Question about Washing Machines
Have you removed the hose supplying the machine to check if the filter inside the inlet valve is blocked , or fo that matter is water being supplied down the hose?
Remember that the hose will be under mains pressure so have a towel handy when you remove the connector.
If it is clean then leave the hose off place your finger on the plastic thread of the inlet valve and get someone to set the machine going
You should feel a slight vibration if the coil which switches the water inlet valve on is being activated (Some of them really make a strong buzzing noise)
There is no electricity in that area so do not be frightened to put your finger on it.
If the filter is clean and the coil is buzzing you should get water going into the machine.
If the coil is not buzzing it has gone open circuit and needs replacing.
Worst case is that the programmer has broken (Very rare)
