Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
There is no power to the washer. When I unplug then plug it back in, there is a small spark at the outlet, a flash of the control lights and a beep, then again no power. This happened out of the blue, there was no event that seemed to cause it. Does anyone have a clue how I can fix this? The washer is 2.5 years old and has been operating perfectly since I got it. It is not on an extended warranty.
Heres what i think is the issue. sounds as if you have something lodged in hte pump assembly. to correct this unplug the unit, and while standing in front of unit leant in over to the left side. scoop out as much wateras possible.the bottom ofthe unit is open and youll findthe drain pump in the back bottom of right side of tub.after removing as much water as possible, remove the pump hose from the tub and the pump will release with (3) 5/16" screws. almost sure that you will find something in that pump!!!

Make sure that the outlet is working even though the breaker is okay. Plug a small lamp or appliance into the washer outlet to verify that it is working.
If the outlet apparently has power the plug the washer back in and listen carefully for a click from the CCU (Central Control Unit or main control board shown in the first image below). If you do not hear a click then I recommend that you unplug the washer and remove the top panel (shown in the first image below). Check the wiring harness connections on the control board. I provided a wiring diagram in the second image that shows the path of power to the CCU. If you have a volt/ohm meter and the technical expertise, you can check the continuity of the power supply to the control board (wires traced in red and green on wiring diagram below). If the CCU is apparently getting power but does not click shortly after it is plugged in then it will need to be replaced.
You could also have a failed user interface touchpad assembly that would prevent the washer from powering up.
These tips may help you determine the cause of this washer failure.
