I replaced the RPS today. Well I actually replaced the whole motor winding plate because at the time, I didnt realise that the RPS was removable lol.

As soon as I hooked it in, powered on and the machine started :)

Awesome news!!! Thank you again JS and Tronicsmaster for your valued assistance!! Mrs also said to say a huge thankyou, and I am sure the kids will too when they have clean clothes (the washing piled up while I had both machines out of action lol)

I discovered the cabinet of the 6.5kg was actually rusting out on the bottom, probably from the flood we had a few years back, so it was a blessing in disguise for us getting the non working 7.5kg.

The motor winding from the 6.5kg tests fine so I will stick it, the control panel, the agitator etc onto eBay as seperate items :)

Once again, my tribe can not thank you enough :)

now the problem was solved, only temporarily......

The machine has been working perfectly, no problems at all since I put the 6.5 board in and told it it was the 7.5

Well this morning, 10yo daughter decides to "add some of her dirty washing" to the machine" when it was almost finished the final spin cycle.

She lifted the lid just as it started to beep at the end of the load.

The Mrs goes and removes the load, puts another load in and there is no power.......

Unplugged, waited 5 mins, plugged back in, it didnt do the usual lights and beep when first plugged in/.

Ok, I get underneath and check the new 2amp 240v in-line fuse that I placed on the pump, and it was blown.....

Replaced it, plugged in and still dead. (tested power outlet etc)

Open the top and check the mainboard, seems the 2amp ceramic fuse has blown on the board.

The 4amp tests ok (20k shows 0.00 on my meter) but the 2amp shows 1. which means no circuit.

On the ceramic fuse it shows 1.6aT (2.0aT) so is it actually a 1.6 amp or 2amp?? Im confused........

I looked over the mainboard again with the magnifying glass and can see a slight discolouration on one patch, but everything appears to test fine, except the 1.6aT (2.0aT) ceramic.

Would it be fine to replace this with another external fast blow fuse and mount it outside the plastic housing??

Should I replace with 1.6a or 2.0a???

We really cant afford a new machine at the moment, nor even afford to have it looked at :'( Ive been off work 18mths with blood clots, so no income! :'(
