Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washer door locking mechanism issue


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.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer door will not open


The error code F-02 on the Kenmore HE3 means that the drain pump could not pump out all the water within 8 minutes. Not sure what this has to do with the door being locked,, but its also possible that if the machine thinks there is still water in the drum, or if in fact there is still water in the drum that it would keep the door locked as some sort of safety precaution

Kemore HE3 front load washer won't start


Check you door latch. When you open the door, there should be a black square hole on the frame and a black round hole above it with a pin sticking out. The pin is probably broken off and the door latch assembly needs to be replaced.

Buttons lit up, washer not going


If nothing works, no water and no motor action, then it sounds like a door switch or door lock problem. Check to make sure door is properly shut and switch is operating.

HE3 lock


Have you tried pushing the door lock/unlock button? I think it may be called the "rinse & spin", and under that it says door lock/unlock.
