Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Washer cycle lights flash and washer will not start. Whats it mean?
Unplug your machine, remove the top panel, doublecheck all of the wires are securely connected. Sometimes the wires are loosened due to the vibration of the washer. Hope this works for you! It worked for our Kenmore Elite H3 when no cycles would start and flashed the error code "dL/F" (door lock failure).

How do you remove the panel?

Also remove the bottom panel (3 torx screws) and unscrew the round drain plug in the very center...be prepared with towels to catch water...(unplug first of course) you may find coins, pens, etc trapped in the screen we did preventing drainage...also shine a flashlight further into the drain to inspect for baby socks etc...lol

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
