Customer Question
My front load washer...

My front load washer won't stay on. There is no error message. It's definitely not overloaded. Help!?

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

It's one year old this month. Where would I find make/model info?

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

What work??

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

When you say it will not stay on does the unit shut down and power off or what happens?
