Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Hotpoint washing machine. w860 . Stopped in mid cycle. No power, fuse checked and ok. Drum is full of water ... far too high!!! . Display not working.
Turn off the water supply to the machine
Take the drain hose off the back of the machine and drop it into a bucket , you will need to do this several times.(Take off any clips that stop it from being laid flat on the floor)
Once all of the water is out of the machine try powering it up again, if it lights up do a spin to get the clothes dry , leaving the outlet hose in the bucket.
If that works then once the machine is dry try turning on the water supply with the machine turned off , if water runs into the machine then you have a faulty fill valve.
If that is ok then check the pressure switch and Air Bell which sits on the back of the main drum you could have a soap ball in the Air Bell which will false out the machine and cause overfilling
If there is no power check the mains supply to the wall outlet then the plug top wiring and any fuse fitted inside the plug top
After that it is down to a man with a test meter
