I started a load of laundry tonight, set the dial and pulled it out. Water started filling and I added detergent and clothes. I heard it still filling with water as I left the garage. I went back 45 minutes later to throw it in the dryer, and when I opened the lid of the washer, it was filled with water (and clothes). I looked at the dial and it was still at the starting point; it hadn't done anything other than fill with water. I checked the plug and then the circuit breaker and they were both fine. I tried rotating the dial to different parts of the cycle and nothing happened. No clicking, no filling, no draining, nothing. It's acting as though it was simply unplugged.
I am not familiar with this washer, and have never worked on it before, but I presume there's a fuse or circuit breaker inside. My problem is I have a terminal heart condition, and don't have much strength. It's hard enough to move that washer when it's empty, but I can't get it to budge now that it's full of water and clothes.
Does anybody have any suggestions? Is there a way of testing or resetting by opening the top? I don't even have any schematics for it, but I have to be at Cedars-Sinai hospital tomorrow by 2:30, and I need the clothes that are in the washing machine now.
