Electrical Supply Needed for a Washer

Electrical Supply Requirements for your Whirlpool Washer

Is the washer connected correctly to the power source?

Plug power cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet.  Do not use an extension cord.

Check to see if a household circuit breaker or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet has tripped. If so, reset the circuit breaker or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. If the washer is on a fuse box, check to see if a fuse has blown and replace it, if necessary. If the problem continues to occur, call an electrician.
