Washing machine wont come on but i check the plugs and the push button are okey . you know any other parts that needs to be replace ? thank you.

If this is a kenmore front loader (boxy type made by frigidaire), the button must be
depressed for several seconds. The second problem with this model is the "coin
mechanism" cam must be in the correct position to operate the machine. If someone
puts in coins two times without starting, it can get out of sequence with the timer.
If you have a key, open coin box and move the metal arm back until the cam advances
to just before the big dip. (with the unit unplugged). The next cycle will allow the
arm to drop and engage the microswitches. If you don't have a key put coins in the
slide mechanism as though you were going to start the machine and
depress button until machine starts, this will reset the cam to the correct position.
Hard to explain but if you look at the coin mechanism, it will become obvious.
If you need a new mechanism it is called the "start mechanism" for front loaders.
Hope this helps.

By pass coin mech for a maytag washer mah21pddww

All you have to do is program the machine to run with no coins Open the service hatch and use the woolens key to scroll through to the setting which is your multiplier setting it may be set to 610 for example you need to set it to 600. While viewing this number use the permanent press keypad to change this setting each press changes it by one increment keep pressing it until it goes back around to 600 Then close your service hatch and the machine will be set to work for free you only have to select which program you want to start.
Hope this Helps

look on the control board. there's some DIP switches. these are set according to the number of coins needed to run the machine. the coin acceptor reads the number of coins going through it and advances the control board one increment for each "good" coin. objectionable coins are rejected.
