My 14 month old washing machine has no power/no lights on.The fuse is ok and there is power to the capacitor. The drum is empty and machine worked perfectly when last able to use it.
I am reluctant to go any further but would like an idea of what the possible cause of the failure is....?What would be the most likely cause Capacitor?Interlock?Module failure?
I am grateful for any advice.

you need to check the pressure switch inside the washing machine there a small hose connected with the pressure switch to sense that the level of water inside the drum is ok if this hose blocked the machine will not run
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:17 Sat evening,
I presume that you could turn the drum by hand? Also how old/used is it, please?
Can you hear a sound as if the motor is turning? If you can it could be that the belt has broken/come off. If you cannot hear it it could be that the motor is not working.
WITH THE POWER OFF-
have the back removed so that the belt (and motor) can then be seen easily.
If belt is OK then it is likely to be the motor especially if the machine is quite a few years old and well used. Often the motor brushes wear down to the extent that they do not run on the commutator and the motor stops- or, as in our case just before Xmas, becomes intermittent. Although it is possible to go the least costly way and have the brushes changed, it is false economy in the long run. The new brushes will not bed in correctly and will only last a fairly short time (I've heard of 1 month!). A replacement motor (ours cost £250- and I replaced the belt at the same time- both were 15-20 years old) should last for many years.
I may just be lucky or it might just be temporary but the fault has cleared on my zanussi zwf 1632 w. washing machine thanks for the offers of help if needed in future i will certainly contact FixYa."Bill 34"
