Will Not Start

  • Plug cord into live electrical outlet.
  • Check fuse or reset circuit breaker to outlet.
  • Close lid and push the START/PAUSE button to start

washer. The START/PAUSE LED should change from

flashing to on continuously.

  • Check to see if the washer is in a pause or soak

period of the cycle. Wait briefly for cycle to advance.

  • Check for restricted drain system.
  • Check the lid, lid latch mechanism, and circuitry. See
