I suspect there may be an issue with the electronic controller in the machine if it stopped after an electrical storm. Unplug for a couple hours. Does the behavior change at all when plugged back in?

My order ID 16159849-753. After the storm, the washing machine would trip the house circuit breaker when it reached the spin cycle. After drying out the machine (laundry leaked water through the roof during the storm) and repeating the process, I heard a phzzt, then it wouldnt trip the circuit breaker but it also wouldnt spin. I still use it to wash my clothes but hang them up over the bath to drip dry.

If the deposit is $18, why was I billed $37 ?

I don't have any access to any account information. The question value is set by you at the start of the process. Did you select a higher value maybe? You can contact the admin folks at***@******.*** to see about your account.
