Washer wont turn on

My washer won't operate. It won't come on at all. Panel lights do not light up. Outlet checks fine: another appliance works in this outlet.

    I tried your suggestion. My electric tester tells me that current is flowing through the appliance cord and into the control panel.

    Any other ideas?

Check the plug of your washer, the fuse in your washer's plug also. You start from there......

I have a new Maytag mvwc565fw. The Clean Washer Cycle was interrupted from a power outage and the unit is full of water and the lid is locked (light solidly illuminated). Trying to start any other cycle...

Resolution:If the washer does not accept inputs from the control panel, follow the Hard Reset steps below to reset the control:

Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.

Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.

Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

Note: If the Hard Reset does not work, there may be an internal failure with the washer, that requires service.

My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.

Washer Not Filling:


  • Door Not Closed and Locked
    • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
  • Delayed Start Feature
    • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
  • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
    • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
    • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

46462 unit will not turn on

Hello anava214
Welcome

You said, your washer will not power up . Even the lights on the display panel are not turning on . And you have checked that the power outlet works.

Did you unplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it back in?

This can resets the system.

How old is the washer?

No panel lights!

Solution - MEASURE voltage in outlet with digital meter and if it is not ~115 V or very close do nothing - wait till it gets to norm.

Longer explanation:
I had similar problem today. Dryer fine, washer (front loader Affinity 6000) dead. Electric power there. Day before had no electricity for few hours. Turned out to be that this thing is sensitive to voltage. I have now from 101 to 103 volts and it needs something close to 115. I have almost disassembled it but it was hard to do and no manual on web (except to purchase for $15). So, after removing back paned and few screws from front I have turned my attention to my UPS I have for TV - it sometimes would blink with blue diode (means it is starting). I thought why... Then I have luminescent (energy saver) lamps around house and those are not sensitive to voltage so lights are fine. In bathroom however I have halogens and those seemed dim. This time I have looked at my tester again and noticed that it shows ~101.2 volts. So I am taking UPS from my TV and moving it to laundry, plug UPS to outlet, washer to UPS - washer still dead. I unplug UPS from outlet and washer comes alive...

Hope this helps.
