Hi, this washer dryer works fine enough but the power does not always switch on at all. it has been dropped a little before but has worked several times perfectly. will it be affected by only having one water hose connected? what would you do about the power?

Operation will be affected by having only one hose connected - when water from the disconnected hose is demanded then machine will not continue. i assume hot hose not connected. easiest way to deal with this is to connect both hoses to a ~"y" piece. easily available and costs about £3

Was it working before? You may have a blocked outlet hose. Try taking it off under the sink to look for a blockage. You could also try getting some water in from that end with another hose to see if it comes out into the machine. If it is not a blocked hose, then the pump may be faulty.
If you have power to the washer, but nothing is working, then the usual cause is a faulty door interlock.
to prove if it is the door lock, disconnect it, and join the two thick wires on the lock together, if it is faulty, the washer will now work.
If it does not, then you have another problem, it will be a process of elimination.
Only do the foregoing if you are competent to do so, and know what you are doing with electrics.
Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.
Please rate my solution.
its seems you're doing your home work. that cylindrical part is the thermostat itself. it should have a resistance in the range of kilo ohms. around 10 kohm to 25 kohms. you can try to change the range of your testing equipment so that you could be sure that te thermostat is really open circuit.
if there is no resistance, then that is the problem. if there is resitance in the kilo ohms range then it could still be ok and you need todo some further testing.
you can check for voltage presence at the terminlas of the heater. if there is no voltage then it could be the relay on the power board that supply voltage to the heater.
or the board itself.
i hope i was able to help..please rate me..tnx
