    Have just read earlier messages on this appliance.
    On my WF320 .. I have flashing lights :-
    ....On/Off flashes really fast....
    ....Wash Enhance Flashes slowly....

    I can see the Error Code List from Rocks1...
    How are the lights are numbered ???
    'Wash Enhance' is the top light -- Is this Number 1 ???
    If it is then I have a 'Heater Relay' Fault -- Where is
    the Heater Relay located ????

    I assume the drum has to come out ??
    Machine is 6 years old.
    I would appreciate any advice.
    Regards John Galley

    Many thanks 'Rocks1'.
    Can you confirm that 'Wash Enhance' light is number 1. ??

    When I remove power for a while and start a wash --
    the cycle works till it switches Heater ON and that
    trips my RCCD..
    If I do this with 'heat off' it continues to operate so
    I think it is a faulty element..

    This looks a bit wrong.

    My Wash Enhance (top light) & On/Off light flashes, and according to rocky's list that's heating relay.
    But this error only occurs when it's about to Spin, and it sounds like it's pumping out water.

    So heating relay doesn't sound likely for this particular issue.

    Also, I tried using it with "no heat" and it made no difference - still same error.

    Heater relay is on the pcb, might be heater but relay sticks and causes this fault. New relay needed or pcb.
