Machine does not power on. Control panel does not light up. Machine does not beep when plugged in.

Hi there,I'm afraid it sounds as though the main computer board is dead or the display panel where the buttons are is dead.Also i'm not sure with this model but with some of them the power runs thru the water pump before powering the the main board,if the pump is open circuited or dead then it may not be providing power to the main board.With a multi meter the pump can be tested for a circuit,it should read around 34ohms.or take the pump out (its quite easy) & take it somewhere & have this test done to it.this could be the cheapest way out & a good starting point. Ps if you recently had a bad electrical storm or power surge then that might be it..dead main board..In my tips section i mention the importance of unplugging these types of machine after washing to keep them safe.I hope i have been helpful in some way.Ide be glad to hear how you went.cheers Chris

My washer went on control lock and now it wont turn on i tried to unplug it but nothing works

Would plug something else into outlet to make sure your power supply is ok. If you remove bottom panel in front(three screws) or top panel(three screws in back and slide panel back slightly to raise off) there should be a tech sheet with some suggestions. If it is less than a year old call for warranty service. Keep kids away with panels off. If unit is completely dead a guess would be main control board on top, but that is just a guess.......

GE washer Model S3600DOWN will not turn off water. overflows WHY?

suspect water level control they call it a pressure switch
there is a quarter inch line that runs from tub to pressure switch that line can sometimes plug requiring line be removed from pressure switch and cleared
this web page shows a breakdown of commom top load ge washing machine level control is located in top panel
before opening top panel unplug washer from wall
if clearing line does not work level control will probably need to be replaced suggest take picture or draw out
where three wires are hooked before removing part or
change 1 wire at a time to avoid mixing up wiring

We went camping for 2 days came home and the calypso washing machine won't start. We ran a load the day we left with no problems. The outlet works fine, we even tried plugging it into another outlet just...

The same happened with my Sears Calypso machine. The common problem is the front display panel. If you are able to find one at a very good price, post it here.

The first thing to check here is by opening up the top of your washer. Plug off the mains. Check to see the wires are connected to the inlet valve at the point where the water enters your machine, tighten the wires. Then shut off the wall faucet, unscrew the hoses, check the fine mesh at the machine valve entrance, clean out. Refit the hoses carefully without cross threading, open the wall faucet full to check for leaks; advisable to keep faucet fully open. Check to see that there is no leak at the dispenser end of the pipes. You are done now, try the machine (with the top open, caution)

If there is still no water, just change the inlet water valve, you can do it yourself.

Plug off the wall; dismantle & clean out your pump. This is if your filter is clean.
