Question about Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore front load washer, model 44072. For the past few weeks, the washer will not allow me to change the "CYCLES" setting. It is currently on the Heavy Duty setting and no matter what I try, I can not change the cycle setting the other selections; such as Normal, silk etc...
I tried everything I can including pulling the power cord and plugging it back in hopefully to re-set the control panel with still no success. I was able to change the cycle selection for the past two years....but now it will not allow me to change to any other selection. I have also noticed that the "TEMPS" selection is starting to do the same thing, but with a bit of patience, I can get it to switch to other selections. Thanks....Dan
I wonder if it's the control board that needs replacing ??? found a note on www.managemyhome.com saying...(part no 134207700 according to my parts list). Is there anything unique/special in replacing the control board... here are the instructions for it...if you try this, pelase let me know...
Replacing the control board is just a matter of removing wires from the old control board and installing them on the new one. It is an electronic board and can be damaged by static electricity so you have to touch some ground points with you hands before touching the control board.
To access the control board remove the top panel from the washer. There are 2 screws in the rear of the washer holding the top on.
With the top removed you will see three screws going down from the top holding the control panel to the cabinet of the washer; remove them.
Lift the control panel up and it will come loose. The control is mounted to the control panel with some screws.
