    Hi folks,

    Really hoping someone here can help, got the old washing machine in the title with a small problem... The door got stuck shut for some reason but managed to get it unlocked - had to take the lid off and press the little latch on the back of the door lock to do so - put it back together but now the thing wont start at all...

    I've checked all the connections in case I caught something (also looked for some kind of lid-switch in case there was something to stop it running with the lid off) the fuse in the plug etc. Had a look through the net and came across suggestions regarding the vacuum pipe thing getting blocked so checked that at well - can blow air through it towards the drum and can blow air to the solenoid thing and hear it clicking under positive pressure but I'm not sure if that proves anything?

    Any ideas? Really can't afford to get a new washer at the moment!

    Thanks in anticipation!

    Check the timer for burnt track. It wil be on top at the from where the first black connector is. If it's lifted the Track then resolder and replace door lock. What date code have you got on the door lock has it ever been replaced.

    Thanks for that, I'll have a check later. As for date code, no idea, I'll check that as well but I doubt it's ever been replaced, washer belonged to my friend who bought it, used it for a couple of years until she moved in with her boyfriend and it sat in storage until I took it off her hands a couple of years ago after my last one died a death!

    Cheers
