Sears Kenmore washer turning on, beeping, flashing lights - Now stopped mid cycle and will not reset.

Sears Kenmore washer turning on, beeping, flashing lights - which we could deal with, but today in middle of load stopped working, and had to just unplug it to get door lock to disengage, attempted to restart. However, while lights come on nothing happens and will not complete cycle or fill with water. Did control panel fail or could it be something else.

Will not fill with water, nor spin. Moved switch to drain /spin hear splash of water, then just hum no spin.
Switch too rinse & spin, just hum.

Check for any error codes

Wake the machine by pressing any button

• Wait 5 seconds

• Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously

• All LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed. A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

If the washer is a Better Model, the error code will appear in the display.

If the washer is a Good Model, the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the Start indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.

Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.

The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time.

The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code as long as the two buttons are pressed and held.

Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine: A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15 Example Code F1: the first digit would be 15 and the second digit would be 1. If this code would appear on a washer in the Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink fifteen times and the START indicator light would blink once.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST
The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob. To START THE TEST:

• On non-digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.

• On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up. (NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that can be rotated 360°, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.

• Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.

• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.

1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.

2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.

3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.

4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.

5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.

6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.

7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.

8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).

9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.

10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

Exiting the Diagnostic Test mode and returning the washer to normal operation: Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord.

Yes, Do what Rick mentioned first.


Sears Kenmore washer turning on, beeping, flashing lights
Do you mean the washer turns on all by-itself? If so, it's definity your control panel/board that's bad.

This Kenmore is made by Frigidaire.

Here's the repair manual for your model: https://www.applianceblog.com/manuals/5995413084_Washer_2004.pdf

Read/Print pages 70-72 to access your control panel/board assembly.

Here's the control panel/board for your model you can order:
137005020 Control-Electrical

Jake, I've seen you answer the ghost turning on the washing machine and the blinking lights issue a couple of times. My machine is doing the same thing. It's at least 11 years old and has been a great machine. It recently started turning on and now is beeping and lights flashing in the middle of a wash. The module number on the paperwork says its a Kenmore 48102. I know most people are stating their machine is 417... I'm pretty sure you're going to tell me the control board is out and needs replaced but will it be the same as the one you're suggesting for the 417?

I appreciate it,

Alison

Please post your model number, the model number tag is located inside the door.

The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash.

Ok, that would be Error Code 44.

E44 Control board problem. Replace the control board.

Please post your model number, the model number tag is located inside the door.:)

Why do you have a question mark after it? Are you not sure?

Do you not see the model number tag?

Take a picture of the tag and post it here. I might be able to tell. Is the serial number also faded?
