    They are sending out a new one. I hope I have better luck this time. Thank you.

    They replaced the door lock switch.

    Our HE5 will get to one minute of finishing its cycle and then stop.  The only way we have been able to get it to unlock is to hit the circuit breaker - not convenient.  I was wondering if there was some other reset code we could use.  The manual says to press the cycle button.  Did that; didn't work.

Non existent code. if under warranty call tech support. probably control board. can manually override door lock. by removing lower panel and pulling tab at bottom of lock mech.

Kenmore elite he5t front loading washer door locks, unlocks, then locks again before beginning cycle


This is aself test procedure on the door locking mechanism . You will also hear a click, the drum will make a partial turn,and the door will unlock berore locking again. Once the door has locked a second time the washer will begin tumbling and adding water. The sensing process will continue until the correct amount of water is added to the load.

Kemmore elite 3t has error code f and will not drain


Check your door when it closes, it should hit a push-in button above that door latch, at times I have seen the door hinge bent down just some, causing the door not to strike that button dead on.

If thats fine, then its likely to be the door latch assembly or the CCU board bad.

The code is a door lock error!

Code F29 is not in the booklet and I can't open the door, is there a way I can fix this because sears can't come out till Thursday, I have so much laundry to do


code f29 in my book is Door Unlock Error Possible causes/procedure are as follows: 1 door lock mechanism is broken 2. door switch/lock unit failure. a. check door switch/lock unit for foreign objects. b. unplug washer or disconnect power. c. check wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and central control unit (ccu) d. check door switch contacts E the resistance of both door coils between pin 1 and 3 should be approx. 320 ohms... the door can be unlocked manually... to do this you 1. unplug washer. 2 remove the lower kick panel (i think 2 screws on bottom hold it on) 3. Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit. 4. located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a tear-drop shaped tab. 5. Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4 of an inch or until a click is heard. 6 you should now be able to open the door.
