Question about Washing Machines
The "rinses" light is flashing on my machine but the drum still spins so the motor is is fine. Is it likely to be fault in relay 6K1 and the little TR5 fuse? If so what is the best way to get this fixed?

Just had the exact same problem and think I may have solved it. even turning power off didn't solve it. I think what happened was that the programme had been interupted while drying. I tried everything to get machine to work afterwards but only the following worked - while lights are flashing put back to the same time I had set to dry (60) in my case and turned the dial to M for dry high heat light goes off after a short while - leave for 5 mins then press off. machine will make a noise for a short while then stop.
If this happens then machine should be back to normal.
this is same for both posts I guess.

I have had the same problem. If you switch the machine to off and then to cotton/linen 95, then press at the same time prewash, soaking, qick wash and stain buttons for 10 seconds switch it off. When I switched it on it worked.

Same - there's a company in Denmark which does brushes - you have to hunt them down on the web. The brushes come in a brass slider and spring, and sit in a rubber cage. Make sure you don't throw away any bits of the old brushes as you might need to reuse the old rubber cage.
Another solution (if you have the rubber cage) is to move the brushes along a bit and bend the metal tabs on the brass slider. That will give you a contact again - the machine will work for a few weeks or so, which gives you time to order the new brushes.

A few reasons for this, faulty heater, broken wire, faulty pressure switch or faulty main control board (the heater relay is on the main control board).
There is no reset for this.
Unplug the appliance and take the rear cover off.
Check the wiring to the heater and thermostat. Give the wires a good tug as they can break internally and look ok.
If you have a multimeter, test the heater, it should read around 25 ohms.
Take the top off the appliance, locate the pressure switch (has a thin tube on it), give it a few good taps with your screwdriver handle.
Finally, take the main control board out (bottom left when viewed from the rear) and one plug at a time, take them off, clean and tighten them, plug them back on.
If everything checks out ok, then it's likely the main control board is at fault.

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
