Re: My washer doesn't open...

The instruction manual suggests running the "drain & spin" cycle, because there is most likely water left in the machine.

Kenmore elite hE3 washer has f32 code flashing. Door is locked and would not open.

F/32 error code; this indicates a pressure switch failure. The Sud error code indicates a suds lock condition. Be sure that you are using HE laundry detergent & the drain hose is not too low.

We have a Kenmore Elite front loader and yesterday while washing a load of laundry, the lights flickered and then the machine turned off. I checked all the breakers, unplugged and replugged and nothing...

There is a pull tab at the bottom of the door latch assembly that can be used as a manual release for the door by pulling it down.
Lean the washer backwards and unscrew the 3 screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer to remove the lower panel under the door. Once the panel is removed, reach the tab with your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right side and pull it down. The door will open.
If there is an error prior to the jamming of the door, the door latch assembly must be replaced. Feel free to let me know if that is the case.

Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load Washer leak from dispenser

I was just about to call the service teck when I decided I shouldn't be this stupid and try and fix it myself.

I took the tray out and looked in with a flashlight.
Saw nothing.
Cleaned the tray and then checked the drainage hole inside the opening where the tray normally feeds the machine the soap.

I found a inside of the liquid XXXKing laundry cap partially blocking the drain.

Took it out and works fine.

Kenmore elite h4 front load washer throwing error code ''f' During middle of cycle i have to push pause and cancle and drain and spin to get it to work

I just fixed this problem in my kenmore washer today. You need to take out the three small screws on the bottom of the front panel. You will need a star shaped screw driver. The panel will fall off when the last screw is removed. After taking off the panel, you will see a large round piece in the middle that should be white; take this piece and turn it to remove the filter. Your filter is most likely clogged with small laundry items or lint and dirt. Remove the blockage and the washer will work great again. This is frustrating, so my wife and I are going out to buy some netting bags for washing small items. Make sure you have a towel under the drain before you open it.

Before doing this though, take a second and reach up under the rubber gasket that circles the inside of the washer door. Your blockage could just be in this area. Our washer had both areas blocked.

Hope this helps

Sometimes I just have to unplug the machine, wait a few seconds and plug it back in and it works. I guess it resets itself or something.
