hello, bad earth check all the wired connection to the washer if these are ok then check your socket wires make sure wires are tight if these ok then there may be fault inside the washer power supply hope it helps
Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying
power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less
likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before
calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty
wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led
indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows
that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something
else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you
know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never
by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for
a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly
if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing
works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock
or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch
or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing
machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire
washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it
isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer
to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should
use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine
unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.
f04 is a pressure switc problem.
take the lid off and check the clear plastic hose is attached to the bottom of the pressure switch, a round part with wiresand the other end to the sumps breather tube.if it is and there are no holes or splits in the tube it may need replacing.
hi from n/west uk from the symptoms you describe ? that you have no lights on machine? this is most definately total power loss to machine so if you are certain? the fuse is ok? next is has the wire/lead from plug chaffed or damaged breaking the supply? this next possibility may sound odd but the socket you plug machine into ? may be faulty ie the damp location at rear of machine could have caused deteriation of socket terminals or wires even the wire may have broken/come loose? have had this happen in homes and caused by wires not secured properly and eventually arcing/ resulting in power fail at socket ? may i suggest try another elec appliance ie lamp/hoover/ iron? to check if socket is operating just to eliminate? also if the socket is a fused type? make sure this fuse is ok too? finally have you checked consumer unit for possible seperately fused/trip out for the machine use socket ? hope this helps find fault best wishes
