Will the power cord on my Kenmore Washer 80series work on a Frigidaire front loader

If you are referring to the 3 pronged 110volt black electric cord, the answer is yes. If you mean an extension cord, the answer is yes if it is heavy duty. ( 15 Amp.)
Be sure to hook it up correctly, with the hot wire going to the correct connection inside the machine.
God bless your efforts.

Diagram for installing 4 prong dryer cord on Frigidaire crown dryer

4 wire dryer cords usually have 4 colors to hook up. The dryer will have 3 screws usually in a straight row. White goes to the center screw. Red and Black can go to the 2 side screws on either side of the white. Doesn't matter which side or which color just so red is on 1 side and black on the other side. The 4th wire should be green. It is a secondary ground and can go to any screw in the dryer body. If you see a green screw near the terminal block use that for the green wire.

Hello byseltrd03 - Try resetting the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the dryer back on. Check that the power cord is not damaged. Otherwise the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or defective door switch. Should all troubleshooting measures fail, I strongly recommend contacting a local professional for further diagnosis. You can often locate qualified servicers by visiting the manufacturer directly.

Electrical wiring

The green is the safety ground, it goes to a contact that is directly connected to the body of the dryer. A dryer cord is usually a flat thing with the wires that have lugs crimped on them. Usually the power wires are black, and the neutral wire is white. It's usually difficult to put it on wrong, so if it goes easy, it's probably right.
