I am in the UK and I have a the above model washing machine. It's obviously 'a few years old' but til now has been a wonderful machine.
Put on a wash yesterday, went upstairs, came down a little while later, smelled burning, opened utility room door to smoke and a strange noise.
Immediately turned off machine, looked inside and it looked as though it had just filled and not moved (water clear). It was making a noise as though it was turning, but a different noise (I think, more high pitched) but the drum was obviously still.
Any ideas as to what the problem is? Is my machine dead beyond repair?
