It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

My washing machine has no power to it

Could have blown a circuit breaker in your electrical panel and if you have fuses could blow a fuse. You may have a short some place. Start with checking the cord and the plug its self. If you have a GFI receptacle you may have to reset that as well

Washer wont start back up after breaker blew

If it blew the breaker then something inside has shorted out. You should definitely not use it until a qualified engineer has opened it inspected and measured and determined the cause of the short.

Unplug your machine right away-you have a dead short it could be wiring that has rubbed through -check the wiring for any bare spots or rubbing on sharp edges,or its possible the motor is burned up-which means it takes alot of power to start it-more than you house hold wiring can come up with without blowing the breaker-hopefully just a wire though-cheers Denny

Power went off in the house and the washer won't start up

It is likely that the circuit breaker or fuse which sends power from your electrical panel to your washer overloaded when the power came back on and either kicked if it is a circuit breaker or blew if it is a fuse.

Look in the circuit panel. If you have breakers look for one that is about half way off. Turn it on and all the way off and back on again to reset it. If you have fuses look for a blown fuse and replace it with the same amperage fuse as the one in there now. good luck and let me know as if this isnt the problem I have additional steps for you to take. I want to help you get your machine up and running so let me know.
