The on and off switch wont turn on

Check Power
Check the outlet by plugging an appliance into the same outlet the washer was plugged into an running the appliance a hair dryer works good for this it will draw some amperage. If it works fine move on.

To check the control remove the top panel and then remove the console to access the wiring to the control. Find the wire feeding the control from the main power cord. If you cannot visually see this refer to the tech sheet or service manual. Connect voltmeter to the 2 wires feeding the control if it is recieving power and it does not respond replace control

My washer was on when the power went out. Now all the controll pannel lights are on and a buzzer is going off. I tried unplugging etc.

It would help to know your manufacturer and model, but most machines will react fairly well to one of the following to reset them.

Power the machine off at the mains, hold the power button in and power it back on with the power button pressed it. Depending on the machine you will get a beep or buss or light flash and then the machine will reset and all should be well.

Option 2 is a simple disconnection from the mains for 20 minutes and when you power back up, the machine may well have reset.

If this doesn't work, drop a comment back and include your make and model and I will see if I can come up with some more ideas for you

Power button beeps three times. Lock button works. Nothing else works.Technician diagnosed microcomputer control board. Replaced board control 8183258. Still dead!- he never called

Try to unplug power cord for 10 minutes and plug in. If you have manual on hand, follow instruction to find error code on your machine. Please tell problems before it went dead. Thanks.

My GE Profile model WPRB8050D0WW won't start!

  1. Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT.

  2. Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in.

  3. Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.

No power to machine - there is power to the plug

I had the same thing happen. I took the top off and realized that the power cord from the factory went out the back.....back in an opening.....across the back but on the inside and out another opening. The part crossing the back on the inside was near the motor and belt and was cut through the hot wire and ground. Someone has to be an idiot to run the wire in the design on the inside.

Lights on Washer Machine flash but Washer doesn't work

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Kenmore het3 washer just quit, no power.

If power to the unit then most likely the machine control went bad and would need to be replaced. There are no fuses or reset buttons. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!
