When it is turned on, press the On/Off button and the Start/Cancel button at the same time until the display reads "dOff". This worked for my washing machine after repeatedly displaying "Test" and doing nothing else.

My washing machine will not turn on.

I suggest you rapid reading of alarms.
  • Press the START/PAUSE button and the nearest option button simultaneously for at least 2 seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence indicating the last alarm.
  • To display the previous alarms, press the button to the left of the START/PAUSE button in sequence.
  • To return to the last alarm, press the START/PAUSE button.
  • The alarm continues to be displayed for the amount of time required, and then the display returns to its normal operation.
  • While the alarm is being displayed, the appliance continues to perform the cycle or, if in the programme selection phase, it maintains the previously selected options in memory.

The machine keeps showing test. it won't go onto any other programme. it keeps running through the test programme then stops, i then try and put it to wash and it will come up with test again. OK, to help you, I have found you your service and troubleshooting manual. Below is a DIY self help. washer link, this will help you to troubleshoot your issue.
You should try to reset it, but if that doesn't work, you may find you have a main controller board failure.
