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

When I plug MY washer into the outlet it sparks and it read ub and keep flashing on the panel


Check your outlet by plugging something that works properly into the outlet. If it works right, then the problem is a short in your washer. If it still sparks when you plug something in, there is a problem with the outlet itself. Get a qualified person to check out and /or the outlet.

LG washer #WM2655HVA won't start again after a cycle, unless unplugged, hand-turn drum, makes a beep, static spark as plugged back in, then a new cycle begins. Why?


Have you checked the wall power outlet for proper ground and
polarity? Try using another outlet near by using a "heavy duty"
3 prong extension cord. If problem persist chances are the Main
PCB is bad.

Thers no power to my washing machine.changed the fuse and theresstill no power.what do i do ? thank you emma


Hi emma... Unplug the machine from it's current outlet and use a heavy duty extension cord to plug it into another outlet that you know works [plug a blow dryer in to check it].

If the washing machine works then you know the problem is in the outlet or the wiring to the outlet. IF the washing machine still doesn't work you know the problem is within the washing machine itself. Possibly the lid switch or a fuse within the machine. J.

Kenmore Elite OASIS 27082 do not power up


The motherboard (controller) has died.
You will have to replace the motherboard.
This motherboard is the cause of the dreaded F1 error codes as well.
Look at some of the other posts here for F1 errors.

Wnat to convert a uk washing machine and dryer to use in usa . there is a 220 outlet of course but where do i get a 2 outlet plug for the machines that will then plug into the usa dryer 220 outlet.


there is a possibility that your machines may not work properly in the usa as they generate electricity at a different frequency than uk 60 hertz usa 50 hertz uk also most of the equipment in the usa is 120 volts not 230

Kenmore top loading washing machine


check the outlet to make sure that power is getting to the unit. This can easily be done by plugging in a lamp or some small appliance. If you have power at the outlet, it is most likely the lid switch.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. Unless you are familiar with working inside the housing I would call a technician.
