Always start with the simplest thing, verify that the outlet is good before troubleshooting the machine. I cannot tell you how often the home electrical is the problem not the machine.

AC h1 is actually AC hi error which means input voltage is too high. Wait for sometime for voltage to stabilize Washing machine will automatically start. If not call electrician to check electrical fault for high voltage

Try this: Soak the stained clothes in a solution of 1 quart of warm water, 1 teaspoon of liquid dish detergent and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar for 15 minutes. Then, rinse with water.
If this doesn't get everything out, then wash in warm water (or what the fabrics allow) using a color safe bleach and detergent.

The problem is that there was more dirt than what your detergent could handle. If you have a really dirty clothes item in the future, get as much of the dirt off using a vacuum or by soaking alone as you can. Then wash the item in warm water with detergent and color safe bleach.

Solution: Hold down the power and delay start button at the same time. In about 3-4 seconds a beep will occur and the red key lock will turn off. I think it is a problem in the machines firmware. I just guessed at what combination of buttons the engineers used to do a firmware reset. In any case it worked for me.

Hello Ameliafaith,

E-Z job...

If you take your model on line... to SEARS
(I don't ordinarily recommend)... BECAUSE THEY COULD ACTUALLY ... decode your ABREVIATED part number...

110. blah blah blah... (45986??)

The other sites actually have helpful VIDEOS...
But I already wasted enough time on this floundering with your
erroneous number (wrong no.)...

You will see these parts are reasonably priced and
very popular.. meaning they INDEED FAIL ... alot.
