SOURCE: Kenmore elite washer control lock on and can't use washer

There is a manual release. You can either take off the kick plate and reach up from the bottom, or take off the top and reach down. It's a teardrop shaped plastic tab coming out the bottom of the lock mechanism, and you just pull it down.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elite, Model: 22992. Switch

It's quite likely you have a bad lid switch.
I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the machine ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and just happened to see that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video on youtube which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video (direct drive washer repair) made it possible for me to do my own repair. You probably don't have any idea of the wonderful help you can get from youtube videos. Your first stop should be at youtube. Just search for the help you need. You could search for "clothes dryer repair" or "clothes washer repair" or "dishwasher repair". If you are not able to view and/or download the videos, or after you've seen all you want to see, I suggest you go directly to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers, dryers. and dishwashers as well as other appliances. Another excellent site is www.acmehowto.com If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart these youtube videos are wonderful help. I was so impressed with them that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about the videos. If you look at the back of your top load washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove, which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video (direct drive washer repair) is just what you need. After you've seen all the appropiate videos, or if you have a belt drive washer, you will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair nformation on most washers and dryers, dishwashers and many other household appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Another excellent site for DIY help is www.acmehowto.com Don't worry about the timer on a washer, they hardly ever go bad. I realize I haven't solved your problem for you, but I hope I have sent you where you can get help to solve the problem. Good luck with it.

Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer won't start


Hello Ameliafaith,

E-Z job...

If you take your model on line... to SEARS
(I don't ordinarily recommend)... BECAUSE THEY COULD ACTUALLY ... decode your ABREVIATED part number...

110. blah blah blah... (45986??)

The other sites actually have helpful VIDEOS...
But I already wasted enough time on this floundering with your
erroneous number (wrong no.)...

You will see these parts are reasonably priced and
very popular.. meaning they INDEED FAIL ... alot.

I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis top load washer and keep having the UL code pop up. I have leveled and re-leveled the machine with no avail. I have also ensured that my level is still in working order. If...


You can try to clear the Error Codes;

  • Unplug the washer for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Disconnect the U.I. (touch pad).
  • Plug the washer back in for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Unplug the washer.
  • Plug the U.I. back in and then plug the washer back in. Codes should then be cleared
  • if that doesn't work that indicates a problem with the software in the machines control board replace board with this part number 26-110-8564393R and this should resolve the problem part cost about 114.16 if you like go sears parts direct .com or call parts directly at 800-573-6456
