Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer

Open Question

Washer 110.42924200 K.E. HE3t

Started fine in heavy duty mode. After 20 min. I went to change the setting from heavy duty to express setting. I hit pause/cancel button and it stoped. Then I changed the setting, but nothing will work. I tried every combination of buttons I can think of, even the 3 sec. lock out one. I even put everything back to the same setting but it still will not respond. The lights are on but no click. Even the pause button will not click any more. To make matters worse, I somehow poped the door latch closed poking around and now cannot seem to get it back open. We've never really had any problems before this.
thank-you for any help.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite 10.4708 front load washer won't start with new load

Uh oh! It did it again! This time I had to unplug 6 times for one cycle. Seems to be on the last 2 minutes most of the time. Today my husband is taking the control unit and looking for soldering problems. On Askmehelpdesk.com this man told of taking the bottom panel off and there is a little black latch thingy you pull to open the door lock manually. Also he said that the K2 and K4 relays are usually the problem if it isn't a soldering issue on the connectors. ( On the CCU);. He said one of them is usually burned and to clean it off and then switch it with the other one which carries less voltage, therefore doesn't burn. You can use a pencil eraser to do this. My husband told me they did this in the Army for MOose code contacts. He just told lme the soldeirng looks good on the connectors and is now working on the K2 and K4 relays. If you go to Askmehelpdesk.com/appliances you will see these tips are for the Whirlpool Duet whic is apparently the same machine as our Sears Kenmore H4's. Gosh, I hope this helps someone as it sure is not fun trying to track this problem down. I am glad you got Sears to come out. I will NEVER and I repeat NEVER buy from Sears again! Did I mention I wrote a letter months ago when I was having a hard time getting warranty work done.( Which I never did) that I had written to the pPesident, CFO and the Texas Attorney General for Consulmer Protection Division and never got a response from anyone?

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite HE3t, door is locked and will not open

You may have to use the manual release to open your door. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

Your washer may have experienced a momentary program glitch which can cause interruptions in operation. Sometimes resetting the Central Control Unit (CCU) will coreect these problems. To reset, you have to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes. If the problem reoccurs after a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem. Take note of any symptoms and/or error codes that may be displayed. If these procedures do not correct your problem, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

70 Series Kenmore Washer Agitates in Heavy Duty regardless of switch selection


Yours is a 2 speed motor. Does it spin in 2 different speeds. If so, then it most likely is designed with only to agitate in 1 speed. If it only spins in one speed, then your motor is defective
