Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Machine has stopped and will not open front loader door
To open the door manually:
UNPLUG the machine...
Remove the toekick panel (way down at the bottom).
Feeling along the inside of the front panel. You should be able to find a tab shaped like a teardrop attached to the door latch unit.
Pull the tab down just a little bit ... gently ... until the door opens (or you hear the latch click - then try to open the door).
Is the machine displaying a code?
