- Turn the washer on by setting the timer button on wash, and then pull out on the switch. If nothing happens, make sure the washer is plugged in.
- Turn the timer button to rinse. If nothing happens, make sure the lid is closed and the door switch is making contact; you should hear a click when the lid closes.
- Turn the dial to spin and pull out the start button. If nothing happens, make sure the load in the washer is distributed evenly. Reset the water level to high.
- Turn the timer dial to the delicate setting and pull out the start button. If nothing happens, reset the water level to low, and then try again.
- Unplug the washer and reset the timer dial to its off position. Check for power in the electrical wall outlet with a power meter. If there is power in the outlet, you will need to replace the timer.
