Kenmore Elite Model 110.42926 202 after setting the desired cycle will not start when you push the start button


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.



Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.



Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.



Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.



Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.



Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.



Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

My dryer won,t start. When you set the timer and turned the starter on you hear a sound that seems it will run but when you let go the starter it just won/t run


You have a bad motor. There should be a button you can press to make your dryer go while the door is open. Hold that and push the button in and then turn the drum. if that doesn't make it go then it is your motor

I have several Intermatic Model DT7.It very hard to set hours and minute. I press the buttons and nothing hapens and the just start to go up through the numbers and I can't stop it.


I'm not sure what timer you have.
Programmable timers are made so you press-and-hold the button, and then display goes up through the numbers as you describe.
I test timers, and have not seen the fault you describe. 4-6% of timers arrive defective.
However you have several timers that do the same thing.
If you press the button once, then the first number shows, press button again and next number shows.

If your timer is going up through the number with one push of the button then try resetting timer.
I cannot identify your timer to know what the reset steps are.

Also, many timers you push the + button to go up through the numbers, and push the - button to go down through the numbers > try both buttons since one may be made for individual selection and other for acceleration through all numbers.
If timer operates on 120V, perform circuit analyzer test on the circuit to eliminate electrical as source of problem.
If this is a hard-wire timer, carefully review of wiring.

If you find the specific source of problem, add a comment.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.
