Question about Washing Machines
It looks like something burned inside. it's smells and power went down. It could be the cable or something else..... . Now, when i turn it on - all lights on right side are only flashing and nothing is happening. Does it sound like something serious and unrepairable?
Is your washer getting power? The first things to check are your circuit breaker, lid switch, or fuse box. After making sure there is power or no power to the appliance, you can start troubleshooting other problems. To verify there is power at the outlet, try plugging in a small electric appliance such as a hair dryer or radio.
Sometimes the motor will overheat and then requires a cool down period before it will restart.
Is the machine in a pause cycle? Is the lid up? Washers will not run if the lid is up. There is a lid switch probe that can sometimes become dislodged. This is generally a little plastic piece that is in the hole under the lid on the washer. This probe activates the lid switch when the lid is put down. Manually advance the timer if the pause is too long.
There are some washer models out there that will not run at all until the water is filled to the level that has been selected. Sometimes the mechanical timer knob on certain washers doesn't exactly line up with the graphics on the control panel. You can try advancing the timer slightly and pull the knob out again to see if it will start.
