Washing Machine Not Working After Power Outage


I have a Frigidaire stackable washer/dryer(model FFLG2022MW). Yesterday it was running and we had a short power outage. When the powere came back it ran for a few minutes and then stopped. The dryer still works perfectly fine.

I keep reading about resetting the washer or motor after a power outage but can't find anything specific to this model. The most common suggestion says to unplug for a few minutes then open and close the lid 6 times. My problem is the lid is stuck in the locked position.

Any ideas on resetting this model?

If you can't easily reach the plug turn off the breaker. Then turn it back on after a minute.

Thanks PoleCat. I've already unplugged and also turned the breaker off and on. There is definitely power going to it as the dryer runs. They are a stacked unit with the same plug. I've read about different internal reset mechanisms but can't find anything for this model.

The only reset is removing power that I could see in the manual.

if killing power doesnt fix then it will be suspect that the outage caused failure of a control board. many machines today have fault code readout, but if you cant get that either then you will need your control board(s) checked by someone who can check them and/or replace the controls.

i always recommend a power surge wall-wart for electronic based items, doesnt always save the item, but helps.

you could buy new controls via online parts place, try it to see if it fixes problem, if not then return the parts, etc.

or, spend that $75 for a tech to come out to press the buttons and what-not just to tell you "yep, not working, you need new controls".
