Underneath the washers front edge are 3 screws remove and access panel will allow you to get to the large filter that unscrews.
be prepared for some water. use a small pan or lots of towels.
unplug the washer from AC first.

How do i get to the main drain and pump on a kenmore elite front load washer

You will need a few towels. There is a cartridge like filter located on the front lo2er left corner of all current front load washers for cl3aning purposes. Remove or open the access panel plate and begin unscrewing the cartridge. After about 3 full turns it will begin to leak water. If you have a elevation base with a drawer place towels inside there to soak up water that leaks out. Once drained unscrew and pull straight out to clean the lower filter. There is another place to clean out just inside the drum on the front just under and behind the door seal

Kenmore HE2 washer stopped in teh middle of the washing, no power and can not open the door. Please help me in opening and fix it?

All frontload HE washers have a rip cord you can use to manually open the door but try to clean out your pump filter first. Your tech sheet is also there behind the service panel. Simply going by the diagnostics and cleaning out the filter could save you a bunch od money. Here is a nice video which shows how. H.E. PUMP FILTER CLEANUP

Every time I start my Kenmore HE2t washer there is

If it has a clean cycle that says, "Bleach Only," run it with 1/2 cup bleach right in the machine. If not, run it on the longest, hottest cycle you have. In the future, leave the door open slightly between loads.
