If it is a top loading unit when you open the lid look along the back edge and there should be a button type switch that you can manually push down with your finger while the lid is open. While deprressing it turn on unit to see if it starts.If its a front load look where in the same spot along the edge where the hinges are for some type of button to press and repeat. It may also be where the latch catches and locks the door and you may have to insert something. While pressing the button with the door open try to start unit. If it starts immediately release the switch so water will not get you wet. If the unit starts with either test your switch would be ok. Check out this website will be invaluable to you if you want to repair your machine yourself.

Or simply type in your symptoms and search the forum and I will almost bet someone has already posted the same problem with your brand and and an answer will immediately be found.Good Luck and don't let appliances intimidate you they are VERY simply machines once you realize how they work and how simple they are constructed.
