Make sure you have the knob on a cycle selection. Sometimes while loading, you may hit the knob and get it just in between a selection and might not start. If that isn't it, I would say you need to replace your start button. Take the control panel off and if you have a volt meter, test to see if there is a current.

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

Control locked. How do you unlock it?


The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance.

The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

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.

How long is long? I have to hold the button down for about 5 seconds and I think that is to keep from accidentally turning the machine on . If it is longer than 5 seconds then maybe something IS wrong.
