The dial keeps getting stuck and the washing programme can't continue
When the machine is switched on, it takes in water but the dial appears to "stick" and the programme does not procede. I have tried to move the dial "gently" to the next position but it does the same and won't move any further. Then it wouldn't spin when I set it to that position. It just sounds like it is emptying out. To make matters worse, when the dial reaches stop, it blows the trip switch on the mains switchboard for the house. Please if anyone has any tips, they would be a great help, before I turn it into a tin can!!!

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.
CHECK TO SEE IF THE DRAIN HOSE IS RAISED ABOVE THE REQUIRED HEIGHT. IF THE WATER IS OVER FLOWING THE TUB THEN IT IS USUALLY THE A BLOCKAGE IN THE PRESSURE SWITCH HOSE, OR SOME INABILITY OF THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH TO MEASURE THE AMOUNT OF WATER IN THE TUB.
Might be a bit complex but this is your problem and solution
REMEMBER TURN THE POWER OFF
F07: Heater relay stuck or element open circuit
This fault is only signalled when pressure switch is in empty position.
Check the efficiency of edge connector J3 on module.
Check wiring to heater and continuity of element (25 ohms approximately).
Check the efficiency of pressure switch connections and correct operation of pressure switch,
and the pressure chamber is not blocked with sludge.
Remove edge connector J3 and check wiring and contacts at positions 2, 3 and 4 on J3.
If all above OK replace pressure switch, module or eeprom as required.
probably a main module fault but worth while checking for continuity thro the heater and that the pump and filter are ok. the idea is that when a fault is detected, the dial will click round indicating a fault but usually it is the module itself. expensive part. not worth repair
poss moisture on your control module causing tracking . unplug your machine from the mains and take the back panel off, you can try blowdrying the module down in the bottom left hand corner or you can take it off (noting where all the leads go to),get an old toothbrush and clean the solered side around the bottom of the board failing that you will most probably have to change it
