Power If your washing machine won't start, begin by looking at the power source. First of all, is the washing machine plugged in? If it is, has it tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse? Check and reset the breaker (or replace the fuse) if necessary.

Lid Switch The main control for the washing machine is the switch inside the lid. If this has stopped working for some reason, your washing machine won't start. It's not especially difficult to troubleshoot this on a washing machine. You might have to open the top to access the switch. With the power on, depress the switch and listen for a click. If you don't hear one, the switch MAY BE BAD and will need to be replaced. Confirm defectiveness with a multi meter checking for continuity OHMS. An open circuit reflects a bad switch..
If the switch works but the washing machine still won't start, check to see if your washing machine has a special fuse for the lid switch. It will usually be inside the control panel. If it's blown, you'll need to replace it before the washing machine will start.

Door Interlock The problem could be with the door interlock. If the lights come on but the machine won't start, this might well be the cause. This could either be down to the wiring that runs to the door interlock, or the door catch not activating the interlock itself.

Timer Knob Some models of washing machine use a mechanical timer knob and won't run until the water in the machine has filled to the selected level. If the knob doesn't line up properly with the graphics on the control panel, you can try to troubleshoot the washing machine problem by advancing the timer a little. When you've done this, pull it out a little way and see if the washing machine will start properly.

Overheating If you've run several loads, one after another, without any problem but suddenly find your washing machine refuses to start, overheating could be the cause. The simple way to discover whether this is the problem is to give the machine ample time to cool down, say for a couple of hours, and then try it again. If it works fine, overheating has been the problem and you may have a motor with bad windings.

Water wont go into the machine but the wash light comes on here a clink but dosent fill with water an start cycle help plz


IF YOU ARE SURE THE WATER SUPPLY IS ON. SHUT OFF WATER TO MACHINE AND REMOVE HOSES ON BACK OF MACHINE AND CK SCREEN ON VALVE THEY CAN BECOME PLUGED AND WILL BLOCK WATER FLOW. PUT THE HOSES IN A BUCKET AND TURN ON JUST TO BE SURE IT IS NOT ANOTHER PLUMBING PROBLEM.

Turns on and makes noise but drum dosent move what is wrong . the drum wont move to wash or anything.


Check that the drum is free to move - by rotaiing it by hand. If it rotates very freely - it is likely you need a new drive belt. If the drum is very stiff - and won't move, it is possibly a faulty rear bearing. If both these checks are not the problem, it could be a motor or control board fault. It can be a cheap set of brushes needed for the motor - or a new control board.
It really needs investigation to identify which part is needed before replaements are ordered.
Turn off and unplug before investigating further.

Try to pull out the power-cable from the contact. Wait for at least 30 seconds then reconect it again.
Sometimes that can help but not always. If that dosent help you need to let a profesional repairshop fix your machine.

Good luck
