Using a repair guide or manual, a homeowner can quickly fix the problem their washer experiences. Power problems can be a result of damaged power cords, a damaged control board, a bad line filter or lack of power at the receptacle. Some of these issues require a minor fix or replacement to solve the power issue.

If the washer doesn't start the cycle, the reason can be the contacts are closed, the lid switch is broken, there are loose connections in the control board, or the switch panel has a problem. Check the power connection to ensure that there are no contacts, and open the lid to clear the problem.

A washer that doesn't shut off means that the lead has a problem, or the "stop" button on the switch pad has failed. Check the switch with the Calypso diagnostic mode and also solve the lid problem. Follow the instructions oin the repair manual carefully or seek expert help where necessary.
