If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
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.

There are some things about the "Check Lint Screen" light you should know. It's a reminder light and doesn't actually check anything. When you select a cycle it should come on and stay on until the Start button is pressed, the door is open or after 5 minutes.

If the Control Lock is not turned on then you may have to replace the console/interface to resolve this problem.

A hard reset is used to describe a reboot process. With the dryer stopped and the control turned off (if possible), unplug the dryer to completely disconnect electrical power. If it is difficult to reach the dryer outlet plug, you can shut off the breaker for the dryer to completely disconnect electrical power. Leave the electrical power completely disconnected for 5 minutes. This will sometimes reset a control board that is stuck due to a power surge or glitch encountered through the electrical lines. Plug the dryer back in to see if the control will operate properly.

If the control does not reset and work normally after the hard reset, then you could have a stuck "touch up" button on the control. The image below describes a diagnostic test mode that can be entered to check the buttons on the control. If you are able to enter this mode, you can check to see if the "touch up" button is stuck. You may not be able to enter this mode with a stuck button, bad user interface control board or a failed machine control board. If the dryer will not go into this diagnostic test and the console will not respond to other cycle selections, then I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the dryer. It is likely that the user interface control board will need to be replaced.

Samsung DV410AGW Dryer My dryer which is brand new will not start. It appears to have an hour glass on the control panel which i have not seen before. dryer will not start even after i unplugged it...


Hi,

Sorry to take so long. I have been talking to Samsung support. the hour glass indicates that the dryer is in a cycle, but as it wont start and you've tried unplugging it, it seems there is a fault. Your dryer is new, so you need to contact Samsung for a service visit:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/service/request

Before doing this, try unplugging the dryer again and this time leave the power off for a few hours - assuming you haven't done this already. It might reset if you do this.

I've pasted a transcript of my conversation with Samsung below. I pretended to be the appliance owner as otherwise they would not answer my questions!

Hope this helps!

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!
