    I resolved the problem by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite - Interior water dispenser stopped working

Frozen water tank, some of these had an insulation kit that will prevent this from happening. Make sure you have water coming out of valve to tank, if so it will probley be a frozen tank. Make sure fridge is on factory settings. If it doesnt thaw out, check into the frozen tank kit...

SOURCE: Newer kenmore elite trio refridgerator not cooling

The repair person came and in my case it was a start capacitator connected to the compressor. When he replaced the start capacitator the compressor came on immediately and started working. The charge $ 240 (Flat Rate) for the fix. The repair person told me its a universal start capacitator which I found online for $29. Worth trying to fix yourself before paying $240 if your a handy person.

SOURCE: Replacing the Ice dispenser motor on Kenmore elite refrigerator?

I had the same problem with our Whirlpool Gold. Which by the way was just out of warranty. The guy who repaired the problem told us that since there were so many replacement dispenser motors at different supply locations that there must be a problem. I think that the root cause is the arm in the ice holder is hard to move, and it burns the dispenser ( #2252130) motor out. Whirlpool should get to the bottom of this and offer free or reduced repairs. Motor # 2252130

Hello, I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis washer model


On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond


My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.

LOCK BUTTON ON


I think on this model you hold the lock button down until the light blinks off, about 3-5 seconds. If it locks by itself when you open and close the door it may be within the serial number range that had a recall on the dispenser board. Most of these were upgraded about two years ago but I still run into a few that were missed occasionally. If it is one of these units, as far as I know the recall is still open and it would be repaired free of charge. The most likely thing is that some one held the lock button down without realizing it though.

DW won't drain and "lock" light is stuck "ON"


Joe, see if you can reset the board by pressing heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal..(new board). Old board is high temp wash-air dry-high temp wash-air dry. See if it goes back to normal. If not you probably have a stuck or shorted keypad on the overlay..not the board. Catriver...post back
