Nice to meet you, *****!
Could you tell me the model of the washer please?

Got it. Does your washer have a "Start/Pause" button?

Is your washer still turned on?

Customer Replay


So, is it working right now?

Customer Replay

yes. I paused it yesterday but I need to know how to restart it

Did you stop it using the "Start/Pause" button or did you turn the dial cycle to "0" or "OFF" position?

Customer Replay

i used the start/pause button

Then, you should be able to continue the cycle by pressing it again

Customer Replay

thats all I need to do?

If you stopped it using a button, that should be it

Customer Replay

does it take a few seconds for it to restart?

It may take a bit of time, as it needs to fill with a bit of water

Customer Replay

this is on the spin cycle

The "Start" button?

Customer Replay

no the pause/ start button

It really depends on the washer, but generally, it should be on the spin cycle

Customer Replay

It is and does it take a little time to restart the spin?

Yes, it may take some time to restart

Customer Replay
