Flashes LOC and won't start


The solution to the "LOC" error depends on many factors, including which Elite model machine you own and the cause of the error. If your machine has an "Options" and a "Select" button, try pressing and holding these for five seconds to clear the locking error. You can also try unplugging the machine for five minutes and then plugging it back in

Washer is reading LOC and the error button flashes every time I try to cancel. It just started before the cycle began


I am not sure if this will solve your problem but it did mine. Press and hold the option and select button at the same time until the Loc goes off. It should fix your problem..... Hope it helps you...... Good Luck

Kenmore washer model44082 will not work. It flashed err and LOC. I have unplugged and tried to cancel.it still flashes err and then LOC.


Hello

LOC error code is displayed when the control panel is locked, to unlock it press the OPTION & SELECT button and hold them for 20 seconds. This should reset the control, if it does not then replacing the control is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have error code loc the machine won't


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.

Take the front panel off your washer. Inside the washer attached to the side you should find a manual that will help you with the error codes.
