Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer
The washer was making a lot of banging in the final spin, with 2 min to go in the cycle, the alarm went off, it showed error code 6 and shut off. It wont turn on & I cant get the wet laundry out
Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually if clothes are still in the machine.
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.
This code means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed. Due to this the machine shut itself down.

Tips for a great answer:
One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.
The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.
You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.
If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.
