Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The door closes, the panel works, but when I press start, the door doesnt lock and nothing happens.
There is a little black button that is depressed when the door is closed. I suppose this closes the system so the washer won't start if the door is ajar. The button was broken off, but we could not tell. $65 part and all's well

Open the top access panel, 3 screws in top rear.
push up gently on one of the center black wired connectors that connect to the control unit (in back top of washer)
if it starts to work then the relays on the control circuit board need to be re-soldered . a normal reoccurring issue
its rarely the latch
