RE : [Amel Yacht Owners] Thomson Washing Machine

Alternatively, and I do hope this is not the case with you, it could be the
current frequency. It happened to me in Hawaï where the washing machine ran
on shore power at 60Hz (as opposed to the European 50Hz it’s designed to
work on) and blew its electronic control board. I had to change the whole
board, located, if my recollection is correct, at the bottom right-hand side
of the machine.

Best regards,

It could be a voltage issue.

The same happened to me here in one of the Caribbean islands
where the shore voltage was insufficient.

If the problem has manifested itself on shore power try running
off your generator.

Hope this solves your problem.

Does anyone have the repair manual for the Thomson Australe 3 washing
machine (used on the SMM)? Mine will not start. I push the start
button, the red light comes on, then nothing: no water, no mechanical
sounds, no electrical sounds, nada. A few seconds later the red light
goes off.
