    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.

Could be the breaker. Sometimes breakers just get old and will not hold when a power surge goes through it as when an electric motor first starts up. You have already replaced the compressor with a new one so I would check out the breaker situation. STAY with the same size breaker

Check for small fuse on circuit board:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
Water heater circuit boards are NOT protected from surge. And reset button does not protect from surge. Nearby lightning can put out any household appliance, especially since more of these things are electronic instead of mechanical.
Install single-use whole house surge protector and replace it after each surge event instead of replacing appliances.

The quickest solution for tankless is to replace whole thing with more reliable tank-type electric heater for $275 from local box store.

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Error code F28 = Serial Communication Error. Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below. 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.
  • Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
  • Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

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
