    I checked and change the condenser (round big piece) which is on the right side behind the control panel. I found that was the problem because when I tapped the condenser it would start and then when I would try later on to use the washer machine it didn't start again and I had to tap that piece. Finally I changed the condenser and now is working like new.

The selections are all made by the timer control. I would look to this. Before replacing it, make sure the harness is connected nice and tight in the back.

Removing front panel from kenmore elite HE-3 front load washer?

If you've removed the screws and the panel sticks, tapping on each side will knock it loose. The panel should drop down, then off. You can also try propping the two front feet of the washer up slightly for better access. A 2x4 works real well. This will allow more room for the panel to drop and gives better access to the screws. The washer is very heavy, so you may need some assistance to lift the front. Either lift from the bottom, or place your hands on the front facing of the cabinet to push the washer back. DO NOT push on the door or control panel.

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
