Hi

Yes Christine....it is either the door latch that is broken or the door lock-switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Before replacing you can blow compressed air on them so that if dirt is stopping it from functioning it is removed. Hope this helps...

    Hi Christine,



    There is some disassembly involved in this repair, if you would be able to do this then I would suggest you to buy the latc and replace it. Remember to unplug the washer first.

    Door assembly is easy to replace, however to replace the latch you would need to remove and reinstall the door boot spring. You would need a screwdriver and a pair of needle nose pliers. Please check the below pictures, they would be helpful in replacing the door latch assembly.

    To reinstall the door spring, start working in the clamp on the opposite end of the spring and working evenly around both sides. Pull outward on the clamp to expand the spring as you work your way around the opening. You would need a great amount of force to work this clamp back onto the washer door opening. Please wear gloves to protect your hands. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

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?
