Check the power supply to ensure availability of electricity. If your laundry room or utility area has a separate circuit breaker, or fuse, then you must check that to find out if it is tripped, or blown. If power is available and there is no major dip in voltage, then you should check the thermal fuse or circuit breaker in the washer itself. It could be blown or tripped. Restoring this should get your washer to run. However, if none of these is the real issue, then you have to investigate further and for that you would need certain tools.
Availability of power is essential for a washer to run, but so is the entire circuit. The whole circuitry of the washer must be complete when you close the door or lid, and the latch makes the click sound to indicate there is a firm fit and lock. If any phase of the circuitry is broken or malfunctioning, then your washer won’t run. It could be the touch sensor, or switch and knob in older models. It could be the control panel for the user. It could be the central control board, which is the hub of the entire circuit.
Circuitry issues are complicated. Most require an expert to inspect and detect the actual problem. Circuitry issues may call for replacement of the broken or malfunctioning part. For instance, the sensor has to be replaced if it is broken. A defective control panel may need to be replaced. Distinct phases have separate components. Those broken or failing could be repaired or replaced depending on the condition. Our technicians can carry out washer repair onsite and on the same day in Ottawa.
A washer won’t run if there is no power, during massive voltage fluctuation, with a broken sensor or disrupted circuit. While it is easy to figure out if the fuse is blown, lid switch is working or not, sensor is unresponsive and if the control panel is not functioning, a thorough inspection is necessary to find out if the motor has failed, if the pump is broken, if the drive belt has come apart, if the drum is not operational, and if the relay is malfunctioning.
