Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
After a severe thunderstorm the other night which took out our transformer my washer doesn't work, won't even fill, there is water coming to it. the dryer works but not the washer. don't know if it is connected to the storm or not but it worked fine that day. my husband took the control switch for the washer to have it tested and they said that part hardly ever goes so what now? could there be a relay someplace to try?
I'll take a stab at helping you.. If what you said is true in regards to a thuinderstorm, you may have experienced a surge in your power lines that found its way into you control electronics for your washer. Most , if not all of the controls these days are low level voltage components similar to a radio or tv and are sensitive to surges of this kind. The washer may have 'taken a hit' when the transformer failed. The dryer may have also been exposed to the same surge and survived it.Even if they are both plugged into the same power receptacle, there is no guarantee that they would both get damaged or both survive but from your short description of pre and post thunderstorm, there is a good chance your washer controller took a hit. Typically, the control board will activate a solenoid /relay to open a valve and let water into the drum.. but if that board is damaged then that won't operate correctly. Hope that helps...
