Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting us to help you with this appliance question.

Can you give me a minute to look up this model number please.
Thanks Kay, Does the machine act like its completely dead or does the machine make any noise when you set it for a cycle?

This is a stacking washer and dryer, the dryer is functioning normally, there is no sound when I try to start the washer.

Thanks Kay, Sounds to me like the lid switch fuse has blown, This is located inside the control panel and is a fairly common cause to this problem, You should remove the control panel, locate the lid switch assembly, remove the fuse and test it with a ohm meter, If as I suspect the fuse reads open it will need to be replaced with a 3 amp replacement you can purchase at lowes or home depot.

Mike, I cannot make this repair myself, I will need to have this repaired. About how much should this repair cost me?


 


Thank you for your quick response, I have bookmarked you,

Not that much, if i were doing it I would charge around $90, it just depends on region.

Thanks Kay.

After doing some research, I discovered this stacking unit is 10 years old, about the age when breakdowns begin. I decided that this is a good time to replace these machines with a side by side pair. I was never completely happy with the stacking units anyway. I bought a basic model Kenmore set yesterday for $500.00, this is twice the amount I was going to be charged to fix the old machine. Thank you for all you assistance, I really appreciate everything.
