Do you have a model number so I can better assist you and see what can cause your washer to be completely dead?

Tyler, are you still there?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 9 months ago.

Ok perfect. So unfortunately there is no fuse on this model. If the unit is completely dead, either the main power control board has failed or the noise filter is shorted out. You'll need to take the control panel apart and follow the power cord in through the back of the washer. The power cord connects directly to the noise filter and then from the noise filter it goes to the main power control board. Make sure you have 110 volts going into and OUT of the noise filter. If you don't have 110 volts going out, then replace the noise filter. If you do have 110 volts coming out of the noise filter, replace the main control board. Below is a link to both parts.

Well, not an electrician or mechically inclined

You may need to have a technician fix this issue then if you're sure it's getting power. You can run an extension cord to an outlet you know is working to make sure it's getting power. If so, then one of those 2 parts would have to be replaced to fix the issue I'm sorry to say.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
