Hello,

I am amidst a bathroom / laundery room remodel and my trusty Kenmore 80 series heavy duty washer isnt working. There has been re-wiring for outlets but there is power at the plug. I have the water hoses attached and turned on to supply water. When I pull out the knob to start the cycle I usually hear an electrical hum and the sound of water coming into the washer. Now there is nothing! I tipped the washer forward about two inches with the control knob pulled out and it started to work. The second I set it back down it stopped working. I did this a few times and now it doesn't work even if I tip it forward. I have no idea whats going on. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Mike

Some model# helps.

**There has been re-wiring for outlets but there is power at the plug.**

You have tried a lamp or radio in the outlet?

**When I pull out the knob to start the cycle I usually hear an electrical hum and the sound of water coming into the washer. Now there is nothing!**

??

Before the renovation you heard water entering the washer and now you do not??

**I tipped the washer forward about two inches with the control knob pulled out and it started to work**

Loose wire/power cord/outlet wire?

Test the receptacle with large load, not a lamp or radio. You might have a poor connection that would not be noticed with a radio or lamp.

Use a space heater, toaster to something like that. And wiggle the plug around.

Next would be to check the cordset on the washer.
