If there is water in the tub, it will not unlock. There is a pump filter that becomes plugged that you can access from the front by removing the lower panel. It unscrews and allows to be cleaned out. If still no luck, there is a release at the bottom of the door lock to open the door manually.

I had the same exact problem. I was getting a F-02 code. After alot of headache and searching I found out I had 3 baby socks stuck in the drain. Which explained why the water would not drain. There was atleast a gallon of water in the pipes so when I opened the cleanout.... WATER EVERYWHERE!!! make sure you have atleast 5 towels readyto go when you do this

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem

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.
