Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Washer won't start at all.

I stopped the Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load washing machine in the middle of a cycle and now can't get it to start at all now, in any of the cycles. I've tried to get it to run the spin/drain cycle, but not even that cycle will run.

    I did leave it unplugged overnight (for about 8 hours). Does it need to be unplugged longer than that? Seems like that would be long enough.

  • alott1940 Jun 14, 2009

    How long do you think it could possibly take? Up to 12 hours? Or longer? And do you feel confident this will work? Or is the technician usually needed to reset the computer on the washer? I just don't understand how stopping a washer in the middle of a cycle can have such a negative effect on it. I'll know not to stop it in the future.

    Can I check it again before the 24 hours are up? Or will that interfere with the resetting process? Or do you know definitely that it just needs 24 hours to reset?

  • alott1940 Jun 14, 2009

    And then when 24 hours are up, to check it, do I just plug in the power cord and try to turn it on and run a cycle? And by the way, do you know why the washer won't start again after being stopped in the middle of a cycle? This is so different from a top loader washer. My 20-year old top loader washer never had this problem.

    Leaving the washer unplugged for more than 24 hours did not work - it still won't start. Do you have any other suggestions?

    FYI - had to call a service technician. He took care of it.

    It need some long time to reset.

  • Mukesh Kumar Jun 14, 2009

    Turn it off for 24 hours.... that will fix that issue...
    It's not a repairing issue.

  • Mukesh Kumar Jun 14, 2009

    NO, do not check it before 24 hour......

  • Mukesh Kumar Jun 14, 2009

    Front loder washers are locked when you try to stop tham in the middle of cycle.
    The only way is - unplug tham for a long time, so it delete all the internal memory (work in queue).
