Are you sure all the connections at the timer and motor control are seated well?

 Unit has been diagnosed as having a bad control board.  Pricing for this part alone is around $250+

I am done with GE Products.  Will purchase a new Kenmore or Whirlpool Washer today.

That's to bad, how old is it?

Just remember Kenmore don't manufacture appliances themselves.
Kenmore Manufacturers by Model Prefix - Who Made It for them?

Let us know what you end up buying.

Thanks for the update.  O0

Unit is a mere 4 years old.  This is the 3rd washer over the last 12 years.  Thanks to a dealer that worked out warranty claims previously.  No support this time. 

Whirlpool vs Kenmore washer - your opinion?  Need quickly as I will purchase today!

I like Whirlpool myself, but none of them last like they use too.

Being a Kenmore I have to wonder who made it and what you really purchased.
Care to share the full model number from the model/serial number tag that is located on the washer?

I'm sure your new washer will do fine for you, but it's getting harder and harder to find new washers that last like the old ones use to.

Did you happen to purchase a extended warranty?

Just wondering...

Congrats on the new washer.

As a packaging rep, I certainly understand manufacturers stamping different logos upon manufacture.  A previous customer of mine in the water softener business, made Kenmore, Whirlpool and GE softener from the same assembly line.  Different housings and colors, but all units pretty much the same.

The p/n numbers seem to be part numbers, maybe a part number for the instructions.

The installation instructions probably cover more then one model.

Sears/Kenmore model number start with three digest, a dot and end with eight digits.
For example, Model 123.12345678

On a top load washer I would look for the model/serial tag under the washer lid.

If the model/serial number tag is not under the lid here are some other places it maybe.

That washer is manufactured by Whirlpool.  O0

It's a Vertical Modular Washer, (VMW).

Lots of them around, easy to work on.
