Turn off electric and check each wire for continuity (low ohms). There could be blown fuse or a in-line circuit breaker that has tripped.

1991 Toyota Pickup - wont start....battery is ok

faulty starter relay, faulty starter, faulty starter switch, (not to be confused with key switch), how do you know your battery is ok? it could lose its charge overtime/have a dead cell, might have enough energy for lights, but not a high draw thing like a starter. Make sure your battery has 12.5 volts, 13.5 volts being nice and fully charged. check battery connections at both ends, battery and starter ends.

Washer pump does not work wipers are OK

There is a little pump motor right on washer fluid tank itself. The motors regularly go bad. Simply replace the motor and that should fix your problem. I hope this helps you out. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

Need hook up diargam for 240 volt 30 amp washer dryer residential xyo-gnd for free .like your web site said. or i will presume this is just a scam trying to lure people in for some...

Hi Watsonelecco!

No scams here... most of us on FixYa are like me.... we enjoy helping people out with their everyday problems. I work nights and do this as a hobby... I used to teach advanced electronics and Radar for the US Navy.
It is difficult for me to give you a diagram for "xyo-gnd" since the term is not familiar to me, even though I worked as an industrial field service engineer. My guess is that you need to connect your washer/dryer to your electrical outlet.
First thing.... I need to know where you are located, and what type of power service you have coming into your home. Most US homes are wired for 115 Volts and require a separate input for 230 volt appliances. Most European, Australian, and Asian homes are wired for 230 volts and connecting your washer/dryer will be simpler, but still require some work.
The first thing we will need to know is how the power comes into your home and how it is distributed. Look at your circuit breaker panel. You will have a mains coming in that feeds a 2 pole "main" breaker- it will be rated at between 100 and 300 AMPS in most homes.
Next... the other breakers in the panel.... how many are "2 pole" breakers (what looks like 2 switches connected together) and how many are single pole? Only a 2 pole breaker can supply power for your washer/dryer.
Now, you need to determine which of the two pole breakers are rated high enough for 30 amp service. If none say 30 amps or higher, you will need to install a new breaker and run a 10/3 AWG type UF cable to where you are installing the washer/dryer. Find a recepticle that matches your washer/dryer plugs, and install it with the black wire to the brass lug, the white wire to the silver one, and the green wire to the green lug.
Once you have the wiring done, you will be good to go!
If you already have a dual breaker rated at 30 amps supplying an outlet where you are installing the washer/dryer, match up the plugs/outlets the same way... black wire to brass, white to silver, green to ground. You may have to purchase either the correct outlet, or (more likely) the correct plug, since most units do not ship with power cords.

My maytag neptune has no power any suggestions

Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.

meny things will keep unit from coming on
1 battery holder clips bad/missing
2 fuse/resittor open
3 bad volume control switch
4 13.8v jack on side of unit bad/unsoldered from pcb

look at side power jack first is it loose
look at battery clips are they ok
can you hear the power switch clik on turn on
with back cover off find a ground put -6 volt on it and then find the power switch apply +6 to it and see if radio comes on.if radio comes on check that side power jack.

Maytag mav7000aww washing machine doesn't work

Ok, I figured it out, at least my problem.  The short answer is that you need to replace the lid switch assembly, maytag mav7000aww part no. 12001908.
To verify you have the same problem as I do, remove the rear cover to the control panel (three philips head screws and two machine bolts, see no. 14.)  Use a volt meter to verify that you have power coming into the lid switch assembly harness (black wire).  Use the volt meter to verify that you have no power coming out of the lid switch assembly harness (red and yellow wires.)
To further verify that you have the same problem as I do, remove the wire harness from the lid switch assembly and use a ohm meter to verify that the switch is not allowing power transmission.  In the lid closed position (lid switch depressed), use ohm meter to test line-to-motor and line-to-machine connections.
If you verify that you have no power down-circuit of the lid switch assembly using the two methods above, then you have my problem.  In this case, you can purchase the part noted at top for less than $25.
