Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore HE2 Plus front loading washing machine that is about 2 1/2 years old. It just started turning on and then off again, all by itself. Last night we ended up jut unplugging it. And when I plugged it back in today and tried to wash a load of clothes, it turned off in the middle of the wash cycle, and then turned back on. It seems to be stuck in that cycle of turning on and off, so we have it unplugged currently. Any ideas of what this might be? Should we call for repair or is this something we can fix ourselves?

Check the drain plug at the bottom of the washer by removing the bottom panel. Most likely this is your culprit and you will need to drain it.

Most likely it is the timer/control board.
It is a plug and play swap-out, but the tricky part is getting TO the board :D
Only you can determine if you have the skillset to attempt the repair - however without properly testing the components - you may just end up throwing $$ at the machine replacing good parts and still not find the problem.
This type of repair is best left to experienced repairmen. You will SAVE money in the long run.
