Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

HE3 Front loader Controls Locked

At the end of a wash, the timer went to 1 minute for 30 minutes. It seemed it was going through the rinse cycle. I hit the cancel button. Now the "Controls Locked" light is on and I can not get the washer to start.

    Kenmore HE3 Ouiet Pak 2 has the control light on that says control locked.
    What to do?

    The cycle stopped and than a light came on next to "control locked." I've tried pressing various buttons and then unplugged the machine for an hour or so. No luck.

Try 'end of cycle' pushed down till the light goes off. Or locate the button with diagram of 'lock', & push down till the light goes off.

I have a front loader washer Kenmore Elite Model #796.40311900 that spins SLOW, not FAST as it should on spin. The digital readout works normally.


sounds like maybe drain filter is plugged and unit is not draining fast enough. if you have drain access in front pull it out and clean it.

Timer light on front panel of dishwasher has stopped working--how is it replaced?


Most of the led lights are fused to the circuit board. Sounds like the circuit board is going or gone bad. I'm not sure because you did not give the model of the dishwasher.

Most of the control lights are led and do not go bad. But the circuit board that controls the lights can go bad. You may be able to fix the control circuit board but replacing it would be easier.

Kenmore HE3 washer emits steady, constant beeeeeeeeeeeeeep


Depending on how your washer controls the beeper, it could be a stuck relay or a fried transistor.

Ultima WF840 won't go from wash to rinse cycle


the pump is blocked, so the sensor detects that the machine has not emptied in the allocated time, so this will reset the time.... the pause is because it knows there is a probblem getting rid of water.

location: bottom right near the motor. ensure you tip the washer as far forward as you can so you can get a bucket under in order to prevent flooding.


hope this helps

Ran HE3 without Water, it's now locked up


Unplug the washer and wait 30 minutes, sometimes the next morning for the machine to reset. Make sure the water is on because it while find multiple failures and lock up, Secondly you can try putting the machine into diagnostic cycle to ensure it is ok. Press drain/spin and select no spin for spin speed finally press prewash quickly two or three times and let it run, any flashing codes?, hit prewash again after writing the codes down.
