Re: Kenmore Elite won't start
First of all, make sure haven't inadvertently locked your control panel. Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds to see if it clears. How long did you unplug the washer for? The manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. Try this first and let me know what you have. It could be you only have a minor glitch.
If these preliminary checks prove unsuccessful, you may have a control panel problem. Do you have any error codes deisplayed? Please reply and let me know what you have.

This seems to be a problem in the start switch diode. If all works fine, but will not push and start and all cycles seem to work when working it manually, this is in the switch timer electronic diode is not working properly. Sometimes a code will not come up, because cycles are still working when manually changing wash cycles. There is seperate switch or electronic trigger that starts the machine, and has probably worn out or not making good contact. If you can unplug machine and then take off panel, trying spraying behind start switch with electronic cleaner to free up any possible dust or dirt. Might get lucky.
The first thing i would check is your boot around the door for a rip or tear. Also check the drain line for any types of leaks. You can also remove the bottom panel there will be three torx screws and you can look at your drain pump while in spin and drain cycle to see of the leak located in that area.
Drive motor failure, CCU or Motor control failure. To ceck this look at your owners manual and from then test the parts with a multi meter. To keep from spending money you can unplug your machine for 15 to 30 minutes, plug it back in and sometimes that will clear the code and everything will work just fine. Also some parts are covered under the 5 year warranty so make sure about that also
If you take the front off in the lower right you will find a pump motor that controls the drain flow. This may defective. Use a shop vac to empty the water in washer if needs be. But remove and test this pump.
