Question about Washing Machines
I have no manual to my washer to refer to as i got it second hand, when the machine is left empty sometimes it manages to end up with a couple of inches of water in it when i come to put washing in? and also it has just been on a cycle and stopped with 17 minutes left and had a red circular symbol in the corner of the screen and it wont do anything at all?

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.

Check the lid switch, the machine will not spin or drain without the lid switch being activated. You should be able to see if the switch actuator is broken or missing, look in the slot where the lid's plunger drops into, if you can see the gray plastic actuator, set the machine in the spin cycle and try to depress the switch with a flat screwdriver, if it runs, the switch is cracked and needs replaced, if the actuator looks fine, and you can hear a distinct "click" when you press down on it, it may be a problem in the timer, but check the lid switch first, that's most likely the problem.

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

sounds like you have a blocked hose/pump vent hole.......if its holding water in the bottom of the tub it wont spin it will try but the pcb wont let it do the spin .due to pressure switch telling its got water left... pull pipe off pressure switch check holes not blocked check all hoses......
