The technique can not start the washing program or even does not turn on completely for several reasons. Timely identification of them will allow you to extend the life of operation for several more years and save money on this.
No. 1 – lack of power in the network
In the case where the display does not light up when the power plug is plugged into the outlet, and in products with a mechanical type of control the device does not start at all, then perhaps the current is not coming in.
Therefore, there may have been a power failure or the unit has tripped due to poor power quality. If this is the reason for the lack of power, then you need to check its functionality and if there are related problems with the switchboard.
In the other case, the failure to start the appliances occurs when the outlet is broken.
No. 2 – failure of the elements of the power cord
The wire of the product is constantly exposed to various deformations – bends, pinches, tension, and breaks. Therefore, the possibility of its damage in the process of operation is not excluded.
To determine this type of breakage it is necessary to visually inspect the cord, as well as the plug. There may be traces of burning or melting plastic on the devices, the corresponding unpleasant smell.
To check whether there are breaks in the wire, you can also use a multimeter. Connect in this case, the device will need to be connected to all three wires in turn. If breakage is detected, it is advisable to replace the cable, and not to connect the elements with duct tape.
#3 – Problems with the “On” button
The washer may not start due to problems with the “Start” button. Such a problem is most often found in the newer generation models of devices. The principle of operation of such products is the direct supply of current from the main cord to the button.
To check whether the part is faulty or not, it is necessary to perform the following series of actions:
– disconnect the device from the power supply;
– Remove the upper part of the product case;
– unscrew and remove the control panel, on which the button is located;
– disconnect the wire connections from the button;
– connect a multimeter to them and check the presence of current when the button is on.
If the button is working, the device will give a corresponding sound. If the problem is detected, the part should be replaced.
№4 – breakage of electronic module or programmer
Check the serviceability of these parts is made only after checking the correctness of connection of all electrical circuits, the integrity of wires, plugs, and the device that performs the locking of the hatch.
These units of the unit are quite expensive, so the feasibility of their replacement should be decided independently on a case-by-case basis.
To identify a breakdown, the commando unit must be disassembled. Their devices differ depending on the model and brand of the machine. The general order of disassembly is the same, but the appearance of the part may be different.
No. 5 – the locking system does not work
If the equipment is turned on and the power indicator lights up and there is no start of the washing program, you should check the serviceability of such an element as the locking of the hatch.
As a rule, the machine locks the door when starting any program. If this does not happen, then you need to pay attention to this node.
No. 6 – interference filter malfunction
In the device of each model, there is a special element, which is responsible for the damping of electromagnetic radiation during operation – the interference filter.
The detail allows you to protect other equipment from electric waves that can disable it. If this node is broken, the machine will not turn on, and the indicators will not light up.
No. 7 – damage to the internal wiring
Most devices have an internal structure in which the wires are in contact with each other and when vibration can cross, twist, fall out of the sockets of electrical circuits and break off.
Complete disassembly of the unit is necessary to locate the breakage or burnout area. Careful examination of the wiring and circuits, as well as the use of a tester, will help identify the problem areas. The damaged areas will need to be replaced or soldered at a later date.
