My Kenmore washer model 40272900 won't turn on at all. The outlet works, but nothing happens when I push the power button. No click or any other noise when I plug it in. We haven't had any trouble or error codes with it before. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

There's 120V leaving the noise filter and no light on inside the PCB that I could see. I took pictures of what I checked to make sure we're on the same page, but can't figure out how to upload them.
Noise filter = circuit board with copper coil on it First component the power passes through after leaving the outlet and connects to power cord. I checked the downstream side.
PCB = large circuit board in covered box at rear of washer. I'm a pilot, and don't claim to be a repairman. PCB for me means printed circuit board.

When unplug the washer and plug it back in, does the led light turn on the main pcb?
Sounds like you could have a bad main pcb. I will get you more voltages to check.

I didn't see any lights on the PCB after plugging it back in. Is the light easy to miss? I've got the cover off and looking on the circuit board itself.

Is the board getting power? The light is easy to see. Power to board trough the noise filter and no light means you need a new board.

It's hard to follow the wires through the bundle all the way to the PCB, but the exit plug of the noise filter is 120V hot when the machine is plugged in. When I take the cover off, I'm not seeing a bulb on LED on the PCB, that's why I was wondering if it'd be obvious.

Check the wires where they plug into the pcb. If you have 110 there and no light then you need a new board. Buy to one from the post above and if it's not the fix you can return it.

If you have a valid power supply to the main PCB but no output from it, then the main PCB is bad Part number: EBR62545101
I get 120V at the black relay on the PCB (1 yellow/1 black wire to relay plug). I also get 25V from the yellow relay next to it (1 red/1 blue wire to relay plug). In the picture above, they're the relays on the bottom of the board. Time for a new PCB? If so, any idea what would make it fail out of the blue?

Ordered. I appreciate the advice and will post a follow-up when it's swapped out.

Failure? Just your turn in the bucket. Happens all the time for no apparent reason. Let us know what happens with a follow up post.

No luck after replacing the board. FWIW, I don't see a light on this one either. I'm going to double check the power supply and see if that's it. I took pictures to make sure the relays were plugged into the correct spots, but there's one relay on the board that doesn't have a plug. It's a small blue one on the bottom.

I found the light, but it's not on.
The LED light comes on when the board is receiving a valid 120v AC power supply. The fact that the light on even the new board means that there's a problem with the power supply.
Did you check output from the filter board like I said in my previous post? Part number: 6201EC1006T

I checked it again this morning just to make sure. 125V coming out of the red relay, outside prongs. No light on the pcb.
