Tip & How-To about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

Kenmore HE2 front load washer

Stay away from front load washing machines as they have too many problems and too many expensive electrical parts such as the door lock part that my tech. changed with no results $140.00 plus central control unit (ccu) which costs around $300.00 not to mention the unit on the underside of the top panel that runs the full width of the machine "like a mother board on a computer" I have no idea what that is worth but it sure looks very expensive and there are more components that if you look at the failure/error display code they start at F01 and run right up to F34 that to me is a sign that there are too many problems for one washer. Also the large rubber gasket that seals the door has to be maintained or you could get mould and a ransid smell in the machine and on your cloths. Just a warning by top load not as many problems

the door lock is clicking on and off and the washing machine has difficulty starting I think it is an electrical fault as I have to keep pressing the start button until it clicks on

You have a fault in either the electronic lock control, or in the main board on the front of the machine. Is it under warranty? Your best bet with these front-loaders, is to leave these repairs to technicians! These monsters are EXPENSIVE to repair, and if you're inexperienced, you could create further damage if you try to move parts the wrong way.

door wont lock

I solved my own problem...
The machine stopped due to either a heavy load or clogged drain. I cleaned the drain (by taking pannel off the front of the machine). Then, the machine wouldn't cycle and it said "door locked" but the door wasn't locked. Basically, you have to let the machine finish a complete cycle (whether or not it actually does anything). Every time the start/pause button flashes, push it to have the machine try to start. This will eat away at the time. Eventually it will finish the cycle and say 0:00. Now it should run. This can take up to 2 hours so be patient!

Maytag Model # MAH4000AWW Neptune Front Load Washer Problem: Door will not lock. All cycles during wash work except the spin cycle.

Clean out your filter after ref. to user's manual. Try some WD40 on the door mechanism (on machine), lock & unlock door 5 or 6 times while machine is off.

whirlpool duet washing machine door lock error

My front loader has the door locked and I can't open it. I have already turned off the power and that didn't solve the problem. The manual says that if you try to open the door too soon after the cycle completes, then the door locks. How do I open it now? What do I do?
