  1. Identify your washer type.  The Power / Cancel button may differ with different models.  This was my model tag.

    • On my unit the model number tag was found by opening the washing machine door.

    • ** WARNING ** - UNPLUG POWER PRIOR TO WORKING. YOU WORK AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY!

    • Apparently the stuck button was actually caused by the chrome housing/ring being pressed in too far at the bottom or otherwise misaligned. This was not a problem with the actuator itself as I first thought.

  3. The simple fix here was to take a metal pick (or other thin but firm tool) and carefully get under the chrome housing (ring) at the bottom and wedge it up or slightly forward.

    • To my surprise there was a slight click/pop that indicated the housing ring was released.

    • Plug the washing machine back into the power source and lightly touch the Power / Cancel button actuator.

    • My advice to avoid this in the future is to more carefully "touch" the center of the gray actuator with minimal force rather then "mash" the whole button during use.

Hello I have a GE front loader and my power went out before it was done it had a minute to go and now it does not want to start back up what do I do and I thought I would unplugged it for a hour thinking it would reset it self but that didn't work

There are some things which can cause this - online they talk about a stuck water valve or a door switch problem. Make sure to completely restart a cycle. There is also a reset process where you unplug the power cord and then hold down the power button for at least 5 seconds after plugging the power cord back in.
