Kenmore HE 4T Washer & HE 4 Dryer both lost power/life

2 posts in this topic

I have a Kenmore HE 4T Washer (110.45986 400)and a HE 4 dryer (110.85876400) which both went down at the same time, I think.  Both have been operating fine for many months until they both quit mid-cycle yesterday.  I initially suspected a blown circuit, but neither circuit was tripped.  Each appliance has it's own circuit installed in my home for these exact machines.    I reset both of them anyway and tested the outlets and both have power.  Neither the washer or dryer have any signs of life: nothing on the control board, no noises when plugging them in, etc.  Are there internal fuses which can be reset or any ideas?  Thanks!

Did you test for power or just voltage?  I have seen situations where I have voltage but, because of an open neutral, had no path for current flow and therefore no power.  An easy test is to plug a lamp into each outlet to see if it lights up.  Then you know you have both voltage and current.
