    Where abouts is the inline fuse?

  • Melinda Henderson Feb 17, 2008

    We have checked behind the main panel, but still trying to find where the fuse is......

    This is a Smart Drive Excellance. Is that similar to Eco smart?

  • Melinda Henderson Feb 18, 2008

    No thank you. We got a service tech in and he fixed it for $334aud, it was the switch that shorted the PCB out.

I have the manual here post your email and I will send it to you here are somethings to check in the mean time

12.1 No Power
If the machine appears dead, and there is no response from pressing the power button, then check
the following.
 Check the supply voltage and that the machine is plugged in and switched on.
 Remove the lid and the console.
 With the power supply isolated, physically check all the plug connections to the Motor Control
 With the power supply switched, on check all voltage readings as described in section 6.
 Prior to replacing a Motor Control Module, check all resistances of the components as
described in section 7. We also recommended that a visual inspection of the motor and pump
area be carried out. Check for corrosion and signs of water leaking as well as damage that
may have occurred to any of the wiring harnesses.

Washer wont quit filling even when turned off

If you unplug it and it wont stop, the valve is jammed open with debris etc. It should be replaced. If it stops filling when you unplug the power, there is something wrong with the control board and it is still sending power to the valve even when off.

Why won't it turn on?

Must be power button or the programmer then, you will need a repair person to diagnose from here.
Of the quote for repair is high consider a new machine. I have found that once a device breaks it may be the start of a habit

Check the circuit breaker in your fuse box has not tripped, if it has reset it.
Check the fuse in the power plug.
Try plugging something else into the power socket to see if that wirks.
If the wall socket/outlet has power you should get some sign of life from the washer even if it is only lights.
This should , hopefully, allow you to open it

LG washer model wm2301hw won't turn on

We had the same problem (washer would not turn on). The problem was a small fuse blown in the power noise filter unit. The unit is a plastic block near the top of the washer on the inside - connected to the power cord. It is a very commonly produced unit and goes in a number appliances. The fuse inside fails frequently (so I hear) and is extremely difficult to replace due to the protective-covering material so it's easier to just replace the whole unit. I purchased a replacement unit for about $30.

Very easy fix:

1. Unplug the washing machine.
2. Take off the top of the washing machine (two screws in the back)
3. Identify the noise filter unit (top of washing machine, hanging on the right with the power cord attached to it).
4. Remove with one screw and unplug the two cables going into the noise filter unit. Slide out the unit.
5. Put in new unit. Screw it in, and plug the two cables into it.
6. Put the top of the washing machine back on (not necessary to test if the new unit works)
7. Plug in washer and run.

Washing machine water

Firstly, do you have water at the moment? Then, your power must be on and the taps turned to on - hot, cold or both.
Secondly, the cycle must be selected and activated; by pulling or pushing the control knob.
Still not working? Check power to the house. Switch on a house light. Does it work? Plug something else into the power point. Does this work. If not, then the fuse may be blown. ELCB (safety switch) may have tripped. Reset, replace etc;
Lights on but nothing working - then switch off, unplug the machine, turn off the taps and disconnect the hoses to the machine. Most washing machines have inline water filters and these can become blocked. Clean/replace and try again.
Beyond this it may be that the solenoids are broken and need replacing. A multimeter could confirm this.

Washer does not start, replaced lid switch, and timer still doesn't work. when parts mentioned were replace. washer did start and fill but then stopped.

Hello there and welcome to fixya
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems i will post some information on some more parts that need to be tested ok?
Washing machine is dead, wont start Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer 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 that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a 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. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

Power will not turn on. Tried unplugging for 60

unplug the unit and open the back cover of the washer. Locate the fuse which is located in side of the power cord. Open the plastic fuse holder and replace it with same value.

Help! My fisher paykel washing machine won't stop filling up!

If the water continues to fill even if unplugged the water valve is sticking and needs replaced. if removing power turns the water off the water level pressure switch is bad or there is something plugging the sensor tube somewhere.

My washer won't turn on, I checked circuit breaker and plug. Model # MAV4758AWW

Below is information provided by They also provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams.

You may also find this to be of assistance;

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
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.
