Press the start button and nothing happens - no lights, no nothing. Prior to this, it was working fine.

This is what i've done so far...

Using a multimeter, i checked...

  1. Socket
  2. Plug fuse
  3. Power at the plug cable connector (which connects to the noise filter)
  4. Power by back-probing the other connector of the wire that goes to the washer at the noise filter (check out picture below).
  5. Random connectors at control board

What else can i do to find out where the problem is?

Usually the door lock needs to be closed, as this puts the mains on, ideally you will need a wiring diagram for your machine.

The door was closed when tested. I also depressed the spring loaded lock with a screwdriver just in case the door was defective, no go.
