Kenmore HE2, not starting

Door locked, I manually unlocked it, but any other ideas of how to reset it or such?
I can go through the setting process, but when I push start it just beeps at me and does nothing.
Any ideas what's going on.
Also, I have not been using HE soap...Could this have caused the problem, and if so, how can I fix it?

    still does not work. I tried that before, then tried it again when you suggested it, but still does not work. I found a booklet to test for the different lights to light up and tell me what is wrong with it. It says that the door is locked...well, that is not the case, because I manually unlocked it. But when the problem first occured, the door did lock, but it was suppose to, because I was wanting it to start.

    Any other suggestions? thank you.

    P.S. the washer is only 2 years old.

Hello true bug
Welcome



You said, Door locked, you manually unlocked it, but any other ideas of how to reset it or such?
you can go through the setting process, but when you push start it just beeps at me and does nothing.
Any ideas what's going on.
Also, I have not been using HE soap...Could this have caused the problem, and if so, how can I fix it?

Yes,
As with an error code the way to reset th system is!,

First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If you can not reach the plug use the breaker!
This should problem and solve your problem.

The soap did not cause this. It was probably a fluke!

Next use only HE detergent and do not put more than the machines guide says,.
To much detergent will eventually destroy the seal and bearing.
How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm
Please remember to give me a rating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I think it will be solved!

The machine is locked and can't open with clothes washed inside,. Add garment light is on and the time is flashing'


Whirlpool-made Front Loading such as the Kenmore Elite washing machines use a door lock and switch assembly having a tab that can be pulled manually for emergency opening of the door. This tab can be accessed with the removal of the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the washer and drain the water from the tub before accessing it. The link below contains the detailed instructions on manual unlocking of the door.

My washer say f28 it is a kenmore HE2 plus


Hi,


"F28" means your washer is locked and not unlocking. To unlock your washer take the bottom access panel off by removing the 3 bottom screws.Reach up near the latching assembly & attached to the door latch is a little plastic pull lever. Pull down on this lever and open the door. Unplug your washer for 60 seconds and plug your washer back in. If the error re-occurs you need to replace your door lock.

Thank you!!

Front door is locked and I can't get it open


Hello shoya_garris,

There is a manual release tab you can use to open the door. Make sure you unplug it first. Remove the bottom front service panel. Carefully reach up and pull the manual release tab on the bottom of the door lock assembly until you hear it click. Wear some gloves there can be sharp edges on the inside of the machine panels. Hope this helps.

Thanks,
