Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
A while back you offered to provide instruction on how to replace the door latch on an HE4T. Could you still do so?
Also, is there some way for me to visibly see if the latch is broken?
Thanks so much!

As far as begin able to determine a visible flaw with the latch, the only part that you can check (that I know of) is the latching mechanism inside the slot in the door. The rest of the latch assembly is a sealed component, like an electronic module. There are a few connectors attached to it that you can check to see if they are making proper contact. You can access the rear of the latch by removing the to panel of the washer. Take the panel off by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. You should be able to see the connector by looking down behind the front panel on the right hand side. You can also use this as an alternate method of replacing the latch if you like.
Let me know if you have further questions.
