Washer won't start

All of the lights come on but when the start button is pushed nothing happens. I am looking for a do-it-yourself way to repair this machine.

    If this solution is for the top loading kenmore 44722, then i wonder how to access the control panel. I don't hear a click when i close the door which indicates a switch issue of some sort. Any suggestions? much appreciated.

Open the control panel and check the door switch, mostly it's loose. You should hear click sound when the door is close if the switch is in working condition. Otherwise bend the contact metal a bit until it makes contact. Hope this helps.

Lights come on but nothing happens when I hit the start button?


Hi just read your posting.Now just a couple of questions.When you push the start button does it make a beep noise?Do the other buttons work?Have you tried advancing the cycle to spin and pushing the start button?This problem could be a faulty display board or faulty lid switch,or water valves.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.Does your machine have a lid lock light and an Efficiency option button.Looking forward to your reply.

Panel lights are on. push on button nothing happens


I have experienced the same thing a number of times. To solve, open the door, then turn the knob, and push the start button on and off, and push the delayed start button (3, 6, 12 hour). Then close the door, and retry. This routine seems to reset the system.

Can't get washer to start again after pushing pause/cancel button


sounds like central control unit problem, you can check for diagnostic mode operation by setting (door closed) drain/spin, no spin, pressing prewash 4 times in 5 secs pressing prewash again will advance through diagnostic cycle. replacing user interface may also be necessary
