Question about Washing Machines
could be 2 things 1)try closing the door and banging the machine on the front next to where your door catch goes into the washer if it starts could have a lose wire or be faulty 2)if no1 doesnt work than it will be your mains filter which if blown power doesnt get to your machine if the machine is brand new and has manufacturers warranty then these are covered through the warranty and any tampering will void your warranty though should be covered for no less than a year

Try disconnecting the heater element first and see what happens if still same unplug motor and try again, it is a process of elimination.

SOURCE: no power
This is a lack of neutral feed to the door switch. The feed comes from the circuit board which is where the fault lies. However if fitting a new board i would advise replacing door switch as it was probably the initial cause.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

Turn off the water supply to the machine
Take the drain hose off the back of the machine and drop it into a bucket , you will need to do this several times.(Take off any clips that stop it from being laid flat on the floor)
Once all of the water is out of the machine try powering it up again, if it lights up do a spin to get the clothes dry , leaving the outlet hose in the bucket.
If that works then once the machine is dry try turning on the water supply with the machine turned off , if water runs into the machine then you have a faulty fill valve.
If that is ok then check the pressure switch and Air Bell which sits on the back of the main drum you could have a soap ball in the Air Bell which will false out the machine and cause overfilling
If there is no power check the mains supply to the wall outlet then the plug top wiring and any fuse fitted inside the plug top
After that it is down to a man with a test meter
