Points to ponder (and check) :
1 : in the washing mode in many washers the drum will not turn unless the water level "pressostat" is activated.
2 : the water inlet valve is often wired in series with the heating element, so if the heating element is burned out, no water will enter the drum, resulting in the washing mode to fail.
(that may sound strange, but works fine. To activate the heater the water inlet valve is shorted out temporally.
Advice : FIRST
disconnect the power lead from the socket, and put the cable on the ground in front of you : safety first!
Only after that is done you can safely do electrical measurements with a multimeter.
Remember that the combination of water and electricity in a washing machine are widow makers...
