Question and Answers

Q:

my washer won't start - light in drum is on but nothing else works

A:

I see that Marc posted a link for a previous answer that provides some troubleshooting for a similar problem on the same model of washer. I recommend that you use the information in that answer to check the components in your washer.

If you need parts, you can order them from this page: Kenmore Washer Model 796.42198900 Parts .

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Q:

i have a kenmore elite front load washer model # 79642198900 and the washer turns on but it will not select a cycle, the light just flickers, what should i do?

A:

Your symptoms indicate that the Child Lock may be enabled on that console. I provided a procedure for disabling that Child Lock feature in the image below. Try to use that function to disable the control lock and see if you can use the controls normally.

Here is a copy of the full owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual .

If that does not work, I recommend that you unplug the washer for 5 minutes to reset the control board. Plug the washer back in and see if the controls work normally. This sometimes works to free up a stuck control.

If these tips don't help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
