The machine will do nothing until the door or lid is detected as closed

I have a Electrolux front loading washing machine and it will not spin. The belt appears fine but I cannot manually spin the drum.

If you cannot move the drum by hand you will not be able to fix the problem yourself by playing with the diagnostics.

A locked drum is also one symptom of a seized electric motor.

The orange on/off button lights up. however the start/pause button does not.

It's hard to tell by the way you've phrased the question whether or not the button is doing what it is supposed to do, or if it is just the light indicator that is not working. So, I will answer both scenarios. // Press start button fully until you hear machine start; (usually less than one full second). In other words, hold button in until ''start'' is _heard_. After start has begun, holding button for 3 full seconds will ''pause'' the cycle. After ''pause'' pressing button again (just like first time) will restart cycle (i.e. ''take it off pause''). But while ''paused'' holding the button in again for any longer than a fraction of a second will cancel the wash. // TO CLARIFY: Press button for approx 1 second to start wash. After start has begun, pressing button for 3 seconds will ''pause'' wash. While ''paused'' pressing button again for less than a second (i.e. ''quick press of button'') will ''resume'' wash. Also, while ''paused'', pressing button for longer than a second (usually 3 seconds) will cancel the wash. // If the machine is (otherwise) working correctly, and your complaint is a light not lighting, then it is just a bad LED light. Best bet is leave it alone. Or, you could buy a new switch if the LED is _inside_ the switch. If the LED is on the control panel, then do yourself and big favor and don't mess with it.

Start/pause button is not working on my LG washing machine. All other buttons are working fine?

Problem maybe that the START/PAUSE button has broken loose from the control panel. All the buttons are attached to control panel and "hinged" so when you press the button, the button presses a small button switch on the display control. You may have to order
the Control Panel.. Disassembly is required to inspect.
It would be least likely that the Display PCB is bad..

Maytag Centennial topload washer - Model MVWC200XWO. I interrupted a load of wash by pushing the pause button. The lid unlocked, water drained from the drum and the machine makes a humming noise. It...

Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board. It's like rebooting your computer. I did this to mine and it cleared up the problem. The capacitors on the board need to discharge to completely depower the board. That why unplugging and replugging right away doesn't always work.

My GE washing machine stops agitating for quite sometime and then will restart sometimes on its own or when I lift the lid. It is a WBSE209oA0ww

Ok thanks for reposting with the model number,

Now then my other question is; does it spin without pausing such as it pauses in the agitation mode??

If yes it does also pause in the spin mode i would suspect the lid switch as being the problem,but however you did not mention that it pauses in the spin i am going to assume it spins fine and thusly believe the problem with it pausing only in the wash mode is going to a problem with the main control board,sincein the past on that exact style washer the water level part of that control board would think it wasn't full of water and pause while it finally determined that the water level was correct and start again. By replacing the control board the washer should work fine and no longer pause in the wash mode.

The part number for that control board is WH12X10176 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at

Centennial washer, will fill with water, wont spin or agitate, power is good

Easy fix. Lid switch is bad. This is a direct drive machine. Older models would wash but not spin these latest babys won't wash or spin with the lid switch broken. To access te switch you flip up the control by using a putty knife to release each end. Older models had a screw that needed to be removed, not so with the newest ones. The switch has 2 hot wires and a ground wire. Jump them 2 hot wires and see if she runs
