No panel lights!


Dead! Panel lights do not come on when turn knob. Stacked dryer works fine. Only washer won't start. Affinity frontloader.

Solution - MEASURE voltage in outlet with digital meter and if it is not ~115 V or very close do nothing - wait till it gets to norm.

Longer explanation:
I had similar problem today. Dryer fine, washer (front loader Affinity 6000) dead. Electric power there. Day before had no electricity for few hours. Turned out to be that this thing is sensitive to voltage. I have now from 101 to 103 volts and it needs something close to 115. I have almost disassembled it but it was hard to do and no manual on web (except to purchase for $15). So, after removing back paned and few screws from front I have turned my attention to my UPS I have for TV - it sometimes would blink with blue diode (means it is starting). I thought why... Then I have luminescent (energy saver) lamps around house and those are not sensitive to voltage so lights are fine. In bathroom however I have halogens and those seemed dim. This time I have looked at my tester again and noticed that it shows ~101.2 volts. So I am taking UPS from my TV and moving it to laundry, plug UPS to outlet, washer to UPS - washer still dead. I unplug UPS from outlet and washer comes alive...

Hope this helps.
