Kenmore elite 79640272900

My washer won't turn on when I push power. The outlet is good. If I unplug the machine for thirty seconds and then plug it back in, immediately it powers on - I don't have to push the power button. Unplugging and replugging it in is the only way that I can use it? Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer...F02 and SUD not draining!!!!

Had same problem. Followed advice on post (i.e., remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter and voila!). Found one sock, a quarter, and some other junk clogging the drain. Saved $55 house service call. Thanks all!

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool duet

I have the same problem. I contacted Whirlpool,they said to call an electrician. Electrician said it was a MOTOR CONTROL BOARD. My price to fix in Fl. was $430.00, $400 for part and 30 labor. I had a coupon other wise it would have been right at $500. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: door locked, won't turn on. won't reset

Remove the bottom panel which would give you access to the pump area if you look up along the side that the door lock is on you will see a cord with a loop on it pull this cord and the door would open. The panel must be removed in order to locate this pull cord. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
p.s if after you open the door and you were to leave the unit unplugged for 7 minutes if the error did not go away or if the door once again locked up you would have no choice but to replace the door lock assembly on the unit Thanks again Rick

Kenmore front load model 40272900 e codes (control Error)


If the washer's full model number is 79640272900, then the unit was made by LG. Looking up LG front-load washing machine error codes will give the available codes. Here is one listing: http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/blog/2010/02/washing-machine-fault-codes/#LG . Some of these codes are also available in the manual in the Trouble-shooting section. Manage My Life has the manual as a PDF here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17952/KENMORE-Residential-Washers-L0910072?brand_name_search=79640272900 .

I hope this helps.

Kenmore elite 10654606300 won't turn on


Do you have power at the outlet? If you do, your breaker trip as soon as you plug the unit in? If you have power to the unit and your breaker is not tripping, inspect the wires from the power cord to make sure rodents have not chewed the wires. If everything else looks good then you have a bad cntrl board PART NUMBER: 2252116

Kenmore Elite Model 110.42926 202 after setting the desired cycle will not start when you push the start button


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.



Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.



Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.



Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.



Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.



Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.



Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Washer won't unlock flashes f14.....Kenmore Elite HE4t


F14 for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines means EEPROM Error.

The Central Control Unit (CCU) receives it's data from an EEPROM on board the CCU, if there is an error reading this data, it will cause this error.

A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging the Unit for two minutes to see if that fixes the error. Check CCU. So its likely you'll need a new CCU board.

Check your owners manual, some models have up to a 5 year parts warranty on that CCU.

Hello, Re: frontloading washer Model C45172 Our washer has been operating withiout hitch since purchase about five years ago, We love it. Today I tried to program it to do an extra rinse after wash...


For the Elite (HE) machines:

Press 'STOP' twice, press 'POWER', choose a wash cycle (such as 'NORMAL'), select wash options (water temp), press 'START' to finish the reset sequence.

Other Kemore electronic washers:

Unplug the machine for a minute, plug it in. Press 'PAUSE/CANCEL' twice.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

How to unlock controled lock


You can try a hard reset.

Turn the machine off if you can

Unplug it from the wall outlet
Leave it for about a minute
Plug it back in.

Always use caution when working around electricity and a washing machine

Are there any lights showing on your machine? What is the make and model of our washer?

The control lock lite is on my kenmore elite washer. How do I reset it, so that I can use the 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.
