How do I set my Neff Washing Up machine to come on at night?

 Have a Neff washing up machine which works perfectly during the day but I also have an economy 7 electric meter so I want to set it to run at night.  What I do is try to set the machine as if it is about to start then plug in the 24-hr electric timer 'clock', turn on the electric and go to bed.  In the morning the timer has moved on correctly but the washing up machine hasn't worked, Have you any suggestions?  I have tried to ring Neff on the numbers that are in the original instruction manual but they supposedly don't exist- the only one number (at Swindon) which was working, was on an ansaphone and no one replied.

I dont think you will be able to start your washing machine this way during the night. Electronically controlled machines will need you to press the start button again when the power is re-applied. They dont 'remember' where the program left off unlike the old mechanical type of programmer.

Neff washing machine not spinning. have drained water. is the white circular part bottom left the filter. could it be there is something in here that is preventing it spinning? i cannot open it.

You can check if the drive is struck or the motor is struck. It will be good to confirm with a voltage check to see if power comes to the motor during the program cycle. if not the program controller is faulty. If yes the motor must run, if with a starting capacitor it must be weak and replaced.
If the drive is tight remove and reset.

Neff washing machine - barrel doesnt spin

I would recommend it. Otherwise they will have to run new wires from control module all the way down to the motor. I would get my money back since they didn't replace the right piece.

Error code e 10 means no cold fill.

Ensure that the water getting to the machine from the water supplies at the back. Check that the hoses are not bent or kinked and that the water tap is opened.
Try cutting power to the machine for ten minutes to reset the code.
If that does not work, then it is usually a faulty inlet valve stuck on closed on cold water.

I did 2 things - 1) changed the brushes on the motor- cost £7.50 .
2) whilst working under the machine disconnected pipe from drum to pump and emptied it- found 2 coins in the bellows.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash - Wash Cycle not holding water

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

Perhaps it needs to be thoroughly cleaned out first - sometimes the gloopy mess collects and blocks the outlet hole.
