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.

Our kenmore elite quiet pack 2 front load washer appears to have no power at all. No lights, no codes, nothing. Worked as expect just 2 days prior. No brakers have been tripped on the electric panel...


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.

Washing machine will not turn on it shut off


Have you tried unplugging the unit and waiting for a minute and then plug it back in. The load might have been off balance and caused that condition. Once it has been reset you might be able top end the cycle.
