Re: Washing machine not starting

It sounds like you could have a short in one of 3 places – the start button, the timer, or the hot/cold water solenoid.  The start button is the least likely so I’d first check out the solenoid.  Does this happen when it’s set on hot only, cold only, and/or warm water?  If so, probably you’ll have to get at the solenoid by opening up the top.  Disconnect the wires to the solenoid and try again.  If the circuit blows, it’s not the solenoid.  If it doesn’t blow, replace the solenoid.  If it’s not the solenoid, it’s probably a burned timer and you’ll have to replace that.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I would think that the best place to find that sort of information (rather than fixes for problems) would be on the manufacturer's web site or one of your local vendors ;-0)

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
