Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR WASHER before beginning any service procedure.
Some of the things you should try is to check the power plug to see if the washer is plugged in properly, try holding down the switch or start button to see if it starts, if it does it may have a loose wire on the back side of the washer or it also might have a defective switch and needs replacement. Please check you r owners manual for the trouble shooting items to see if you can self – diagnose the problem or free to contact the manufacturer to see if they can assist you. Not knowing the manufacturer, try going to the website like – Example:
www.Whirlpool.com or www.Maytag.com to see if they have any suggestions. Or call the factory authorized dealer who does repairs, and if it is less tan one year it would fall under the factory warranty and maybe it will be covered under the manufacturers warranty, you don’t want to service it yourself if it is covered under the manufacturers warranty, it might void the warranty.
Thanks, Don
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Washer won't start


see the instruction. God bless you

  1. No power to the washerMake sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
  2. Lid switchThe washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

Please see if there is a lock installed into for safety. Press and hold power/start/pause as power is plugged.
Make sure that the door switch is working open and close once again to check as this can also stop the machine from operating.

I had the same problem with my LG washer today. I found another post that said to hold down the start pause button 5 seconds, plug back in so you have power, run on drain/spin at highest spin speed. I did it and so far after each load it has not shut down.
