Customer Question

Kenmore series 700 washing machine
Type 580
Model #***********
Won't initialize wash. There's a quiet humming. It didn't finish draining & spinning the last load.
Finally got it reset by unplugging for a while. Tried to start it by pushing down the start button for several seconds. The lid lock light wasn't coming on before, now it is. It will let me set it for a new load but will never start.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

  • If it is not humming anymore,. the issue is most likely control failure. The tech sheet for your model is attached. Following its instructions, will it start a diagnostic cycle?
