Is there a way to reset the machine?

The power is on but when you go to start a wash cycle, it just has a whirring sound and doesn't do anything. Is there a reset button or something?

Is this a good question?

To reset it unplug it for 5 minutes. Do you get any error codes? Is it filling or doing anything else that you can tell me?

It starts to fill up a little bit then stops. You can hear the door lock and the cycle sound like it's starting but then it just whirs and does nothing after. I've unplugged it several times but it doesnt cure the problem. No error codes show up.


If there's no water at all, make these checks:

Is there water getting to the machine?

Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?

The fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket may be blown?

Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
