Customer Question
The washer is loaded...

The washer is loaded, the he detergent is in but it won't come on!

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

The door locked light is flashing....what to do next, I have tried pressing the control lock, it still flashes.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It is a May Tag Maxima direct drive, we bought it Spring/Summer of 2015

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

We live on an island which means to get a repair man out is prohibitively expensive, so I need a quick fix please!

Fixed it myself by flipping the fuse and then turning it on again. It is working fine now.
Please may I have the $5 back?
Thought it was an electronics problem.
Thank you anyway!��
