Question about Kenmore Energy Star 44092 Front Load Washer
Yesterday I moved my Kenmore 44092 washer out from the wall to retrieve something that fell behind it. I had to tip the machine slightly to get it to move and after I got it back in place it wouldn't work. When I sewlect a cycle the time shows up in the window and shortly thereafter a LOC message. The display continues to alternate between the time and the LOC message. When I push start, or any other button, an Err message shows and there are three beeps. ANy suggestions before I have to pay big bucks for home service? Thanks. (Oh for the simple days of mechanical timers.)
Telescope, Im assuming your model starts with 417.44092, Kenmore made by Frigidaire. You have the best model with the digital display. Try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes to see if you can reset the board. If that doesn't work put it into a test mode by doing the following: Turn the dial to drain spin, press cancel to turn off the led's. Within 5 seconds press and hold the options and pause/cancel together for 5 seconds. All the led's should light. Now by turning the dial 1 click at a time clockwise you are going to test the following. 1rst click- hot water solenoid 2. bleach solenoid 3. Bleach and wash water solenoid 4. door lock solenoid activates 5. door lock solenoid de-activates. 6. the washer will fill and tumbe. 7. washer will fill and spin 8. drain pump and door lock will activate and washer will go in high spin. 9 clicks from the start, the last error code will be displayed. To clear the error, press and hold the options and cancel buttons for 3 seconds. To exit the test, just unplug the washer for 5 seconds. Sometimes these electronic boards just get a glitch and have to be reset. Make sure that the dispensor door is shut all the way. Try these things first...Catriver..post back.
