Let's start with the basics....first have you checked the breaker for the outlet the machine is plugged in to? If not start there...if so we had a similar problem where I unplugged the machine for about an hour, then plugged it back in and it was fine. Third thing to check and this is more for top loaders along the bottom of the front of the machine there is sometimes a reset switch if one exists on your machine push it in...Good Luck.

Help my washing. Machine lights up but it's dimmed light not as bright as normal will not start

Could be a bad circuit breaker or outlet. You need to check the outlet with a voltmeter. If it is ok then i would think the washing machine internal power supply is going out.

I think that either:

A: you have too many things running on that circuit (space heater perhaps?) or...

B: your washing machine needs a repair.

Washing machine problem

I would also think it is a lid switch although this sounds like a pump is freezing up the works, can you hear a hum when you pull out the dial? If you can I would pop the access panel on the back and pull the dial out watching the motor to see if it pulls to one side.

Power cuts when 'on' switch is released!

Easy, remove the top the switch unclips and slides out from the front panel, you cannot sucesfully repair these switches so a replacement should be obtained
