OK Problem located (without Diagnostics) , the problem was a faulty START/PAUSE button. I took the display board apart and fiddled with the button (whilst the power was UNPLUGGED) Starts almost every time, when it does`nt fiddle some more.

Go to similar problem posted by ronnelini on Sept 8 2008, and see my suggested solution.
If you're lucky it could be a quick and cheap fuse replacement.

That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.
first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

SOURCE: it dose not go to spin
Hi just read your posting.Now just a couple of questions.Does your machine drain the water If it does not drain the water remove most of the water by hand so you can tip the machine back so you can look underneath .Now you will see a pump to the front right of the machine.It will have a red or black fan attached to it.Turn the fan a few times to loosen the pump if it is tight .If it loosens when you turn the fan put it back on its feet and select a spin cycle and push the start button.Hopefully it starts to drain.If it drains it should spin. Please reply with additional information or if it starts to drain.Good luck.

Hi have had this problem on phase 5 grey controller, on the controll board near where the valve hot and cold wires are connected you will see a small usually blue resistor value approx 5ohms this is probably open circuit replace it check your water valves before reconnecting I was fortunate enough to have plenty of spare valves so I just replaced both valves as I suspect a faulty one may have damaged resistor machine has been working fine for some time since
