    Hi -

    I am certain that the A/C supply is working correctly.

    My thought was the door interlock, but after opening and closing it many times still no lights on at all.

    Next step?

    I'm not afraid to go into the machine if I can just get some guidance.

    -Daniel

    OK -- I have removed the door interlock device.

    My next question is: how do I test it?

    The mechanism has four connectors marked #2 #3 #4 #5 where the wires connect to.

    How can I test connectivity?

    Looking at the (plastic) mechanism of the interlock, I see no movement that would open/close a circuit. Perhaps there is a piece missing?

    Thoughts???

    Thanks.

    -DL

    Hi Vinay -


    No, I do not get any lights coming on at all.


    I have replaced the door switch, but still no lights on the panel.


    I am unsure how to proceed from here.


    Any thoughts/recommendations?


    Thanks.

Do any lights come on when you power it on? It is not only electrical circuits, it is also electronic circuits.

Hi,

Check the following :-

No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.



If you are getting power, like LED are working, You might have damaged the control board.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi,
The washingmachine wont start due to many reasons. check that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp ,as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse
.Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse . If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module.DO NOT work on live washingmachine.Check these .Hope these helps.
Thanks
Smith.

My LG tromm dryer wont heat and i don't know how ignite the pilot


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

An OE light comes on and the washer won't drain


I had something similar. It turned out that one of the option keys was stuck in an "in" position (did not jump back out after it was pressed) which disabled the functions of all the other keys. The lights in main dial came on but it was not possible to do anything else.
