14 Nov 2013 - Watch Josh explain how to diagnose washing machine control and program problems. ... If you then suspect that the problem still lies in the circuit board ... to test the board and you'll actually just need to replace it altogether.
This is the Mark 6 board fitted to late Hotpoint washing machines. The module will be programmed to your model number - ready to fit. Typical models are WF550P WF560G .... Hotpoint Arcadia PCB Modules. SKU: 256. Hotpoint Arcadia PCB ...
Just went through the same problem. After removing back cover I noticed surge protecter had some burn marks. I called Westland Sales ordered a new one (about $70). Still didnt fix but it was toast. Investigated further & noticed module board had obvious burn marks. Called Westland again fearing it would be cheaper to replace but board was about $350. For a total of around $450 its good as new. Only basic tools & knowledge required. Phillips screwdriver, 1/2" wrench & a small allen wrench (5/32") if I remeber correctly. I found it easier to replace parts with machine face down & removed bottom cover. Labor time for me was about 20 mins including removing parts & both covers.
Something may have been stuck in the drain pump impeller creating the clanking noise. This is a serious problem that can lead to the burning out of the motor controller module, the machine's "brain". It has been found that a short circuit is imminent on a leaky drain pump which can eventually burn out the motor controller module.
the machine then lay it's front on a padded floor/surface and check the
drain pump including the diverter valve where both the drain pump and the recirculation pump connect from. Replace the drain pump if damaged or leaking to avoid further damage to the motor controller module.
No it would not be safe to fit a new plug and try again. If the plug burned out it would appear that there's a short circuit somewhere in the machine possibly caused by a leak. If you replace the plug you risk burning down the house or electrocuting yourself. I'd advise you to get a repairs man to check out the machine to see if it's repairable. It could be something as simple as needing a new door seal which would cost you around 30 euros.
After contemplating the issue, I decided that the machine "thought" it had filled. That led me to believe that the water level control was not working. I happened to have a control from an old washer that I could make fit. After replacing this control, I'm back in business. Everything is working fine although I now have only 3 water levels to chose from where I previously had 5. I hope this helps. Good luck. Mark
