Thanks for the question.
What is the model number of the washer please.
It could be the switch in the coin box or the micro computer in the control panel you need a meter to check these two parts to see if their getting power.
I'll check it out and get back to you.
I should tell you that the machine is not in my house. It's at another property that I own.
I went there to try your ideas. I tried to check the coin switch. I couldn't get at it and I didn't have a tool to loosen the coin mechanism. I opened the control panel. I checked the power at the other end of the cord it was good. How do I check the micro computor?
Which wires do I put my leads on? I feel that it's not the coin switch. In standby mode the digital price lights up. It is not lit up. Since I last talked to you my motor scooter was stolen ; my machine keys were in it. Now I have no keys to open the coin box, or the lock on top of the coin switch? Any ideas short of drilling out the locks.I plan to go back to my ailing washer tomorrow. It's 8:00 pm now. Talk to you soon.
Please give me an idea.
Where do I look? How can I get the information that I need? If you were the service man what would you do? What about the coin switch; can I rule that out? Are we zero-ing in on the micro computor?
I appear to have no power. All the digital information doesn't light up(no price). I have power coming to the end power cord inside the control panel. Another expert thought it might be the coin switch or the micro-computer. He said without a wiring diagram it's hard to tell which one. From what I can see , there is only one micro-computer. Also when I look at the parts list for the control panel it shows only one. Would it be safe to say that it must be the micro-computer?
Also my motor scooter was stolen yesterday and the keys to the machine were in it. Have you any ideas how I can get into the washing machine short of drilling the locks?
