Hi there, I have been trying to fix this washer for quite some time now but it has been a puzzle to me and I will try to be as accurate as possible:
The machine was working fine when the house power went down, after that it has not worked properly.
What happens now is that everytime I plug it to the wall it immediatly starts spinning non-stop until it hits max RPM and then it stays there spinning at max RPM.
None of the buttons work, not even the power button, I push them and nothing changes.
The display is working (not sure if working fully as it should but it lights up) but it doesn't show any errors, instead it shows a - - - - - - for every digit field and stays like that.
The machine only stops spinning when I unplug it from the wall.
If it is helpful, it feels as if I am connecting the motor directly to the wall, like it's complety bypassing the electronic components. I have opened the front panel hoping to see a busted capacitor but they are all flat and tidy, no bulges of any kind.
I have practically none electronic skill/knowledge but I think it might be a problem with the board itself or the noise filter (although this last one hardly fails I am more inclined for the board fault) and before I send it for repair and spend quite some money I would like to be sure. It would be an issue to have it returned from repair and find out that the problem is in another component.
Does any of you know what might be the root of the problem here? I have never seen this issue anywhere in the internet and I have been searching for over a month with no luck.
