SOURCE: Kenmore frontload washer won't unlock

To manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened


Or pull out your dispenser tray, along the rear edge you will find a cord, pull this like above. Depends on your model.

SOURCE: My Sears Kenmore, 2 years old washing machine is ripping clothes

If this has a paddle,check it for a sharp edge,also make sure it is not loose, the top cap should be able to be pulled off to see the locking
bolt,and you can check to see if it has loosened.

Feel everywhere on the inside of the washer for a edge that might be catching your cloths. You can also try the gentle cycle and see if it does not rip them.

You did not post the model# ,so I have no clue what style it is.

He5t tearing clothes


Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

Was washing clothes hit the pause button to add another piece of clothing now will not turn on. Totally dark


Possible that the interruption could have reset the processor or memory. Allow the machine to be off power for a long time , even overnight. Press down all panel buttons and check if there is any moisture within the panel. IF so use a dryer to warm off.
Now connect the washer while holding the start/stop/pause button, If there is no display at all then check the main power to the board and also the sub-voltages within the board. If not it is possible that the board has failed.

Kenmore HE3 stuck in delay cycle and won't unlock or cancel


YOu more than likely have suds in your washer, or an extremely unbalanced load. push the pause cancel button twice, that should unlock the washer. open the washer, and look inside. Is there a lot of suds, or towels that are tangled up? If so, add some fabric softener to the wash tub and do a rinse drain spin (for suds) for the extremely unbalanced load, take the towels (or what ever load you are doing) and put about 1/2 of them in. I have the same washer and have experienced this "problem" once or twice in 7 years. And those were the two culprits. Hope that helps

C45072 Kenmore washer will not start. Did one


I've been going crazy with this too. Turns out all you have to do is hold down the "options" & "select" buttons at the same time until the "lock light" (the light just above the "pause/cancel" button) turns off. I guess that's why there is a line under the option/select buttons that have a lock symbol connecting the two.

Cheers!

Washing machine suddenly stopped working during cycle


Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Kenmore front load washer


If that machine was so easily damaged (the electronics in particular) it is a sorry design.  About the only thing I would suggest is to actually pull the AC plug and ignore it over night.  Whatever safety 'feature' caused the door to lock, may reset itself if given enough time.
And yes, Sears service is not as wonderful as they claim.

GE Adora front load washer overloaded now won't start


Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer

If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.

Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.

To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.
