My machine is around 8 years old & I've had no problems with it until now. I put a load on synthetic programme/ quick wash cycle as normal - when I came back to it about an hour later, only the power light & door lock light were on - the display panel was, & still is, blank. I drained a small (approx 3/4 washing up bowl) of water through the drain plug & managed to opened the door to get the washing out after switching the power off, so presumably it had got most of the way through its cycle maybe apart from the final spin? The drain filter was clear when I checked it, although I do clean this regularly. All I can get now is the power light - no other display lights or beeps. Has something happened to a circuit board?

Door not shut Check that the door is properly shut.Faulty interlock A faulty interlock might not allow the door to shut properly. Find your door interlock here and replace, or contact a qualified repairer. No power Check the flex, plug wiring, fuse and mains supply for faults. Faulty on/off switch Check the power light if fitted. Replace your on/off switch. Water supply disconnected or off If a washer dryer cannot load water it cannot start a wash cycle. Check water supply.

The speed of spinning in the washer depends on the weight of the linen in the machine. if the machine is not fully loaded it will create an inbalance and the motor control unit will sense this and hence spin at a low speed. Solution is to ensure that the machine is fully loaded with enough linen.
You should not need to remove anything to check and clean pump filter.
Open the filter door at the bottom right front of washer, there you will see the pump filter cover, unscrew the filter anti-clockwise, and remove the filter, and clean same.
With the filter out, you will see the filter housing, which is fastened directly on to the pump, have a good look inside the housing, and see if anything is stuck in there.
Refit filter, and test.

I think the problem is to do with the water pressure sensor, or hoses inside the machine.
This sensor determines when there is enough water in the machine, and turns the valve off.
If you are competent to have a look, then continue -
Isolate supply and turn off water connections -
Remove the lid by removing screws at the rear, and slide back.
Check the air hoses that are near the drawer area. It is not uncommon for one to just come loose, or rip.
Reassemble and turn on to check opperation.

unplug machine. Pull off retainer clip from the front , with both hands inside push up the seal untill its free. Then with the new seal apply washing up liquid to the gap on the seal.
And fit this is fiddly. Then pull the spring you removed to loosen abit and with a screw driver to keep it in place throught the door lock thats why youve unpluged it. strech the spring around. the ease on the front part of the seal and replace the clip. put on a wool wash to check for leaks.
