No power, no operation
The Kenmore service person determined there was no power to the timer assemby, the box behind the wash selection dial. He also told me I needed the motor control unit that sets inside the lower rear corner of the housing. This was going to cost $526 to fix. As it turns out, there was nothing wrong with the motor control, I only needed the timer control, a $123 part.
The repair, which took literally 15 minutes, follows: 1) remover top cover. 2) unscrew washer select dial (the big one on the far right). 3) remove two screws set behind the dial that hold the unit to the frame of the washer. 3) disconnect the two circuit plugs -- one white, one black. Keep track which is which. 4) Reverse above procedure with new timer control unit. Pretty simple, huh? Worth $526? I don't think so...
