Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

Moved Washer and Now no Electrical

Washer was moved to new home and I tried to install tonight with new connections, etc. Won't turn on. Worked fine yesterday at old house. The electricity in my new (very old) house is fuse box quality. Tested the outlet and it is hot. Does the washer have to have a special outlet to work? I keep reading about 120 volt 60 hertz. Or was the thing broken in route? I have kids and I really need my washer and I really don't need another bill. Thanks!

    Thank you for your help. I used a poor choice of word with hot, I meant that the electricity was running (I checked by plugging in a nightlight.) I hadn't thought to check if the machine plug was well connected or screwed in. I'm off to give it a shot! Thanks again.

Suggestion: You dont need any special outlet. With a tester (you can get this in any electric shop) see if there is power in the outlet. You said it was hot?? It is not supposed to be hot. Try another outlet; & you could unscrew your machine plug to see if all the three wires are okay, ie. well connected, screwed in.

We moved our neptune dryer to our new cottage and it needed a new hookup. It worked for a while-but now it reads 88 and won't work. Is it the dryer or the electrical?

When the 88 displays, put a heating pad over the display - it will be ready in just a few minutes. Sounds crazy, but it works every time. May take up to 30 or 40 min.

Washer wont fill up, keeps draining

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

Kenwood KVT-847DVD radom reset problem

I solved this by changing where the power for the DSP unit was coming from the manual specifys to connect them to the same +12 connector for display and DSP and it worked fine in the Series 1 however for some reason in the series 2 the DSP unit draws too much power from the headunit +12 power connector and as soon as the unit fires bass in a song etc it drags it down to the point of the display shutting off, I change the +12 on the DSP unit to my 4GA +12 power cable through an adaptor block and it has worked fine since.
