Check the outlet to which you connect your washer; check the plug of your washer, wires, fuse.

Lead display is keep on flashing up on start sequence


Have you tried checking the fuse or the circuit breaker? Are both the washer and dryersharing the same two outlet duplex outlet or are they on two totally separate outlets? Just to eliminate/isolate the outlet question after you check the circuit breakers or fuses in your fuse box, try plugging the dryer into a separate outlet. If like many people you do not have an extra outlet in your laundry area, try plugging another item into the dryer outlet to check it for power. This is if you are talking about a gas dryer that works on a 120-volt electrical outlet. If it is an electric dryer it will be on a 230-240 volt outlet with a special plug. If you have an old circuit panel that is still using fuses as opposed to modern circuit breakers and if this Is an electric dryer, you would have a 240 volt disconnect plug more than likely inside the panel and if you firmly grab the handle and yank it straight out, you will see that the disconnect plug will have two short cigar shaped Buss Fuses in it. If this is the case one or more of those fuses could be blown. Depending on the electrical requirements of the dryer those two fuses amy need to be between 20-30Amp rated. or else if you have the manual take a look in it , perhaps one of the fuses is gone .

We moved our Kenmore stacked washer/dryer from downstairs to upstairs - now it will not work. any ideas?


If the dryer didn't get banged around or damaged when you moved it, it sounds like it might be a power issue. Is the outlet where the dryer plugged into controlled by a switch? If so, make sure the switch is on. Is it on an electrical circuit with any other large devices (air conditioning unit, refrigerator, etc.)? If so, the dryer probably isn't getting enough power. Try plugging it in somewhere else, on a different circuit (using an extension cord to test it, if you don't want to move it until you're sure) to see if that makes a difference.

Dryer works but washer won't turn on. Washer worked until a few days ago. No warning or events. Just doesn't respond to switch. I can't find a fuse box on the unit itself.


Hi, Have you tried plugging a lamp into the outlet or plugging this into another outlet/extension cord. Check the receptical to see if it is a ground fault style. If it is, push the reset button on it.
If there is power to the washer, there could be a timer issue. UNPLUG the washer. Remove the 2 screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Some screws are located in front coerners and some in the back corners.
Once the control panel is loose, locate the wire harness on the timer and try wiggling it to get better connection. Plug the washer back in and see if it starts.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Purchased bosch washer was24460uc but plug does not match outlet but does it plug into back of dryer or do i need an electrician?


Your washer is has a plug that will only plug into the back of the dryer. Because it can handle the same voltage that the dryer uses which is 220v

Does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?


If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.

Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
