    None of the lights work on the front of the dryer. It won't turn on, etc. The light on inside of the dryer works when you open the door but the panel doesn't light up. Originally they told me it was likely the fuse. The service guy came out and advised that this is a common problem with these dryers and it isn't the fuse. I have to replace the control board. Apparently the wires are very small and they are fused to the panel. They are always coming lose and not connecting. I have to replace the complete front panel that has the control board connected to it. This is going to cost $235.00 Canadian plus $60 labour. That's $300 to replace for something that is apparently a common problem.

    dryer will not turn on, none of the buttons on the front panel seem to respond. The light inside the dryer does turn on so I know it is getting electricity.

    I have the same problem and my dryer is only three years old and I am upset that a recall has not been done on this. I have been told that not only one but possibly both circuit boards can be bad ($500) and that it could take at least two weeks for the parts to come in. I wish the company would take the time and look further into this situation as there must be something they can do to correct this problem.

Dryer won't power on

First this, turn off breaker then back on. Next , check wiring from the plug to the back of the dryer. Next ,look under the top and locate a small half inch high disc that would be by itself. Remove the 2 wires nd tape together. This is only temporary.. If it runs, then just replace it and it will be fine. If not, you may have to get an electrician to look at it. However, I believe you will find your problem in the initial wiring.

Fuse popped in plug at socket. Tried new fuse - popped. Tested socket - it's fine. Tried on extension from other circuit - machine won't start.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this FixYa forum to guess remotely what is wrong with your washer ;-0(
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid, main motor, drain motor etc.

I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My washer sounds like it's dying, but the dryer is fine. Can this be unstacked so all I have to do is buy a new washer?


Welcome to FixYa.

To answer your question, as long as it is indeed a frontload washer with the dryer on top, yes they can be replaced individually.

The model number provided is only partial, therefore I can`t verify the unit is frontload or an Kenmore integrated "laundry center" built by frigidaire.

You can reply with a model number, but as I alluded to if it is frontload, no problem.

Good luck going forward. Thank`s for choosing FixYa. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Kenmore frontload works with no load but fails with clothes

Suspect the drum motor. Sounds like a burned winding in the motor which will open when hot and not work under any load.

Kenmore Oasis washer will not turn on

I have the same problem. I used the unit 2 days ago and no problems- just bragged about the unit yesterday and now today it will not turn on and it is no longer under warranty. I also checked to see if power to plug and it is fine. Any suggestions?
