Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My (six year old) Kenmore Elite front loader suddenly stopped working. When I select the wash cycle I get a blinking red light and the cycle does not start when I press and hold start. I've tried unplugging the machine, depressing pause/cancel and/or start and nothing starts the cycle. HELP!!! School starts in two days!!! I have a similar problem in that in order to get the machine to start in any cycle I have to press and hold the top left corner of the Start button. I stumbled across that solution on my own. Try it, it may work, or it may be a different corner you have to press and hold.
The control panel (touch panel) is faulty - and must be replaced.
