Question about Asko W6461 Front Load Washer
As soon as the start/stop button is pressed when one of the problem programs is selected, the machine freezes and no button pressing or knob turning will have any effect on anything at all. Only turning the machine off with the power button, then turning back on, will allow anything to function again. Is there a simple solution for this?

OK. Here is the real solution: the dry sensor itself needs to be clean. There is an excess of clothing fiber deposited over the sensor. When you use "sensor dry" the sensor is not detecting humitity flow and it "thinks" that the clothes are dry, therefore it turns the machine off after a minute of operation. The sensor is located on the right side of the plastic grill where the filter is inserted. Stick you head inside the dryer and look down towards the mounting plastic grill and you will see it. You will see 4 holes where the screws are installed to mount the grill. Remove the screws and you will release the sensor. You will see the black and white wires connecting to it when it comes loose. I don't think that it matters where each one is connected, but I did mark them in order to re-install them back to their original connectors. The sensor is made of two metal pieces that run parallel to each other. Disconnect the wires after releasing the sensor. Use a vacuum to clean it. I actually washed it to remove all fiber dust from the surface of the plates and dry it with a hair dryer. Clean it very well so you do have to do it again anytime soon. Re-install the sensor and reset the dryer. This should do the trick... Good Luck!

have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.
