Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Moved Washer and Now no Electrical

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!

    Thank you for your help. I used a poor choice of word with hot, I meant that the electricity was running (I checked by plugging in a nightlight.) I hadn't thought to check if the machine plug was well connected or screwed in. I'm off to give it a shot! Thanks again.

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.

After moving dryer to new apartment, worked at first but now won't turn on


Did you check the power source? You could have popped a breaker (or fuse) if the dryer circuit in the new apartment is inadequate. Might have been good for one shot, then no more.

I hope that you can use the warrantee.

Otherwize, it must be possible to repair it with a fried comfortable with electronic because the problem is not permanent. This kind of problem is usually an old capacitor or a bad connection (soldering).
It would be important to check if changing the ambiant temperature fixes the problem. (I.E. move it to the seller for 2h and try..)

Sounds like you have low water pressure or a blocked hose inlet screen. take the hoses off and check to see if there is any debris in the screen on the washer hose connection. Make sure the hoses are not kinked and the valves are turned up all the way. Also check to see if you have those special flood proof hoses with the automatic water shut offs. I have had those not work properly many times.

I moved my TV from my old house to my new house. Before it worked just fine at my old house, brought it to my new house and it just doesn't turn on! Tried different outlets, wires, etc.


Check the power at the plug point. Check the plug of the TV. If there is no life, then you will need to open the TV panel and check for a blown fuse, a circuit break while transporting, a loose connector within the set or a possible damaged SMPS>

Sounds like a problem with your cable connection. Check your coaxial cable, and the splitter from where the cable enters your home. The tech will use a signal meter to measure the quality of your cable, and then replace the wiring if necessary.
