    What ho one and all,

    Have a Zanussi FL1085 that will not start on virtually all programs. The red power 'on' light illuminates on all programs, the spin works, and the drain pump seems to fire up, but everything else, zilch.

    There is no water coming to the machine, so don't know if that implies the inlet valves (solenoids?) have switched off or there is a blockage in the system. No kinks in the flexible pipes, the isolator valves are both on and as there has been no change to the inlet pipes, it is unlikely to be a blockage, but what do I know.

    I have not removed the top yet to check but then, don't know what I would be looking for. Grateful for any suggestions.

    Thanks and toodle pip

    Rex

    Thanks; very useful link. Perhaps the first stage will be to replace the inlet valves? Is there a way to test them? No water entering but I find it hard to believe that both hot and cold are faulty at the same time.

    Is there an on-board fuse somwhere
