Removing panel cover

How do I remove the front panel cover of my kenmore elite 4t to get to the computer of the machine. I'd like to look at it myself before calling expensive repair man. My washer is not draining and spinning right and sometimes shows F6 error code.

Kenmore elite he 4t. Controls are locked! Tried unppluging still the "controls locked". ARGHH! What to do???


The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem on a Kenmore Elite:

Keep in mind, control panel features can differ between models. However, the instructions on how to lock/unlock the control panel are printed on the front panel of these washers and are printed in the owner's manual.

If these prelimiary measures do not work, you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator intervention.

If you have questions, or need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem for your washer:

Keep in mind control panel options between models may differ slightly, but the locking feature instructions should be printed on the front panel. If you are not sure, there should be a tech sheet inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. If not directly behind the panel, the sheet should be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have a more serious problem. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The Control Lock feature is a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the front panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls.

Kenmore elite lock problen


I had the same problem. Turned out, electronic panel behind the door had spring action malfunctioned because of misplaced spring, which in turn caused panel to not generate a signal which, stopped the whole cycle.
Here is what I did to fix the problem- 1. Open the door 2. Remove the ring behind rubber-cover on the door. 3. Reach out to the inside-right of the door. 4. Remove the panel after removing electric connections. 5. Fix the spring action. 6. Put everything back and start the machine over.
