Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually if clothes are still in the machine.
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the door lock mechanism has failed or the central control unit has failed. Replace the door lock mech. first. This should fix the problem. (before replacing anything make sure there is no obstruction around the switch or in the switch.) After the machine has been unplugged it may fix itself. if not replace door lock mech.

My machine keeps stopping mid cycle with an f11 error code, what does this mean?


The troubleshooting section of my manual gives a Generic fix for F codes other than F20,F21,F22 as "Select stop twice to cancel the cycle.Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excess water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START If problem remains, call for service."

Not much help! Try checking the inflow by removing the hose to see if there is any debris in the inlet (rust etc.) Also could be a balance issue. Rearrange load and restart the cycle.
Or it could also be a leveling issue. Use a level to see if it needs to be raised or lowered by turning one or more of the "feet" with a crescent wrench to level the unit.

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select

Check the following:

Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press
START. If the problem remains, call for service.

What is kenmore he4t button sequence for


If the washer does not come equipped with a "Clean" cycle, then run the washer on it's hottest setting. "Sanitary" or "Whitest Whites" will do. Hope this helps.
