Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Washer was moved to new home and I tried to install tonight with new connections, etc. Won't turn on. Worked fine yesterday at old house. The electricity in my new (very old) house is fuse box quality. Tested the outlet and it is hot. Does the washer have to have a special outlet to work? I keep reading about 120 volt 60 hertz. Or was the thing broken in route? I have kids and I really need my washer and I really don't need another bill. Thanks!
Suggestion: You dont need any special outlet. With a tester (you can get this in any electric shop) see if there is power in the outlet. You said it was hot?? It is not supposed to be hot. Try another outlet; & you could unscrew your machine plug to see if all the three wires are okay, ie. well connected, screwed in.
