Completely dead, receiving power. Is there a fuse?


You have an easy job to just trace the power cord to the unit, with the line disconnected and using a multimeter it is easy to trace the continuity of the wire to the unit where you can locate iff the line is cut off or the reason the circuit is open.
most often this can be due to the link fuse at this end or a possible break in the line. If these test fine then the power switch/controller unit is faulty.

Machine does not power on. Control panel does not light up. Machine does not beep when plugged in.


Hi there,I'm afraid it sounds as though the main computer board is dead or the display panel where the buttons are is dead.Also i'm not sure with this model but with some of them the power runs thru the water pump before powering the the main board,if the pump is open circuited or dead then it may not be providing power to the main board.With a multi meter the pump can be tested for a circuit,it should read around 34ohms.or take the pump out (its quite easy) & take it somewhere & have this test done to it.this could be the cheapest way out & a good starting point. Ps if you recently had a bad electrical storm or power surge then that might be it..dead main board..In my tips section i mention the importance of unplugging these types of machine after washing to keep them safe.I hope i have been helpful in some way.Ide be glad to hear how you went.cheers Chris

The washer stops and beeps at the rinse cycle. Clothes are not off balance. If I bypass the rinse it did spin until this week. Now it does not even turn on. Is there something wrong with the cold water...


If it is not turning on at all now when you press the power button then the main computer board has blown..OR The pump has blown..some models the power must pass through the pump before it will power the main computer board,if the pump is dead then no power will pass through it to the control board.Just to confuse you a bit more,the pump may have been on it's way out & thats why it worked occassionally but now i fear the pump has taken out the the main board with it.There may have been a slight burning spell leading up to the machine stopping altogether,that would have been the pump cooking.New pump & computer board around $400 aus dollars,done by technician.parts around $200-$250
