SOURCE: Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washer door locking mechanism issue

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.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

SOURCE: Broken door gasket how to replace on GE front

You'll need to determine which bellows gasket your washer needs before you undertake the repair. Go to the following link and enter in your washer model number to get the line drawing and parts breakdown.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?pop=flush
Click on the "find a part" and enter in your model number

Typically, the tub gasket (door seal) is part number #WH08X10022 with a new substitution part #WH08X10036. However, since each model can be slightly different, depending on the serial number which denotes when it was manufactured, you might want to confirm that the above gasket is the correct one for your particular washer.

You can also call the folks at Sears Parts Direct at 1-800-252-1698 and give them your complete model number AND serial number before you start in on the repair, so you can be sure you have the correct substitution bellows gasket.

It's a relatively easy repair, all you need to do is remove the spring retaining wire around the outer edge of the bellows gasket, just peel it back at the edge to see it. Now locate the locking loop by going around the rim. Once you find the locking loop, you can remove it using a couple pairs of small needle nose pliers as they make it easier to get off.

Once you've done that, you'll see the locking plate that holds the back side of the bellows gasket onto the outer washer tub. Remove those fasteners and you can get the bellows off and start in on putting the new bellows onto the washer, just reversing the order you used in the removal process.

Just take your time removing the old gasket so you remember what you're doing and when installing the new gasket so as not to rip or tear it in the process. I'd also suggest you let the gasket relax for a good 4-5 hours (to get the kinks and folds out of it from the packing box) before you do the installation.

Here's another link to one of my other solutions for installing a bellows gasket on a GE front loading washer that you can also review for more installation tips, etc.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on


On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

My washer panel will light up and the load washer light will come on, but the machine won't start


Hello,

To me that sounds like the problem may be within the door switch/lock, on the doorlock asm. is a little botton that sticks out of it,look and see if its their or perhaps its broken off. What that button does is tells the washer the door is closed so it can go ahead and lock it to start the cycle,its perhaps broken off sothe machine doesnt think the door is closed and thusly wont start.

My GE Washer Door Won't Lock


Try this, press the pause/cancel button twice. Open the door, ensure there is nothing blocking the door and close the door fully. Open the detergent drawer fully and re-close the drawer. Select Quick wash and press start.

If this does not correct the problem, call for service under warranty.

Washer load became imbalanced and forced door open, now cannot close door, lock stuck and washer will not run


Perhaps you have to change your lock, this is a sensitive point & will affect the smooth operation of your machine. Re. the inbalance, you hv to screw up & lock the front 2 legs (with check nut), adjust the front legs (screwed up) only to see if the machine does not move during wash/spin.
