HI. i recommend testing the water inlet valve. this is the most common issue that concerns the lack of water that is suppose to enter during the wash. testing is necessary so that you may eliminate the timer control device. Test procedure follows below.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid (aka coil) on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the washer is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

Ok, if the water valve test is successful and the valve is not damaged, replace the timer.

How do i reset washing machine AEG 64840


You can choose the right programme for any type of laundry following the descriptions on the washing programme tables (see «Washing Programmes»).
Turn the programme selector dial to the required programme. The programme selector determines the type of washing cycle (e.g. water level, drum movement, number of rinses) and the washing temperature according to the type of laundry.
The pilot light of button 8 starts blinking.
The selector dial can be turned either clockwise or anticlockwise. Position "0" to Reset programme/ Switching OFF of the machine.
At the end of the programme the selector dial must be turned to position "0", to switch the machine off.
If you turn the programme selector dial to another programme when the machine is working, the yellow pilot light of button 8 will blink 3 times and the message Err is displayed on the display to indicate a wrong selection. The machine will not perform the new selected programme.

Bosh washing machine won't do any programmes


If it fills then the next phase is to agitate.
To do that the motor must drive
Can you hear a whirring sound from the machine if you get close to it if so then the belt driving driving drum may have snapped.
If not then the motor brushes may have stuck or have worn out.
Does the machine programmer advance by itself or are you turning the dial

Service M6766 washing machine. works on whatever programme I set it on but just sits on that programme and will wash at say 40 all day and not move through the washing cycle. I have to turn the dial by...


It more than likely needs the control board taking out and looking at. The dial contains a small drive motor, which can give up, or it could be that the water level or temperature sensors ae not working correctly. these give the control a signal to advance when the drum is full enough, and when hot enough. Are you sure the outlet hose is 3/4 the way up the machine? - too low, and it will always drain before getting full enough.

Programme dial again


yes thats your problem,the reason it wont unscrew is because of things caught inside ie coins gunk you will have to take out machine turn on side,there are two sometime four screws at front of machine where black dail is remove these,when machine is on its side you can acess pump from underneath,there is a black rubber hose which goes from drum to pump which is held on with a circlip remove this at pump end you will need a vicegrip,remove all gunk coins ect, refit all back to machine ,,problem solved......the reason dail was turning was because it was looking for progam to release water which it couldnt because of blockage,after tou unblock you will find that black srew on cover on front can be removed(always better to check for blockages every few weeks hopes this helps
