If the washer won't start then you could have a bad lid switch or actuator motor not shifting properly. The reality is that the only way to possibly fix the problem without replacing any parts is to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work, then you have a faulty part and the unit isn't even a year old so you'll want to call warranty and they will repair the unit at no charge. Their number is *****
