Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore front load washing machine model # 417.44082400. It says LOC and gives me an error when I try to turn the machine on. The door locked light does not come on. I can open and close the door, but I can't turn the washer on.

    Yes,this was very helpful. I had tried unplugging and pushing some of the buttons, but evidently not the right ones.

Hey,

could it be the child lock feature?

Look for the 2 buttons on it that have a lock symbol. Push & hold both for 3 seconds. That should toggle the child lock mode.

Have you tried unplugging it for a while and see if it helps.

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

Our kenmore supercapicity 3.5 front load washer's door look will not engage. It reads ERR and the door lock light does not go on.


LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I have error code loc the machine won't


The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

Frigidaire front load, ERR LOC, washer won't run


Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!

Front load washer won't start


Telescope, Im assuming your model starts with 417.44092, Kenmore made by Frigidaire. You have the best model with the digital display. Try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes to see if you can reset the board. If that doesn't work put it into a test mode by doing the following: Turn the dial to drain spin, press cancel to turn off the led's. Within 5 seconds press and hold the options and pause/cancel together for 5 seconds. All the led's should light. Now by turning the dial 1 click at a time clockwise you are going to test the following. 1rst click- hot water solenoid 2. bleach solenoid 3. Bleach and wash water solenoid 4. door lock solenoid activates 5. door lock solenoid de-activates. 6. the washer will fill and tumbe. 7. washer will fill and spin 8. drain pump and door lock will activate and washer will go in high spin. 9 clicks from the start, the last error code will be displayed. To clear the error, press and hold the options and cancel buttons for 3 seconds. To exit the test, just unplug the washer for 5 seconds. Sometimes these electronic boards just get a glitch and have to be reset. Make sure that the dispensor door is shut all the way. Try these things first...Catriver..post back.
