How can I fix a hoover optima washing machine?

My problem is that the washing machine will not turn at all. The door locks but no light or sign that anything is happening. I've checked plug and fuse. Even tried plug in a different socket still no joy. Normally before if I had any problems an error code would appear so could always know what the problem would be and could fix it.

We can test your module.

The machine needs water to begin - does water enter when you ask it to start?

Your water might be turned off or the water inlet valve may have failed.

Good Luck...

You'll have probably seen this when you did a search to help yourself, but just in case:

If wall socket & fuse are OK but washing machine won’t start:

The most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the main light on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works.

However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock, or the door catch not activating it properly, or a faulty on off switch, or even the main control module. With some washing machines (eg Indesit and Hotpoint) even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.

Therefore you need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault and need a continuity test meter. So if it isn't the wall socket or the plug, and you can’t see any loose wires you may be be better getting an appliance engineer to trace it.

Best I can offer.
