Question about Washing Machines
I have this exact problem. it starts during a cycle or after and then although the door locks the light to say it is only briefly flickers on and it will not let the cycle start.
I have fixed this several times but am not sure how.
I replaced the part that engages the lock even though the lock works and checked the control board at the bottom to see if it had blown anything (earth or components ect) and it was ok for a week or so.
It did it again, I checked the connectors again on the control board again and once again it started ok.
Again it did it, this time I thought that there was nothing obvious with the control board, unless a dry solder joint which I could not see, so I just tipped the washer forward onto its front as I had been doing to get to the control board and again the washer started.
Now this washer is rubbish in my opinion with anything to do with blockages, as it used to get F error codes that I solved by cleaning the pump. now I concluded that tipping it forward could be dislodging a blockege so have just this minute decided to check the pump, even though its not a F code error, and found a ridged piece of grass stopping the ball in the black rubber going to the pump from doing its job. I have removed it so fingers crossed this is the problem and not some relay on the control board. Try tipping it forward and clean the pump out while its over, let us know on here if it solves your problem also to be conclusive this is the issue.
