Unplug your machine, remove the top panel, doublecheck all of the wires are securely connected. Sometimes the wires are loosened due to the vibration of the washer. Hope this works for you! It worked for our Kenmore Elite H3 when no cycles would start and flashed the error code "dL/F" (door lock failure).

It could be the lid switch or the timer.

SOURCE: error code F9 for kenmore elite washing machine He3T

it will not let you unlock the door because the machines full of water?--the machine will not finish its cycle because the vacume switch is still detecting water , The water will not drain because the pump is blocked with something , probably a wire from your underwire bra,all you can do is undo a pipe undernieth and let the water drain away and take the pump to bits ?There may be an inspection cap somewhere on the front at the bottom

There is a black plastic piece that sticks out from the machine. It is located at about
2 o'clock. You probably broke off the piece as I did with mine. If you have a wooden skewer (or something like it), stick it in and depress the button. You can glue the skewer in place.
That should fix your problem.

Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

This is a very simple and inexpensive repair that you can do without the assistance of a repairman. The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. The part number for a replacement for your washer is 3949238.

NOTE: You DO NOT need to drain the washer to replace the lid switch. Once a defective switch is replaced, the washer will drain.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

My HE3t Kenmore washer will not start. All the lights come on and you can select the cycle but the start button will not start the machine. We did unplug it to reset the machine but that did not wor


This may be a stupid question...but is the water turned on? Stranger things have happened!

If the drum inside doesn\'t turn, it may be an electronic issue. Hopefully the washer is under warranty. Best of luck!

Kenmore he3t door locked cant reset or open


Kenmore HE3t sanitary cycle setting has changed. Water temp selection only allows Hot/Cold selection but should offer the Extra Hot selection. All other settings test out properly. Is there a way to reset factory settings for cycles?

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.
