Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite front loading washer, HE4t. Only 1 year old. It seems to be having a problem starting. The door closes and if I go to touch any cycle and push START, nothing happens. The display reads SEt if I hold the start button down. All the lights work, no F errors. Just SEt. I used to hear the solenoid click on the door, but do NOT hear that anymore. I went and used a dang screwdriver on the door latch, thinking it might just be 'loose' and latched the lock closed, now I can't close the door. Any ideas??
1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
