Kenmore HE2 Plus; digital display goes black when any knob

This answer was rated:

Kenmore HE2 Plus; digital display goes black when any knob or button pushed. Unplug to reset, and then same thing happens. I tried adjusting the door switch and the machine worked up to the point where water was entering the tub, then black out display again. I left the unit plugged in, and it reset itself and started beeping with the display on.
Display Bad? Is there a reset? Switch or adjustment?
Is there a wiring diagram for the unit?
Unit is less than 20 washes new, but was stored (father died) for two years before installation, so no warranty.
Thanks for whatever help you can offer.

ok, ordered; I will add more to your payment if you can tell me what might have caused this, is it common, and how I can avoid it in the future. It's this something I can expect to fail often?? Maybe I need a newer new washer...



well these are electronic (of course) and a lot of the time its a bad solder joint or a power surge can cause this. I had one that the pins in the board were soldered to short to make a good conection with the interface plug and it caused the same type of problem,try checking all the connections on the board before ordering may want to consider a new machine, I recomend the whirlpool direct drive top loader, these front loaders have all kinds of issues. hope this helps, thanks Bryan
