Washing Machine Won't Start

The test light shows that the outlet is working. But, when I plug in the washing machine it won't run.

Use an extension cord and try another outlet. If your washer still fails to work, it's time to call in someone to repair it.

Have you tried changing the fuse in the plug?

Sounds like your motor needs replacing. If you have the top loader that is not computerized, and have easy access to the back of the washer, you can change out the parts yourself. A washer is simple in all their repairs, as long as they are not digital, computerized, etc. My last washer was 25 years old when a rusty tub made it necessary to buy new.
