SOURCE: Control Panel
I believe the DRAIN/SPIN button on the Kenmore Elite HE3 will clear a locked control panel if you hold the button in for 3 seconds. This is actually a safety feature to keep small children from playing with the buttons and allows the consumer to lock the control panel. I hope that's all the problem you have and that it is not a control panel failure. Let me know if this helps. PS The matching Kenmore Elite Dryer uses the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for the same feature.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer will not drain
Your washer does not have a cap on the drain pump. You need to remove the large rubber inlet hose from the front of the drain pump in order to access the pump impeller. This model washer tends collect debris in the large inlet hose area, so check it as well.
NOTE: If you own a wet/dry shop vac it will come in very handy to drain any residual water inside the wash tub. There's about a gallon of water that can remain in the wash tub and drain hose lines (this is normal). If you pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on it with a shop vac, this will make clean up much easier. Otherwise, you will need some towels to lay down under the pump before you remove the inlet hose.
For an illustration of what I'm talking about, you can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. Look under the "Motor/Tub" heading for item 35 (drain pump) and item 41 (Inlet drain hose).
If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

First, see the Sears parts list for your washer:
Next, see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:
It does sound like a Temp control problem. The Service Manual has testing procedures to verify the problem.
Also see the following for how to access the components in the Console.

It could be the central control unit (CCU) and one way to determine it is by disconnecting all components from the CCU except the control panel board. Disconnect power then remove the top panel to access CCU on the rear top of the cabinet and disconnect the components. Once done, plug in, select a cycle, then start the machine.
The CCU is indeed the culprit if the machine does the same thing. If not, then the culprit must be one of the disconnected components. Reconnect the components one at time then run the machine until you find the faulty component. Start with the door lock and switch assembly because it is the first thing being checked when a cycle is started then followed by the water inlet valve assembly and then so and so forth.
Indicate the complete and exact model number of the machine should you need further advice.
