Just put in my daughters washer, hooked up to water and plugged in:
the Washer will not respond to being turned on. It does not give any indication that it has power. All settings on the control panel seem to
be set correctly, but pulling out the knob to start a cycle does nothing.
How to take the front off the washer? What to look at?

The pump and its various hoses are easily accessable through the back panel. The boot can collect coins which can block the pump. Squeeze the boot and empty it of all coins. Coins can ruin the impellers on the pump. A new pump costs $100 on line. The drain hose can be plugged by dimes and pennies. Good luck.
Could you check and see if both the hot and cold hoses hooked to the back of the machine are actually putting out hot and cold water? If they are, it may be time to return the washer to where you bought it and get another. Be blessed.
1. unscrew 2 door screws and the 2 screws opposite to them on the other side (on right if you are facing the washer) 2. take door out by lifting it slightly and then pulling it out. 3. hold front panel from both sides and then push in and twist outward this willl diengage front panel from the hooks on side. 4. tilt front panel towards you about 40 deg. adn pull it up. 5. to take top out, first remove all 4 screws from soap dispenser and take the dispenser out (just pull up after unscrewing) 6. unscrew the electrical unit (where bulb is) in front top by taking out the 2 nuts Note: you must take out left most socket/coupler by pulling it before unscrewing the left nut that will give space for your wrench. 7. In the front corner the Top is bolted to side frame bars you will have to look under top corner and you will see 1 nut on each side, unscrew those nuts and the lift the top ( if you have enough space (about a foot) behind the washer the Top ca n actually go all the way back and rest on wall.) 8. from top view you will see a spring and metal wire system holding your boot, notice the spring position, spring has 2 hooks on each side, with needle nose pliers pull on the spring hook and have someone else disengage wire from spring hook. ( when it is time to put the wire back on the new boot just follow the same thing) 9. once wire is out take the boot out by pulling it from all directions. note: you may still have water in the washer system so before you take the boot out be ready with a bucket to catch it write under the boot plug. 10. your boot is still connected to washer withe the plug at the bottom. with help from needle plier press on clamp and pull plug out. note: if you see water flowing out from drain pipe (where the boot plug goes in try to keep it up to lwer the level of water that will stop the water flowing out (i took help from my 6 year old daughter for this job) now your old boot is out, trash it.:) 11. put the new boot the lip of drum and put the wire back on (again i enlisted my wife and my daughter to keep the wire in place, you cannot do it alone. with 3 of us putting wire was a breeze. put the spring back at the exact same place and with exact orientation. Note: when you start to put wire and new boot on washer drum lip make sure the tiny cuts/slots on the boot slip into the the notches on washer lip other you will have leak from these spaces. 12.now rest is all easy. attach the drain plug back on and then push the tabs of boot into the frontto secure it. 13. put all the thing that you took out in the same order all the way to door and you are ready to go NOTE: i did not front panel back on for couple of days to make sure there i no other leak and also to make sue that boot is not leaking.
The best for you is to contact KENMORE support section online or phone in your city and tell them your problem. Since you have recently purchased the machine, it is under warranty period. So they have to replace it or repair it free of cost. Also inform the local dealer from whom you purchased the machine. Keep the pressure on.
The breaker may have tripped as some model washers draw significantly more power than others. you should check the breaker and make sure its rated for your washer. I would also not suggest running your washer with out hooking it up to the water line as this can damage the pump.
Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!
this machine has the pump directly atached to the pump assy, so if the motor is runnning your pump will drain water. more likely is that when you put the unit back together perhaps you didnt plug the lid switch assembly bak in. if there is no lid switch detected the unit will not drain or spin and when it gets to that mode it will simply stall out. no noise or anything. will fill, agitate but not spin and/or drain/ check the lid switch!
There is a screen in the valve where the hose hooks on. It could be getting plugged up. turn off the water and pull off the hose to see if it's full of particles. I can sometimes clean it out by putting a bucket under the water inlet and spaying a little water from the hose into the opening. If not you may need a new valve.
