Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The only way to "reset" the machine is by unplugging it for an hour or so and the preprogrammed cycles can never be reprogrammed. The problem here is likely with the User Interface (UI) board itself. But a problem in the Motor Control Unit (MCU) can interfere with the communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the UI. Disconnect power then remove the top panel to access the CCU and disconnect the harnesses from terminals MI3 and MS2. These harnesses are for MCU communication and power respectively.
Reconnect power then run the machine with each of the cycles. Replace the MCU if the problem doesn't appear with the MCU disconnected. Replace the UI if the problem still exists.

Thanks for using FixYa. To reset the controls press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 10-15 seconds, after doing this if the issue is still not resolved then the electronic control should be replaced. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
