Question about Washing Machines

Hotpoint wf220 washing machine

When i switch power on, all display lights illuminate for a second then go off. Then there seems to be no power to the appliance at all. i then have to switch off at the plug socket, leave for eight seconds and switch on again with the same results. i have checked the fuses.

    Total loss of all power mid wash cyle. Plug fuse etc all checked and ok. Turned off and got pwere back. Stopped mid cyle again. Did notice a popping sound from on/off switch. Is this teh most likely cause.

    Nope. It didn't happen like that for me. When I turn on the power, nothing happened. I waited for minutes, but still the machine is not powering up

    display is dead. Checked all fuses and all ok - Checked power to the electronic panel and its ok to. All I know is that I am sure that there is power to the panel an the output from the panet transformer is about 13VAC. The thing is the pcb is covered in tick glue and i cannot test components further. Also there seems to be a 25V 100uF capacitor slightly inflated. I am assuming this is the dc smoothing cap that may be burnt. Please give me an opinion on this.

My hotpoint wf541 shows the on/off switch as on but machine will not start. i have cleaned the filter, tried cancel switch and unplugged at the mains

Please check the power to the mains controller unit and if present please check if the door switch is contacting to give the OK signal for the controller to start the function . So if the inlet does not open and allow water into then is seems that the program controller unit is a suspect.
recheck once again to confirm, try to swap a similar board to confirm and then replace.
