Hello Ron,
If you are certain that the receptacle you are plugging the washer into is OK, then it is possible you have a bad cord, a fuse damaged or main circuit board damage. I suspect the cord or fuse might have the highest probability as the problem. I have attached a link for you to get the service manual and check out pages 14 -16 for troubleshooting details. If you can follow a schematic .. there are two fuse internal to the washer that may have gotten dislodged or damaged while in transit.. Also, if you open the washer up to gain access to this hardware, check that all connectors are properly seated on the main board and throughout the washer. You should do that with the washer unplugged

Hope this helps you..

I just bought this thing and it worked at the guys house and now dosent turn on at all help thank you ...

Kevin, first check the wall outlet it's plugged into, to make sure it has power. It may have a loose wire connection or the circuit breaker for that line has been tripped. If you brought the unit home, sitting on it's rear or side, rather than on it's bottom, you will need to wait 6 to 8 hours before using it. As the refrigerant fluids and oil in the compressor need to run back in place.While you're waiting, check the outlet and the circuit breaker in your home's breaker panel.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I just bought the washing machine, got it home and it won't turn on. Do you know what could be the problem? It's an L.G front loader.

I would check the connections on the control board first to make sure they are plugged in good. If you don't find any bad connections then I would replace the main control board.

How I fix an error code on a LG wm2669hna washer that says TE error

The TE error code indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor. First, attempt to clear the error by unplugging the power cord, waiting for 10 seconds, restore the power, and restart the wash cycle. If the same problem happens again, close water tap, unplug the washer because the unit may require service.

Heat/AC unit in working order, plugged in 20Amp outlet.. no fan?

Do you have at least 200 volts at your outlet? Check that first. You said you brought it home from work, so when you plugged it in at home did you plug it into a 120 volt recepticle?

Ge front loading washer was plugged and not draining...we cleared the plug and now still not draining...the pump doesnt start pumping

Try looking at the inside of the pump, the impeller is likely plugged as well. unfortunatley you usually end up having to replace that part if it will not spin again.
