Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore front load washer

I shut the electric power off to install track lighting & was doing a load of wash when I shut it off. When I turned the electricity back on, I could not open the door. I've tried to wash the load over again but when I hit Start it beeps 3 times & nothing happens. I've tried turning the electric off for 10 mins. but no change. I've pushed every button & nothing happens. The washer is just out of warrenty(the first 6 months it sat in a box while the house was renovated). I've called Sears & they say get a repairman. I've very disappointed with their service.

If that machine was so easily damaged (the electronics in particular) it is a sorry design.  About the only thing I would suggest is to actually pull the AC plug and ignore it over night.  Whatever safety 'feature' caused the door to lock, may reset itself if given enough time.
And yes, Sears service is not as wonderful as they claim.

My Kenmore top loading washing machine is leaking from the bottom. The water is dripping from the bottom of the front panel. What needs to be fixed and how do I do it?


This symptom usually indicates that you have a failed inlet solenoid water valve assembly. Completely unplug the washer from the electrical supply and see if the water stops filling. If it does, then you likely have a control board failure. This is rare but possible. If the water continues to fill with the washer unplugged from electricity, I recommend shutting off the hot and cold water supply faucets behind the washer. It is likely that the water will stop filling the washer. This would indicate that you have a failed water valve assembly.
