Remove the lower kick panel -- remove three 1/4 inch hex head screws and the panel will come off in your hand. Now, reach your hand up between the upper front panel and the washer drum, keep it on the latch side of the machine. There's a disk a little larger than a dime hanging from a little cable. You can't see it but you'll be able to feel it. Grab the disk (however you can) and pull it downward. You should hear the lock click when the door unlocks.

Have you tried pushing the door lock/unlock button? I think it may be called the "rinse & spin", and under that it says door lock/unlock.

Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washer door locking mechanism issue


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.
