Kenmore HE3 lock latch stuck with door open

HI!!
I have a Kenmore HE3 that needs the CCU board replaced. In the mean time, while tinkering with it, I caused the seemingly spring loaded white plastic lock latch, on the inside of the lock, to become stuck with door open. The part has sprung into the locked position, and now is blocking the door, so it can not lock at all.
I have manually pulled the switch underneath, and it has no result. Any suggestions? Thank is advance!! :)

    Thanks... the model number is 11045862400. I was tinkering around with it, and I caused the white peice of plastic on the inside of the latch, the part that hooks around to lock the door, to lock up. It seems as though I hit a spring or did something to mess up the tension. I have taken the latch out of the machine, but can not open it to see if I sprung something inside. Any suggestions?

I just had the same problem.I was able to fix it by removing the door lock as if you were going to replace it.
Look closely at the assembly you will see a series of clips that hold the 2 halves together . I opened them and separated the 2 halves you will have a long skinny spring release from the end with the door switch. save it you can put it back in when you put it back together. once you have it apart you will see where the locking mechanism has flipped and will not return under the stainless pin . use a pair of pliers to slide the pin out then pull back on the white manual slider and push down on the heavy duty spring mechanism. while it is pushed down you should be able to swing the door latch back into its correct position then reassembly in reverse order making sure you have the spring back in the switch and the solenoid (Brass part) engaged in the white slider. take it slow and take a few minutes to examine it when you open it and it will be self explanatory where everything goes. good luck

Sears Electric Dryer is flashing F01 What is wrong?


The F01 indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.
You can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website.

INTERMITTENT F-DL AND F-11 CODES


On Whirlpool duets, and the Kenmore HE series starting with the HE3 - HE5.
A common misdiagnosis is to replace the door latch when the user gets an F-DL error, or an F-11 & F-DL intermittently. If the machine shows an F-DL, and you hear a distinct clicking as the board attempts to latch the door just prior to the code appearing, the most common problem here is the door lock relay on the CCU. A good way to confirm is: after pressing start, while the CCU is attemting to latch the door, with the top cover removed, gently tap the top of the CCU with a screwdriver handle (or any blunt object) this will often free the relay. I've seen MANY door latches put in, only to replace the CCU a few days later.

F22 code ?? duet locks but will not run


Hi,


"F22" is a door latch failure error code. At the beginning of the wash cycle the door will attempt to lock several times. If the latch fails to lock, the washer shuts down and the error code is displayed.
In some cases, the error code can also be displayed if the CCU goes bad. There is a door latch relay on the board that controls the door locking mechanism. The CCU is not serviceable and must be replaced if defective. In addition, make sure all the connector plugs between the CCU and door latch are connected and snug.

Thank you !!

Kenmore model 110.42832.201 won't start, door won't lock - cycle selection button just flashes.


Hi, 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.

Take care

I have a F-01 fault code on my Kenmore HE2plus front load washer. model # 11047512601. Sears talked me thru the software resets and still had the F-01 error. do I need to replace the Main Control Unit?


Hi,


The F01 fault code is indicating an EEPROM error or a PUMP DRIVER error. A communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM on board the CCU occurred.

Possible causes of an EEPROM error:
A power glitch may have caused this error. Unplug the power cord for 3 minutes then reconnect power.

Possible causes of PUMP DRIVER error:
The pump driver fails to activate. Replace the the CCU board.
Most likely the CCU board will need to be replaced.

Thank you !!

I have a kenmore elite he3 front loader washer. it gives me a f11 code when i attempt to wash a load.


F/11 is serial communication error code. It means the communication between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU) is not good. Possible causes include worn or failed drive system components, faulty CCU or MCU, broken wiring harness, faulty drive motor, or faulty wiring harness connections in the CCU, the motor, or the MCU.
