The only reset there is is to disconnect the power for 5 minutes, if that doesn't correct it then the machine is defective

Oven door locked


Many Kenmore ovens have a control lock that keeps the oven door locked even when the self-clean cycle has not been in use. This feature is meant to prevent children from opening the door or using the controls on the oven. To cancel the oven lockout, push and hold "Stop" for three seconds. Wait 15 seconds for the oven door to unlock automatically.

Reset
After verifying that the oven lockout feature has been released and waiting at least an hour after a self-clean cycle, if the oven door remains locked, try to reset the oven. Disconnect power to the range, and wait 30 seconds. Restore power and try again. If the door remains locked, disconnect the power and try to reset the circuit breaker or fuse. Contact Kenmore if the door remains locked after both attempts at a power reset at 800-827-6655.

Kenmore dryer he3 lockout wil not let it start


On most models of Kenmore HE3 dryers, you will need to press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 deliberate seconds or until the lock is disabled. Some models have different controls. The directions for this control lock are normally printed on the console under the button that is used to enable and disable the control lock. If holding this button does not work, then you could have a failed user interface control or a bad control board.

The control lock light is on. How do I turn it off?


The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured front loader (such as Kenmore Elite), the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual.

If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue).

Wont scan.the only channel's it will get is 11,21,41,61. when you hold the button down to talk it make's a squealing sound.it acts like it is locked.when you put it on the [set] switch it makes the noise...


Do you have a "lockout" feature in the radio?
Maybe try resetting the scanner and start over from the beginning. Usually by resetting, will disable any extra features (such as the lockout)

Control Panel


I believe the DRAIN/SPIN button on the Kenmore Elite HE3 will clear a locked control panel if you hold the button in for 3 seconds. This is actually a safety feature to keep small children from playing with the buttons and allows the consumer to lock the control panel. I hope that's all the problem you have and that it is not a control panel failure. Let me know if this helps. PS The matching Kenmore Elite Dryer uses the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for the same feature.
