Will not start washing process.
1. Your vacuum tube has simply come off.
2. There is a hole in your vacuum tube,
3. Or you have a bad pressure switch.
1. Pop the top open on the unit and raise it up (for specifically how to do this, I'll need need the make and model number). You may need to disconnect wires from lid switch, noting where they go to put them back.
2. Locate a clear rubber-like tube come from under the control panel and going down the the bottom of the tub where it is connected to a small nipple. If it is not connected there, reconnect making sure it fits snug. You're problem is solved.
3. If it is connected, disconnect it and gently pull the end of the tube to you. Inspect if for holes or cracks or cuts. If it looks good, put the end of the tube (you may want to clean it if it's dirty) and blow air in it, keeping the pressure up and listen for a click under the console panel. Try again. If you hear the click, listen for air escaping from tube, maybe a pin hole or more.
4. If you do not hear the click when air pressure is applied, you have a bad pressure switch and it must be replaced, assuming the tube is actually connected to the pressure switch under the control panel.
5. Replace tube onto nipple near the bottom of the tub and replace the top. Reconnect lid switch.
6. Take control panel off and insure vacuum tube is connected to pressure switch. If it is, remove tube and blow pressure directly into pressure switch. If you hear no click, the pressure switch is bad.
To help you further or help you find the part, I will need the make and model number.
Good luck, this problem is more simple than it sounds.
