This is joyce
What I would do in this situation is fix the door lock first before I would do another load of clothes. you can go to Kenmore.com put in your model # and download your manual to your machine if you want to fix yourself
or you can call service tech out. I will help you find one in your area if you need.
thanks,
joyce

How to bypass door switch of washing machine


You don't say why you want to bypass the switch. Why not replace it? It means someone could open the door during a wash cycle flooding the room.

How do you stop the cycle immediately after starting (found a sock that needs to be added in the washer) and then re-start wash cycle


You can only add items to the wash for a few minutes after that washer starts. If you found something you want to add you have to restart the cycle. This is a safety feature added to the front load. After the washer is full of water it doesnt allow the door to open so the water in the machine doesnt flood you laundry room.

My Kenmore 800 series washer leaks from under the front left during the spin cycle. I looked behind it and checked the connections but all seems fine in that area. What could be causing this?


Same problem! Flooded the laundry room and about 1/4 of the basement. Happens randomly, not every load. Checked all hoses, they are snug and don't appear to be leaking at all. During the wash cycle it you can hear it spraying water inside the washer and the floor starts flooding. I bought the washer Sept. 19, 2009 and have had this problem for about 5 weeks now. Sears refuses to do anything about it, because it's no longer under warranty.

My LSR7233EZO was draining on the floor, flooding my laundry room and kitchen, during the rinse cycle. What would cause this situation?


check the outlet tube for cracks or a loose clamp, also make sure the tube is draining in the sink or drain tube and has not slipped out.

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room


Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

THERE IS A CLEAR HOSE THAT CAME OFF AT ONE END DURING A SPIN CYCLE. I NEED A DIAGRAM SHOWING WHERE IT HOOKS.


Model number please.
The clear hose goes to the water level switch in the control console and to the air dome on the side of the wash tub.
If you run the machine without replacing it correctly you will flood your laundry room.
