I have the same dishwasher and the latch has never worked. Finally after 9 months and many service trips I went back to the store and they gave me a new dishwasher. Dealing with Sears has been a nightmare.

F22 error persists on my washer, does the door gasket have to do with it?

F22 is usually a door latch error on Kenmore washers so you are working on the right area. The door gasket rip should not cause that unless it is stopping the door from closing all the way. It is usually the door latch itself which has switches built into it that causes that error or the main board is not reading the latch operation.

My dryer door won't stay shut while drying

Dryers have a Door latch that is female and the strike that is male. When the door is closed, the door latch hooks up to the strike and keep the door closed. PLEASE inspect these items. Also, make sure that the door is loose from the screws that hold it to the body.

Error Fdl on kenmore

This is a door latch problem. Check the door itself and make sure it is shutting all the way. Sometimes the hinges bend slightly or the door becomes loose which prevents the door latch from locking. If the door is OK I would recommend replacing the door latch.

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.

Kenmore elite microwave 721.80833 stops cooking intermittently

Check the door switches if one is bad it may think the door is being opened and stop the unit from running. If it is from a bad connection it will get worse as it gets hotter while running.

Kenmore Elite problem

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.
