Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Hi.The control is in a "LOCK" feature. Press and hold the Options and Select at the same time until the "LOC" led goes off to take the control out of "LOCK" or to put it into a control "LOCK".
NOTE_ If this standard procedure doesn't release the lock, this will indicate that the main control module is damaged.

The DDO error is telling you that the detergent door is open. This error occurs when the detergent door has not latched properly when the unit is started.
There is a sensor that is dependant on a magnet, that is attached to the door, to trip it and send the proper door closed signal to the control oard. If this magnet comes off, or loose the signal will not be sent to the control board, and the error code will be displayed.
Now for the bad news. The magnet is in such a position that a considerable amount of labor is required to replace it.
Unless you are mechanicly inclined and handy with a box of tools I do not recommend that you attempt this repair. It is very involved and is not a DIY repair. It is best to let a tech handle this repair. An approximate price range for this repair is $175.00 to $275.00, or more depending on where you live.

SOURCE: Washer's tub will not move
I don't know what the E5E error code refers to but I can think of at least one possible reason for no motor action, even if motor itself is ok and board has been replaced. The relay itself could be faulty with no power from the output side, even if it clicks on. Less likely but still possible would be a faulty overload protector at the motor.

first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit
