    No porblem. I hope you have recovered well. I want to be sure here before I give you the shocker. You have power to the display but it won't start, correct?

  • John Christopher Nov 11, 2012

    yup. We lost power due to the hurricane, and my wife tried to run it while the house was being powered by the hurricane. I ordered and installed the Microcomputer (#8181769, new part # 285925). When I installed the micrcomputer, I heard a click, and the front door locked. The washer still gets power, however the cycle will not start. Now, the door will not unlock. Thanks for your help!

    I meant powered by the generator

    OK,you will also need the control interface and possibly the motor control. But since the water does not start to enter the machine I think it is the interface. Here is the part to order.http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/clic... Don't worry if this doesn't correct the problem. The parts come with a 365 day, any part any reason return policy.

    You can't run the machine on a generator, it will take out the electronics. As you see now. The power fluctuates to much on a generator . Keep me posted!

    Thanks Rich! I will let you know if it works

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: We have a Kenmore Elite Calypso, it is not washing

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code LD means Long Drain. It flashes when washer takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.
Error code CA means Average current limit. This error code will display if the load of clothes is more then the normal load. Also if current limit breaches then status signal comes back from the motor controller. The unit will return to standby mode and display CA. Average current trip occurs if the current draw at the motor windings is greater than 5.55 amps in 2 seconds. This error occurs if there is a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

How do I reset and unlock the door on my Kenmore Elite quiet pak 4 washer?


Press and hold "end of cycle" at the right end of your panel for 3 - 5 seconds. The machine power should be on.
Try the door 2 minutes after this.

My Kenmore Elite smells like mold!


Run a cycle ,no clothes in, with about 3 cups/ 750 ml of bleach in it. How? put a fil a plisticbag with the bleach and set it in the washer. It will tip up when you start the cycle. You should end up with a clean washer and clean empty bag.

I have a kenmore elite oasishe washer and it keeps setting off messages that I am not sure the meaning of. It finished washing the other day and it had hc on the machine what does this mean?


This HC error code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the hot and cold water inlet hoses are switched.
If the hoses are not switched it could indicate a problem with the Electronic Control Board.
You can try to rest the washer by unplugging or flipping the breaker to the washer fo 2-5 min.
Restore power to the washer and try running a short cycle.
This will help clear any irregularities that the control board may have encountered.

New Kenmore Elite Front Loader will not get past 'Sud' cycle,


Hello wheeljc; I had the same problem when I purchased my Kenmore Elite in 2006. I have a HE4t front load. It's possible that you're using to much detergent, if you're using HE liquid it only requires a small amount and does a very good job.

The door will stay locked if the machine did not drain properly. Try running a Drain & Spin cycle.
