My 2011 Kenmore front loading washer (model #49032) will not power on. There is power to the outlet. It was purchased two days ago. It washed three loads of clothes and then stopped working. No power, no lights, no response. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

An LG-built washer (model number can be found when opening the door).

Possibly a failed MAIN BOARD and/or ELECTRICAL NOISE FILTER.

Usually caused by power outage/surge.

Other possibillity (though unlikely)---loose plug connection at the MAIN BOARD.

If the washer is less than 1 year old---covered under warranty.

Contact Sears for an authorized servicer---but do NOT divulge any information or mention of power outages/spikes/etc (if any occurred).

NOTE: If your home is "off-grid"---may need a LINE CONDITIONER to prevent Main Board damage.

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Thank you. There was no power surge I was aware of, and no other appliance indicates this. However, if there was a surge, or something else, how do I test to see if the main board is faulty/damaged?

Also, the model number is 4903, not 49032.

Many thanks.

Still not a correct model number. Read this page before your next post ==> http://fixitnow.com/...-model-numbers/

You are correct. The correct model number is 402-4903. However, the full model number on the back of the machine is 402-49032012. It is tricky for a newbie to interpret the actual model number from the printed model number from the model number on the receipt. I need a model number decoder ring.

Ten Commandments for reading model numbers


If you read the commandments, you will know not to look at any papers for the model number - the one that you fetched from the back of the machine sounds right - seems to come up as a Samsung built machine

. It was purchased two days ago.


I would be calling for Warranty repair

The problem with your washer could be similar to the one I encountered on this recent service call ==> http://appliantology...marts-mountain/

... model number on the back of the machine is 402-49032012.
... I need a model number decoder ring.

1) 402 = Kenmore built by Samsung
2) Model Number Decoder Ring

Sears in Canada has had Samsung building their Kenmores for a couple of years now, also many LG models up until awhile ago

Hmmm---that's interesting.

I read a business news article some time ago---maybe 2 years ago---that Sears & LG had signed an agreement to sell LG appliances under/with the Kenmore label.

Apparently things are so fluid/chaotic at Kmart/Sears that this agreement may have been altered.

A rumor is circulating that LG may be expressing an interest in purchasing the Kenmore brand.

A snippet from another article...

<<<Another expert, Jack Hendler, president of Net Worth Solutions, said he believes “it will be necessary” for Sears to sell its most valuable brands — Kenmore, Craftsman, DieHard and Lands‚ End — after many years of speculation about such a move. Sears Holdings has already started licensing certain items from the DieHard and Craftsman lines to rivals‚ stores.
“Each of the brands has value unto itself,” Hendler said.
Hendler speculated that South Korean appliance companies, notably LG Electronics, “would hit a home run” with a Kenmore acquisition.>>>
