The washer wasnt used for a couple of months. When I plugged it in the washer lights came on and went off again right away and wont turn back on. I've checked the common sense things like the fuse box and the plug in works. The cord is connected tightly to the unit. Is there a reset button or a fuse in the panel I'm not seeing? The washer worked fine until now. Please Help!!

Sounds like unbalanced now - try to rebalance the adjustable knobs under the washer - we have to rebalance every few months because our floor isn't the straightest. We always know when its time because the washer won't work right.
Probably not a fuse on the machine. Troubleshooting guides always say something like, "check fuses, check breaker" meaning to check for power to the machine first. It's the first thing to check when diagnosing problems. I own a laundromat and had a normally very reliable machine that did everything right but it would not spin. I checked and rechecked everything and at some point it would run again and the next day broke down again. This went on for a couple months. Eventually i put the machine "out of order" and it sat for a week like that. Through trial and error, flipping the breaker on and off it became apparent that it was the breaker causing the problem. When i investigated i realized the 220 breaker had simply pulled away from the bottom and was no longer properly making full contact. It had enough power to perform all the functions but not enough to spin. After reseating the breaker the machine has been trouble free. If i'd checked that first instead of thinking the machine had plenty of power because it seemed to be doing everything else correctly i'd have saved a lot of time and frustration.
But enough about my life lessons. Does your machine have any power at all going to it?
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB. I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,
I just ran into a similar problem. Ours was stuck on Normal with 42 min. Started beeping every couple minutes last night after bad rain storm. Couldn't get it to stop. it would turn off if I hit stop and a couple minutes kater (like 2min) it would come on by itself. Left it unplugged overnight until about 6:00pm. Plugged it back in and it wnt right back to the normal mode after about 2min. HOWEVER, I keft it sit with the lid open and it beeped every couple minutes for a while then suddenly stopped. I checjked it and it is off, hasn't come back on. I haven't tried to run a load through it yet, so I don't know if it is fixed or not..
I had this problem, Un plug machine, I took the filter cover off (flap/door at bottom right of machine, then undo the round filter cover,turn anti clockwise) impeller was jammed (2 nails out of someones pocket!) freed impeller (should turn with finger) once free,put cover back on and away it went!. Hope this might help. John.
I have had the same problem. I thought it was the pressure switch as this is what the error code means - low or high pressure resulting in cut out. I too thought id fixed the problem but it has returned
