Question about Kenmore HE3T Washer
welcome to FixYa.
The place to begin would be indeed at the sensor, and then check the heating element and connections. In my experience though most times it is simply a wire has become loose or broken since these things vibrate so aggressively throughout a cycle.
**Unplug the unit from the wall before performing any service suggested here unless otherwise stated...some service requires voltage supply but safety first**
If you remove the access panel from your washer in the front, it is held in place by three torx head screws, size T20 you should find a tech sheet on the right hand wall...from front, or taped to the inside of the service/access panel you removed.
The heater and sensor are located at the front of the outer tub on most of the HE3 machines as shown below...the image here does not have a heater, but some do some don't ( if you can provide a complete model number I could speak to your machine specifically )
Once you've visually inspected the sensor and wires and heater ( if applicable) you'll need to verify the components themselves are good.
Let me know how you make out to this stage and I'll help you move forward from here if still necessary. Good luck.
Thank you for choosing FixYa today.
