Another issue is that any wiring diagram or schematic is subject to copyright so no one should be publishing them on the Internet anyway. As far as I know there are no official repair manuals and schematics for UK washing machines and other appliances readily available.
Old Washer Spin Enable Switches: A mercury type spin-stop lid or door safety switch was used on most automatic washer appliance models until very recently. This device is mounted by a bracket to the lid hinge. This position ensures proper operation of the appliance, which depends on mercury within the capsule to make or break the contact. When the appliance owner raises the lid during spin, the mercury in the switch capsule runs away from the switch contacts, and the timer circuit to the spin solenoid is broken.
Once the washing machine is turned on the wires become active and then there is no place for mistakes. Washing machines have become an indispensable house hold product. Taking care of it is important for our easy and manageable day to day life. Understanding your washer and its error signs is important to provide it timely care.
The only sure way to tell if a element is faulty, even if all the above faults are present, is to use whats called a ohmmeter, a ohmmeter is a device used for testing all types of electrical values, including resistance between 2 conductive device. To test if a element is working or not a engineer would connect a ohmmeters live and neutral wires to the corresponding connectors on the element and check for a positive reading, no reading would mean a faulty element, the engineer would also use the ohmmeter to read across both terminals again and the earth terminal on the element but in this case a positive reading would mean a faulty element and a negative reading would mean no fault on the earth to live and earth to neutral connectors
