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.
