Dead Washing machine

My Blomberg 1503AS has stopped working midcycle during the rinse period according to the dial. It has an operation light that should come on when the programme selector is moved from the off position and a door light which should come on when the start button is then pressed. Neither lights work. When it stopped it threw the breaker on our consumer unit, but did not blow the fuse in the plug, as I tested it in another appliance. It seems lifeless. Any ideas what I should look for and how to test using a multimeter.

Hi,

With a continuity tester (multimeter or DVM), check the prongs of the plug itself with the Blomberg set to any cycle. The reading should not be "0" (short). Additionally, you can try it on another outlet being used by another appliance.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

Does Not Rinse


Check each temperature during initial wash fill. Set to hot water, is hot water coming out? Set to cold water, is cold water coming out? The rinse cycle is cold only. If cold water is not working machine will just stop at rinse.

If cold water not working:
Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still not working, replace valve.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Machine doesn't spin/rinse/drain


not sure why, but the timer is lacking supply power during this event. look on back of timer for power connections to the motor. now monitor the 2 terminals for supply with a voltmeter to be sure. usually a schematic is taped to inside of machine so you can trace where that supply is on it.

Washing machine stopped midcycle


It seems like the engine of the washing machine has burned out. If you are still in your warrenty period (and you used the machine conform operating instructions) you can contact the store you bought it from and ask for a replacement or repair. Otherwise you'll have to ask a repair man to come but these can be quite expensive.
