If the washer won't even power on and you're sure you're getting power to the washer from your house then your main power supply control board in the back right corner inside the control panel has failed and needs to be replaced. The part is about $200 and there are no fuses so it would need to be replaced to resolve the issue

Ok. How do I test it
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 2 months ago.

You can't test the board. You just test power from the power cord to make sure your washer is getting power from your house. You can plug the power cord into an outlet you know is working and if the washer won't turn on the control board needs to be replaced, it's that simple.
