It appears your timer/main controller 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.

Did you try switching the power on whilst holding the start button only for at least ten seconds.if you can pull the machine out enough to tip it 45 degrees toward the rear so no water leaks when you open the penny trap to see if a button of coin has lodged in the drain pump.good luck.

It is hard to tell if there is no model number. Normally, WP machine has error code appeared on the display. I guess your unit does not have display, so the combination flashing is a signal to tell you what wrong with the system. You can check the service manual normally taps inside the unit.

Hello Anne, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the issue could be related to the door switch or control board. However, first let's try recalling the error code by waking the unit and wait approximately five seconds. Then press and hold CANCEL and START/PAUSE key at the same time. Error code should display. With the error code I can help you determine the possible failures.

If the washer does not display an error code, reset the washer. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes, turn the unit on and redo the steps above.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you!

My washer washes for about ten minutes stops lights start flashing and it resets to like its starting over again and shuts off how can i fix this


Hi shaen1257 - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly, faulty pump or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly or pressure switch. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? With this information I can advise you further on what the main issue could possibly be.

Started a new wash, started to fill with water then shut down. Now it sometimes turns on but shuts down after about 30 seconnds.


it sounds like there may be a problem with either the control board or the drain pump itself... is it giving you any fault codes at all... you may want to check drain pump on this unit which is located on the front side and requires removing lower panel of unit...check for any obstructions as if unit cannot drain or pump will shut down control assembly... if that looks good then the control board may be faulty unplug unit for a couple of minutes and plug back in sometimes this will reset controller.... repost if anymore questions one of us will be glad to help you out....

How do i reset my kenmore he 2 washer


Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Sounds like you have a stuck or shorted keypad. I've seen this a lot on this model. Solution is to replace the keypad. Catriver.
