Washer appears to have no power?

I did 4 loads of laundry without issue, i loaded the washer for the 5th load and realized the machine was dead, no lights, nothing. The outlet was working fine but the machine shows no signs of life. Any thoughts? Is there some sort of internal breaker that may tripped?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

My cycles will not light up for selection. When I press and hold the drain/spin button I do get a light after the 3 seconds of holding. I am at a loss why nothing else will light up. I have checked that the door shuts tight as well. Any thoughts?

Line Fuse

The line fuse blows if the washer circuits are overloaded. If the line fuse blows, the washer won’t start. To determine if the line fuse is at fault, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the fuse does not have continuity, replace it. In addition, you should investigate and resolve the problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for shorted out components such as the wires, motor, or drain pump. If you don’t resolve the underlying issue, the new fuse will blow too.

I can't seem to find the fuse, can you tell me where it's located? all the electronics seem to be on top but i don't see a fuse


Please give us your model number.,

There does don't seem to be a fuse for your model. Check the main breaker and reset it. That failing test the wall plug with a multimeter. If you have power we can look t other possible causes.
