Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
Hi, Welcome to FixYa. Based on you description you've got a door latch switch issue. For whatever reason the control is not getting the "door closed" signal. If nothing is blocking the door and you are certain the door is closed tight, the latch is likely faulty. Let me know if you are able to do it yourself and I'll guide you on changing it before phoning in a tech. Macmarkus :)

Unplug the unit for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn it ON. If that would reset the machine, it's perfect - Unless you need to get it repaired.
As i am not there, it would be tough to diagnose. I assume that there is NO error codes or any other issue. In this situation, either the door latch assembly has failed or it's a faulty control board. Both would require a tech to diagnose and fix it for you.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
