    I am having the same problem. I tried unplugging it to see if it would reset it. I tried pressing the pause/cancel button. I made sure the water supply is on. I checked all of the doors to be sure they were closing completely. I think it may be time to call in a professional, which upsets me. Anyone have any ideas?

    Press and hold the drain and spin button until the control light goes out maybe didn't hold the button for at least deliberate second maybe as long as 10 second to disable the control lock If you don't have manual go to sear . Com look manual free free

I think you may have the same problem I had. Try pressing the "options" and "select" button until the light near the Lock symbol goes away. Give that a shot. It worked for me

    Mine must be a different/older model as it doesn't have options or select buttons. After trying
    a bunch of different settings, I just spun the main control knob around clockwise 360 degrees,
    and it started right up.

I have a kenmore top load high efficiency washer. When i press start it acts like its going to start then it unlocks and won't wash.

My problem is similar to one posted top. My HE Kenmore washer stopped in the middle of the cycle. I repaired the latch lock, thinking that would solve my problem, but now it will start the cycle, and stall at the rinse setting. I have to physically set it to rinse and spin, and sometimes that doesn't even work. Washer will be two years old this August. I have NEVER had a problem with a Sears washer, and I am VERY disappointed in this one. My last two gave me twenty years of service without a repair. Maybe Sears needs to go back to making theirs in the USA.

Clanking noise during spin cycle

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.
