Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3T washing machine. I just put a load in and pressed the Sanitary button to start the wash and received no response. I then pressed several other buttons, but again received no response till I got to Delicate when it responded. I then unplugged and replugged the machine, but this problem continued. I then unplugged it for several minutes, but the problem continued.

    The door was closed fine and only the Delicate button worked. I lightly hit the control panel to jiggle it and then all the buttons worked. I started the machine and it's working. It appears that the connection in the control panel is loose or something. Is there anything I can to do address this? Is there a place where I can find out how to take out the control panel and check the fittings? Thanks for your help so far.

Does the motor spins when you start any cycle.Also does any kind of error light starts blinking.If there is no response at all when you press the button,and if there is power to the machine ,then the door has to be checked.Is it properly getting closed and is the door latch properly working.If the door is closing properly and latch is functioning then the control panel can be the issue,that has to be checked to resolve the problem.As there is power so power supply is working but no button responding so the control panel board has to be checked and replaced.Remove the control panel and check its connections and check,if its got loose then it has to be refitted also wiggle the control panel connections and check if machine starts responding to the function. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Kenmore he3t door locked cant reset or open


Kenmore HE3t sanitary cycle setting has changed. Water temp selection only allows Hot/Cold selection but should offer the Extra Hot selection. All other settings test out properly. Is there a way to reset factory settings for cycles?

Need a manual for my kenmore elite he3t front load washer


My Kenmore Elite HE3 has been great for many years, and now I have a little problem for the first time.
I can usually press cancel to change the program. This morning, after I selected one program and press cancel, it won't cancel. Lights just blinked. So, I press Start to wash with selected program, but it won't start. It won't start nor cancel no matter what I do.
Should I unplug the unit?
Thank you so much!

How long is long? I have to hold the button down for about 5 seconds and I think that is to keep from accidentally turning the machine on . If it is longer than 5 seconds then maybe something IS wrong.
