Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Hello Murray Munger, thank you for your post!
I see that you are having difficulty with your Frigidaire washer stopping mid cycle and possibly not starting back up. From what you have described it sounds like a faulty control panel or wiring harness. You may want to have a technician come out and diagnosis your washer because he will have the appropriate tools to check and assure that the voltage going into each component is correct and if needed be exchange the faulty part. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
