Washer won't start

We lost power this morning & now the washer won't start. Dryer is on same circuit & works fine. Checked fire to the wall plug & fire is coming into the washer behind the control panel. Doesn't appear to have power coming to lid switch. Any suggestions?

Maytag dryer 2003 was working great I took one dried load out put another in and started the dryer. Working just fine then I found a wet garment that I dropped so I opened dryer door added this item...

When your dryer won't start, it could be a number of problems from a broken door latch or start switch to an exhaust duct blocked by lint. It could even be a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

The first step in troubleshooting any electrical appliance is to ensure that it is plugged in and receiving power. While dryer plugs do not come loose easily, it can happen.

For more troubleshooting tips, read Dryer won't start for possible causes, signs to look for and things you can do. I hope this helps!

GE Model WDSR2080DBWW Washer spins very fast sounds like it going to run thru the wall

If it really is doing that, you may have a serious electrical problem in your washer's location, particularly if the washer had been working fine, and "all of a sudden" started this.
I would take a long extension cord, and plug it in elsewhere, that you know is exactly the right voltage, witnessed by (for example), a light bulb that is burning the correct brightness.
I would plug the washer in the this extension cord, and see if then runs the way it used to..
If you have incorrect voltage at the plug for the washer, you really should shut down the whole area until it is checked by an electrician, as a fire could be imminent.
Be blessed.

I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a fault it is extremely difficult for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My compact dryer, Model LEW0050PQ 2 will not power up when the On/Off button is depressed nor does the red power on light come on or the aural beep sound indicating that the unit is ready to engage the...

After removing the dryer from on top of the washer, I found it was easy to expose the back of the control panel containing the Power On/Off switch. A quick check of the switch's continuity confirmed the bad switch. However, after reinstalling the switch connectors and plugging the dryer back in, the switch started working. It appears the problem is intermitant.

While the internals of the dryer were exposed, I also checked the door switch (which was good) and sprayed electrical contact cleaner on all of the switches and vacuumed out the dust and reassembled the dryer (which is now working) and ordered a new Power On/Off switch so I will have it when the switch mis-behaves the next time.

The most difficult part was removing the dryer from on top of the washer where both units are built in to a wall of cabinets.

The power will not come on. The circuits are fine and it is plugged in.

Mine did that too- faulty door switch- buy an extra one though- mine just went out again!

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryier (aquarius 1200)

i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe
