If the washing machine does not turn on, the first thing to do is inspect it. Often the problems are elementary.
Pay attention to:

– Whether the machine is plugged in
Users note that they often mistake the result of such inattention for a severe breakdown.

– Whether the power supply to the home has not been disconnected
Other appliances should be turned on to ensure that the power is still on.

– Is the outlet not out of order?
This may be why the washing machine won’t start. To ensure the outlet is functioning correctly, plug in another appliance and test it.

– Is the appliance’s cord pinched?
The cord can get caught in a doorway or under furniture and become trapped there. Unplug the cord.

If none of the above is confirmed, you need to diagnose the washing machine. Causes of failure may be as follows:

The washing machine does not start; all the indicators are lit simultaneously

The washing machine does not start, and all its indicators are flashing. In most cases, this indicates that the control board has failed. The leading cause of such a malfunction is voltage fluctuations. As a result of a sharp spike, the board’s capacitors can quickly burn out.

The washing machine does not turn on, and the indicators do not light

If the washer-dryer does not operate and none of the lights flashes, there are two possible causes:
1. The power cord from the mains is damaged.
2. The power cord plug is broken.

If both are not confirmed, the outlet is working correctly, and the power is coming to your apartment, we recommend calling Poway Appliance Repair Service Center to get your washing machine working like new again.

The washing machine does not start the washing, the hatch door does not lock

If such a situation has occurred with your machine, you need to inspect:
1. Whether the hinges on the door are not warped
2. The latch plate may be loose.

In addition to mechanical damage, electronic damage can also occur if you cannot hear the latch click sound and there is no water in the tank. In this case, you should rule out two possible faults:

– Breakdown of the hatch locking device
If the element does not work, the electronic module of the machine does not receive a signal from the lock, and the safety does not work. Washing, in this case, is not possible, and the hatch locking device needs to be replaced.

-Failure of the electronic module
The malfunction of this element is indicated by the absence of a burning indicator in the form of a lock. And the situation when the hatch door latches, but the washing program works.

If the electronic module fails, we recommend contacting a master, as you are unlikely to be able to fix the situation yourself.
