Press "end of cycle" button for over 5 seconds. Then try to start from beginning according to your normal wash. If this does not work, plug off the wall, open up behind the machine, check to see if all connections are tightly secured. This is possible (loose) due to vibrations in the machine over time. Specially the connectors from the control board to the motor. Please dont forget to rate me....

I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years and this could be a multitude of problems, but assuming nothing at all happens after you have set the programme then start with the "door interlock", this cannot be normally tested with a multimeter, its just a case of replacing with another one, depending on the machine these parts can be very cheap to buy, never try to bypass even just for testing purpose, permanent damage to the timer can be caused work with safety

Hello the
Plesre and welcome to fixya
can i ask you a question did you unplug the machine and leave it sit for at least 1 hour
See these machines have a internal computer that stores information like any settings that are in the programed in the machine
It normally takes any where from 45 min to at least 1 hour to compete the memory loss on the computer thus resetting the computer ok
so please tell me if you did this if so there is more that we can do ok
Best regards michael

Indesit W123 washing machine

it maybe your brushes are worn out, on alot of machines these days if the brushes wear the machine wont fill , or your motor itself could be faulty or your board. Unplug the machine , take the back off , get yourself a test meter disconnect the motor and put the probes from the meter and put it across the tags, if the motor is wrong you wont get continuity between 2 tags normally 1 and 5 looking from the top of the block going down

Zanussi zwf 1432 w washing machine

pcb as the signs were that the pcb was stuck in a programme and unable to change. Anyway, long story short, to fix it:
Take the lid off the washing machine (2 screws at the back) *unplug first
Locate the pcb, unscrew and lift above the washing machine with all wires in tact.
Locate the wires that are coming out of the back of the "program" board, it should be 2 blue wires.
Follow these back to the pcb and unplug
plug in washing machine
Turn on washing machine
Only the on/off light should come on
Whilst on, and being careful, plug back in the wires you unplugged
VOILA, fixed washing machine!!

Right, have to go, got a weeks worth of washing to do!!!!
