First check that the house circuit breaker isn't tripped. If it seems good, unplug the machine and plug a lamp or something in to check receptical. If all seems good let me know.

Hi

To enter Diagnostic Mode turn the power on at the power point and off at the console. Press and hold the WASH TEMPERATURE DOWN button then press the POWER button. Turn the power on at the power point and off at the console. Press and hold the WASH TEMPERATURE DOWN button then press the POWER button. Smartdrive will give 2 short beeps. Now try and start the cycle, if unable to start the cycle then restart the washer and try again. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a fault it is extremely difficult for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your drier. 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.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

As it did not drain properly, leaving water in the machine after the rinse, I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but you have not mentioned whether you were able to check the function of the drain motor itself- it could be blocked/jammed which would account for the machine not stopping (still trying to drain but being unsuccessful). Soaked clothes take ages to dry in a dryer!

Hi,
A few more questions...

Have you taken the hoses off of the back and verified the flow from the hoses??
Have you checked the screens on the back of the washer for blockage??
If it does fill does it work properly???
Have you verified power going to the solenoid valves or mixing block, to allow the water in??

I believe that your problems are related to the lack of water flow to the machine...if you have good flow and no water through the valves and power to the valves then you have a valve problem...

Comment back to me if you have more questions...

Brocken both needles and power went off the machine


I guessing that from what you say broken both needles you are talking about a serger, unless you are using twin needles in a sewing machine
if the power has gone off, have you tried turning off the machine & turning it back on, if that doesn't work then it's possible that the power cord may have gone out, or the on & off switch may have gone out.
the only things broken needles will do is knock the machine out of time or jam it up

Power does not turn on when i push the power button


first make sure there is power to the outlet if it is agfi outlet push the reset button if it clicks its working but inany case plug something in to the same prongs that you know works(eg; lamp,radio,etc to make sure it is working. If it doesn't work go to the circuit breaker and look for a breaker that is not in the on position and turn it off the turn it on to reset it. If the outlet works,check the power cord for cuts fraying or any signs of damage and replace it if it is damaged. if the cord looks fine, check tho door switch(usually a pressure switch that must be fully depressed for the machine to start working. also is ther a power light on the unit? is it a top load or front load? what brand and model # is it?

My machine WA37T26G Fisher & Paykel has no power, it will not turn on.


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The unit not powering on is an indication that it has a power fault.

First, remove the machine's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. It may cool by then and might power on. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electricity entering into the unit.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then the unit is most likely having a power problem.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the machine, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the machine doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the machine.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

If any machine or electronics device doesn't power on, it means its having a power problem. It might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This machine must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the machine turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store within our vicinity.You might also find visible bad component without testing with a meter. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

Not even the light goes on when i push the coins


Most likely, the lid switch or a power problem (plug, outlet, circuit breaker).

Check the lid for a plastic or metal prong that pushes a plastic thing on the washing machine. This is the lid switch. It stops everything if the lid is lifted. If the prong on the lid is broken or missing, it needs to be replaced. If the switch doesn't make a definite 'click' when you manually press it, it is bad and needs replacement (doing this may cause the washer to start agitating, so keep your hands away from the moving parts inside).

If none of this helps, it may well be the coin mechanism and/or timer.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.
