Kenmore Elite HE3 appears dead

5 posts in this topic

Relatively new Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washer just stopped working.

Ran fine last week, this week appears completely dead.

No lights, no LEDs/indiciators.  Outlet appears to work OK.

Door seems to latch OK as well.

Any ideas where to check first

Thanks

What does this mean?  Have you measured the voltage at the outlet with a meter?  If not, then that's your first assignment.

My humble apologies, master.

You ask a good question.

I am trying also to troubleshoot from afar through my wife at home, and rushing to try to avoid a theatened appliance repairman visit.

I will try to get more precise information and send another post.

Your title is warranted. 

You were correct to suspect the circuit.  With a meter, we were able to dentify a problem with the circuit and correct it.  (A ground fault had blown in a thunderstorm we think; the earlier info on the circuit was in error.)   Things appear OK now, so far.

Thanks for the help.
