Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Machine will not continue with cycle start button will not activate and cancel will not restart it machine time only blinks constantly.
Remove the lock switch by taking the metal spring ring off from around the tub gasket. Then pull the gasket out on the right side to reveal the switch. Remove screws above and below switch on right side. Unplug 3 leads and remove switch. Carefully pry up the 6 tabs on the switch while it is laying flat on a table... It's tricky but you will get it. Careful not to over pry the tabs or they will break. You will see some contact points. Make sure they are not touching. One set of mine were together as if they came out if their channel. Once they are separated snap the assembly together and reinstall the switch, gasket and spring ring. Make sure the spring is on the bottom. This fixed my issue and saved me a 80 dollar switch replacement. Not sure why this happened after 10 years of using it but it solved the problem.
