Kenmoore Elite Quiet Pak 2 HE3 (45862) Control Light Locked on
Suddenly we noticed our Control Lock light went on last night after a load and will not go out. Door unlocks and opens fine but no functions. Unplugging etc. did not help. assume we ahve a bad sensor or switch somewhere but not sure (of course 2 months out of warranty)

Re: Kenmoore Elite Quiet Pak 2 HE3 (45862) Control Light...
There's a button on the panel, bottom left, which has small print under
it with instructions to press and hold three seconds to unlock the
controls. Let me know if you have any further questions. Have a Merry Christmas.

There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. To
unlock the washer press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 10-15 seconds. Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
the lock switch is probably stuck. make sure machine is off but plugged in still. Push in on the door while gently giving a couple of thumps around the lock area and the lock will probably "click" open.
The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.
LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.
I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

Door lock error
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock
it six times before displaying the error code.
Possible Causes / Procedure
• Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
• Door switch/lock unit failure.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
Power shd be on, try to hold down 'end of cycle' button for 3 seconds, try door after a minute or after hearing a click. IF NOT:
To Manually unlock the door lock system: 1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet. 2. Remove the front lower kick panel. 3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly. 4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab. 5. Gently pull the tab down about 1/4 inch or until a click is heard. 6. The door may now be opened.
With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely. If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out. You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part. I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2. I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.
Press and hold the control lock button down until the light goes off. This is a child proof feature that may have come on if you leaned against it to long. After lock light goes off you can use the machine.
