There's a possibility that the motor control board is not functioning correctly. The motor control board receives 120 VAC voltage from the line cord and distributes DC voltage to the drive motor. The motor control converts the voltage from single phase to 3 phase for the drive motor.

You may need to check also the drive motor to see if there's a wax that you need to remove.

Here, I provided you the link where you can watch how to remove the wax motor:

NOTE: Check this link and you will see the media player. Click it and watch how to remove the wax motor.

I also provided you this link that will redirect you to the user guide of this machine:

Have a great day!

Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board. It's like rebooting your computer. I did this to mine and it cleared up the problem.

Replacing the control panel should be the LAST thing you attempt!
Go back to basics first - does the machine empty when you turn it on? have you removed the water in the machine by lowering the waste hose onto the floor or removing the drain filter? do the program indicators light up?is water flowing through the fill hose / hoses? Are any fault codes showing? If you replaced the fuse, did it blow again? Have you any means of testing electrical Insulation / Earth continuity? Have you tried plugging something else into the washing machine socket - say a kettle or heater etc?
It well may be the Electrical Control Board in the end, BUT if you fit a new board onto a faulty part - say a blown heater - you will probably blow the new board as well, and the shop won't take it back for this reason.

Me Estate washing machine, when started fills to specified water level then, it makes a buzzing noise then the buzz quits and nothing happens. Machine won't agitate or drain, just buzz then buzz quits.

sounds like you have a problem with your water supply to washer. the buzzing noise sounds like it's the valve opening to receive water but nothing going in. check supply hoses and water taps

Washer filled with water then stopped

Same problem- quick fix- to release door anyway. Found the service manual online...First unplug power cord and remove bottom front panel. Reach underneath on the right side of the machine- there will be a white round plastic disk that you can pull downward to release the door lock and remove your wet clothes. I found a pen lodged inside which may have caused the 'glitch'. When I ran it again it did the same thing and locked at the same place. The service guy had to replace the door lock mechanism to permanently fix the problem.

Solis Palazzo - stuck in descale mode?

Are you refilling the tank during this process? You need to let in run dry, and then the buttons flash. Then, refill the tank with clean water, and let the tank run dry again.
