Unplug unit then You can open the door, then remove the spring loaded clamp that secures the door boot (rubber) to the front panel, carefully pull the door boot away just where the door latch is (no reason to completely remove) remove the 3 screws securing the door latch to the front panel..Then reach behind the panel and pull the latch towards the opening the give just enough wiring to do so undo the 3 wiring connectors to the latch assy. then pull out the rest of the way Reverse the procedure to reinstall

What you describe still sounds like a door switch problem but if you can run it through the diagnostic cycle then it should be ok.
The only thing different in starting diagnostics and starting normal cycle is you don't press the start button in diagnostics.
If you know how to put it into manual diagnostics you can check all the buttons to make sure they are working properly.
It is unusual to have 2 different problems at the same time and if the switch was broken, it definately would not start the cycle.
Put it into manual diagnostics and check the start button.
Post back and we will go from there.
Thanks/Mike

Kenmore model 110.42832.201 won't start, door won't lock - cycle selection button just flashes.


Hi, check you door latch. When you open the door, there should be a black square hole on the frame and a black round hole above it with a pin sticking out. The pin is probably broken off and the door latch assembly needs to be replaced.

Take care

Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washer door locking mechanism issue


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.
