Our front load Kenmore was disconnected for a painting

Customer Question

Our front load Kenmore was disconnected for a painting project. It is reconnected, water is turned on, but water does not reach the tumbler.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Six years. Let me find the model info.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: We think it must be something very simple. The washer was disconnected. Then reconnected. Model #402.49032011 Unfortunately, we cannot locate our owner's manual. We had a remodel done, and everything is a mess! (Running out of underwear!)
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't think so. We had the same problem when plumbers and electricians moved the washer a few weeks ago as they started the project. We can't remember how it was resolved, but it seemed simple.
