If you suddenly find that your cloth washing machine is not working, do not panic. This problem may be related to the problem in the power source or the lid switch. If you follow the steps given below, we believe that you will be able to resolve your cloth washer problem with little to no money.

  1. 1 Repair it free: Find if you have warranty for your washing machine. If you bought your cloth washer within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your washing machine fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identity and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2 Power Source: Check if the wall power electric outlet where you connect the power cord of your appliance is working or not. You can find detailed instructions how to check the power source in the article titled How to Test an Electric Outlet. If the power source is good, then you definitely have issues with your appliance and you need to identify it.
  3. 3Check if the washer power cord is damaged. Repair the power cord if it is damaged.
  4. 4 You have made sure that your appliance is getting power by following the steps above; however, it is not working. In this case one or more of the major components may not be functioning.
  5. 5 Lid Switch: In order for the washer to work properly, the lid switch must work. The lid switch is inside the washing machine near the door. In most washers, you will have to open the frame that holds the door to reach the lid switch. Refer to the User Guide to locate the lid switch. Check the switch and replace it if it is defective. In some washing machines, there is a fuse for the switch (normally located in the control panel). If the fuse is burned, replace it. Now, check if your cloth washer is working or not. If it does not work, call an experienced appliance repair technician.
