    Thanks so much!
    I did what you said. Turning completely off and then on again and that was all it needed.
    You are wonderful!

It is likely that the circuit breaker or fuse which sends power from your electrical panel to your washer overloaded when the power came back on and either kicked if it is a circuit breaker or blew if it is a fuse.

Look in the circuit panel. If you have breakers look for one that is about half way off. Turn it on and all the way off and back on again to reset it. If you have fuses look for a blown fuse and replace it with the same amperage fuse as the one in there now. good luck and let me know as if this isnt the problem I have additional steps for you to take. I want to help you get your machine up and running so let me know.

Washing machine does not resumes from where it pause after the power cut. Washing machine model is WAX16161IN. Is there any fault?


it would be unlikely to have a memory setting
normal machines start at the beginning and work through the program
if there is a reason for the pause 9 out of balance , door/lid opening or just pause to go out) that would be held because there is still power to the program board
however on a power outage , it would not know where it was at in the program

Amana front loading washer won't run after power outage. Panle does light up.


Possible that the program controller unit has failed if there is no display or power in the indication. You will need to remove panel to check on the fuse and if the new fuse fails it is possible there are error or hardware failure within the board.
Please remove and check the power panel for shorted drive, rectifier or capacitor, if not the panel must be replaced.

Power in house went out. T.V. wont turn on.


Did you have a surge protector on the TV? Have you tried unplugging it for 5 minutes, if not try that. If it still won't work contact your local electrical power provider and start a claim for damages from the power outage.
