix Club!

Here is the secret!

Push all 4 buttons in!

Turn on the Cold water only!

Set the first dial on 3 dots before the GREEN #12

Set the second dial to snow or cold

Set the third dial to one dot after the green 7....

If this doesnt work...the something is wrong with the machine!

Or email me.
