My Kenmore washer will not start. I checked the lid switch and it's working but nothing works when I use the dial. The dryer works fine. I have a Kenmore model number 417.61712510 combo washer dryer. Any ideas please?

Is this a good question?

Cause 1

User Control and Display Board

To determine if the user control and display board is defective, try pressing the buttons on the control panel. If some of the buttons work, but others do not work, the control and display board might need to be replaced. Additionally, if the display is not working, check the power to the user control and display board. If the user control and display board has power, but it isn’t working, replace it.

Cause 2

Timer

The timer is frequently misdiagnosed—before replacing the timer, first check all of the more commonly defective parts. To determine if the timer is defective, consult your washer’s wiring diagram and use a multimeter to test the timer for continuity.

Cause 3

Line Fuse

The line fuse blows if the washer circuits are overloaded. If the line fuse blows, the washer won’t start. To determine if the line fuse is at fault, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the fuse does not have continuity, replace it. In addition, you should investigate and resolve the problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for shorted out components such as the wires, motor, or drain pump. If you don’t resolve the underlying issue, the new fuse will blow too.

I have exact same model exact problem is it won’t fill with water but acts like it will cycle through with no water. It locks and unlocks though. I’ve tested both water hoses thoroughly. Nothing is working! If I find a solution I will let you know!!
