Kenmore HE2 plus fron load washer will not turn on

Washer worked fine last week. This week it would not turn on, no lights on the panel, no noise, nothing....Checked the breaker box and outlet is getting power. Is there an internal reset button or fuse?

    I also have this problem. Mine seemed to start doing this in steps. First it worked to unplug the machine for awhile. Then when that no longer worked it helped to turn the dial while holding power button. If that didnt work, it helped to "jiggle" the door while holding the power button.

It appears your lid switch/door latch 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.

The washer works fine until it gets to the last rinse cycle. The rinse light blinks and the washer cuts off.


Will make a guess. Machines can stop on the last rinse because it is waiting for the fabric softener or because it is on a delay and leaves the clothes floating so they do not crease awaiting an action to say carry on.

The washer made a gringing noise on the last load and now the water didn't go into the drum but all over the floor.


Found a post online. A garment got lodged between the inner and outer drum blocking the fill port preventing the water from entering the machine - instead it came out the front of the machine at the detergent fill. Pulled out the garment and now works fine.

Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Washer knocks very loud on spin cycle and a belt or something has been coming out in pieces for the last few weeks


I just took the back off my older kenmore front loader and discovered that the concrete counter weight had come off the drum and fallen to the bottom of the machine. Reattached it and knocking has stopped, lucky it didn't trash the machine as it is normally attached to the top of the drum.
