Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
We checked and it's not the breaker or the cord. We reseated cables and no change. We bought it new about 9 months ago and have not had any problelms until now.

Actually I didn't need a solution. The unit would not start. It was like no power was coming in. The outlet was good and usually if there is a power failute the unit flashes PF. Well I walked by in a couple hours later and and touched the start button and it worked. Got two loads of wash in. It must
have a loose connection or a dirty connector, but I'll wait until it happens again

Unplug the unit and let it sit unplugged for 30 minutes. There is a power filter on the AC input line and sometimes power surges can cause it to need to bleed off the voltage from capacitors. There is a test procedure to see if the filter needs to be replaced but so far every time this has happened to our Calpyso, we pull the plug for a bit and the washer recovers.
There isn't enough space on this text box to post the removal & replacement procedure for the line filter, but you can find it at www.pcappliancerepair.com and look up the part # on the Sears Parts Direct site for your model # specifically.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
