    Had a power serge in my home. Electrical problem has been fixed and outlet is good. However, my GE top load washing machine will not start. It has a push button "start", and no reset buttons on the control panel. Is there a reset on the motor? and if so, how do you remove the front panel?

Sometimes, there is a reset built into one of the knobs on top. There could also be a reset button on the control panel. I missed this years back when mine did the same thing. I forgot about the reset because I never had to use it... Also, if you have it plugged into a GFI receptacle (the kind with a test and reset button) reset the receptacle.

In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

My Neptune Top Load fills the water, the motor doesn't start.


If i understand correctly you are stating the breaker shut down which means the house breaker for the outlet power kicked out. You might try plugging something else into the outlet to see if it also kicks out, say a vacuum cleaner of a drill.

You need a amp clamp to test for something shorted or grounded (or ohm out windings) which requires trained service........you do not want to get a shock

Dishwasher won't start. Electrical breaker is on.


Sounds like your door switch, You can try to adjust this usually it is just two screws on the unit where the latch is.

My maytag neptune has no power any suggestions


Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.

Washing machine causing power failure in whole


Best answer to this is the circuit outlet is connected to is overloaded < to many items are plugged into it > could be 15-20 watt breaker and usage amounts to more than wattage allowence. If you can lighten the load on circuit by removing things < t.v.,appliances,lights,etc.> from the other outlets that are affected < shutting down when breaker trips > then you can compromise and use washer any time. The other suggestion is to dedicate a breaker to washer, < by adding breaker and wiring to outlet for washer >.

Model 417.94802301 stackable with electrical haywire?


you got a problem with your power supply for sure. check and make sure both your breakers are on inside the fuse box. turn them completely off and them back on(there should be 2 linked together for this unit. if that ok try to gt behind the unit and check the incoming power source(make sure wiring on rear of dryer is in tact. def sounds like inadequate power supplied to unit
