Machine won't work. kenmore 90 series

I was in the middle of starting my laundry load and i had closed the door of my kenmore 90 series model # 110.4788291 and it suddenly started makin a ticking sound and it had a funny kind of burning smell and it wouldn't work after wards. I emptied the machine and manually drained out the water and turned everything off, and unplugged it, i than later plugged it back in and it wouldnt work, i turned of the fuse and back on again, still wouldn't work. i tried using different cycles and nothing works. No noise nothing. It doesn't work at all, it's obviously broken, but what can the problem be?

Re: machine won't work. kenmore 90 series

Might be a broken motor or a blown fuse. I would suggest having your machine looked at by a specialist. If it's old, you might consider replacing it.

GLTF1240ASO Front Door Won't Lock/Close

Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on

On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.
