The motor switch has seized you may try taking the dryer apart down to the motor and see if you can move the centrifical switch bushing it is behind the motor switch and has 2 springs on it move in the direction away from the switch several times and it may free up and be ok otherwise you will need to replace the switch

Dryer control panel wont light up and told I need a new panel


You can buy the control board yourself for about $200 and install it yourself. It could be a fuse inside that had blown too, Email me at buffalonymann@yahoo.com if you have any questions

No power to washing machine but fuse is ok...


could be 2 things 1)try closing the door and banging the machine on the front next to where your door catch goes into the washer if it starts could have a lose wire or be faulty 2)if no1 doesnt work than it will be your mains filter which if blown power doesnt get to your machine if the machine is brand new and has manufacturers warranty then these are covered through the warranty and any tampering will void your warranty though should be covered for no less than a year
