Re: wd61

What ha happend is the door interlock shorted and blew the rcd. However in doing so it al blew a triac on the timer..

This is very easy to repair if you know how to get to the timer... but you also have to replace the door inter lock...

Solder a bit of wire between the connections on the timer...

If you follow the neutral wire back fro mthe door interlock upto the timer then you will see what i mean by it blowing the triac...

Machine partially fills and then stops working.

THE RCD SWITCH is concealed on the inner side of the hindges of the door or on the top innerside of the door. it is a simple push switch which has a mechanism of push to on/off
this switch has got stuck in off position.
change this switch or spray a drop of rust removal oil. it will start functioning
