The wash cycle buttons to start the washer sometime activate the washer (turn it on) and sometimes pushing the cycle buttons does not turn the machine on. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Paul. If the buttons are sticking on your control panel, check for a loose connection. If the connections are good, you will need to replace the control panel 8563810. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Elite Calypso, fills with water but does not start, when I touch stop it will hum until unplugged. I have already replaced the machine control board and electronic board.
Answer Rick, You'll need to check the drive system 285927 to see if it has failed and "jammed" up and won't drive the wash plate and associated parts. Also check the motor 285917. You didn't mention any error codes or abnormal noises, but with the parts you've replaced that pretty much makes it a mechanical failure vs electrical.
I have a Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959KQ. When I press the touch pad for Normal, you can hear the cycle start, but 8-10 minutes later it stays in that part of the Wash status only. Will not finish Wash, or go to Rinse. I tried other cycles, Hand wash, Delicate. These just cause it to accept water in the washer for 2 seconds, then it stops and there is a humm sound you hear, but nothing else happens.
Answer Hello John,
You could have an article of clothing between the tubs, a bad motor 285917, or a bad motor control 8541034. I would recommend to pull the tech sheet from the inside of the front of the cabinet and run the diagnostic tests. The fault codes will point you in the direction you need to test to pinpoint the issue.
