When pressing the power button to switch on, nothing happens


You have not given us much info to work on Errol, such as what make/model you're having the problem with? Also, what country are you in?
Going back to basics, you need to check two things first.
1. does your wall-socket outlet work for other things?
2. Assuming yes to the above, the appliance fuse is of course in your plug (unless your country has different arrangements to the UK). The appliance itself will have no other 'user replaceable' fuses that are accessible.
If 1 & 2 are unsuccessful at resolving your issue, then you've likely suffered a control panel failure in your appliance (an expensive repair unless you have insurance).
Good luck

LG WD-1265TP washing machine household electricity cut out switches off the power


I think that either:

A: you have too many things running on that circuit (space heater perhaps?) or...

B: your washing machine needs a repair.

Best of luck

Washer does not start, replaced lid switch, and timer still doesn't work. when parts mentioned were replace. washer did start and fill but then stopped.


Hello there and welcome to fixya
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems i will post some information on some more parts that need to be tested ok?
Washing machine is dead, wont start Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

828 washer is completely dead.. an no its not the fuse! seems like it might be the on off switch?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If the switch 'feels' OK it possibly is OK but it could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Good luck,

No power to machine. power socket is live as i have plugged in another appliance which works. does the machine have fuses?


Sounds like you need to have the mains suppressor checked out by an engineer.
Someone had this happen to them as well.
I checked fuses - ok I drained detergent water -ok I checked filter and pump - ok Machine will not start. Next step - contact customer service, however under the Sales of Goods Act 1979 I am contacting the supplier as the machine is new.
I hope you get your machine running soon.
Update The fault was as follows: Bosh Washing Machine WAE2446 Fault reported: DEAD Material: SUPPRESSOR Description: REPLACED FAULTY MAINS SUPPRESSOR
In a nut shell. The washing machine failed (went dead) because the mains suppressor was faulty. The suppressor normally filters out unwanted interference from the washing machine mains electrical supply. The part was replaced and the washing machine came back to life.

My hotpoint aquarius wdl540 keeps tripping the switch on the main fuse for the kitchen plug sockets


hello, the reason for this because theres a dead short inside washer or the socket may have a loose wire check all the earth wires inside the washer and the sockets get back to me if you still have trouble
