SOURCE: how do you open the front cover for Kenmore front loader 110.42926200

Sure thing, under the door is a kick panel, held on by three hex screws,standard uses 1/4 inch and torx uses a 9/32 socket. A slight down tug will loosen the panel and behind that you will see the pump at right front. Just to the left is a round soda can shaped housing with a large turn screw lid attached to the pump. Grab a bucket and some towels, unscrew the lid like a jar of peanut butter slowly to let the water into the bucket. This may require two trips and some getting wert. The trap is attached and easy to clean. Next reach behind a gently shake the black boot joining the tub to the pump for coins and lint. The last item is getting a bright light and inspecting the pump through the small hole right side that can be seen once the trap is removed. Check for debris then put a finger in the hole and check the impeller for disconnection from debris/

SOURCE: kenmore front loader he2t power button stuck

First of all, the power button is not a separate part. It's integrated into that whole interface and cannot be fiddled with. You need to take off top to get to console; you should see what else you need to take off to get the console off. There are some screws as well as plastic catches formed into the console that need to be depressed to disengage it. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

SOURCE: Washer not spinning

Plug off the mains. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

First check your kitchen drain (or wherever your washer is installed)by pouring a good amount of water into it, to see if it is clear. Try snaking it out.

On some Kenmore washers the F21 indicates "Slow Drain". You could have dirt in the filter attached to the drain pump. There should be a screw on cap that is removed to clean the filter. The pump is behind the lower front cover. It is also possible that the pump went bad.

The kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 9 I opened the door and threw something else in and now a light is on thar says controls locked and it wont do anything

There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.

Door won't open

the lock switch is probably stuck. make sure machine is off but plugged in still. Push in on the door while gently giving a couple of thumps around the lock area and the lock will probably "click" open.

Control lire

This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
