I've done all the bog standard basic checks, nothing wrong with the fuse, plug or the socket that he machine is plugged into. I have cleared the filter out just in case. When I switch the power on at the socket the washing machine is plugged into, all fur green lights and the red neon on-off/door locked lights all immediately flash up to indicate power to the machine. However, when I turn the on-off button to start the wash load there is nothing - no red neon nor any green lights come on. Any ideas as to what I can do to try an fix this? I do have plumbing skills I just am not a washing machine expert by any means. However I am not afraid to get stuck in so any knowledgeable suggestions you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your help in advance, JD.

PCB has suffered a catastrophic failure due to the power cut, it will need to be replaced. if you have a power cut in the future always turn off your appliances, as the voltage can exceed the appliance recommended voltage. only leave a light on as lights can take the over voltage unless they are led type, you can but power drop sockets that when power is off it turns of the socket off so no power goes thought to the appliance.
Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB. I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,
