Question and Answers

Q:

My HE 3t washer makes 3 beeps every 60 seconds. How do I fix? 11045966404 Kenmore Elite Residential washer

Q:

How do I reset the lock on my Kenmore HE3t washer?

A:

Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below. Carefully reach up along the front panel of the washer and pull down on the manual release tab that is on the bottom of the door lock assembly until it clicks. This should unlock the washer door.

If the door lock assembly is broken, you may be able to replace it yourself. You can order a new door lock assembly from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 8182634.

The procedure for replacing the door lock assembly is provided in the second image below. Be sure that the washer is still unplugged when accessing this component. After replacing the door lock assembly, the challenging part of the repair will be to replace the spring clamp on the boot of the door opening. Start by working in the clamp on the opposite end of the spring and working evenly around both sides. Pull outward on the clamp to expand the spring as you work your way around the opening. Significant force will be needed to work this clamp back onto the washer door opening. I recommend wearing gloves during this procedure.

It's not the door that is locked it is the machine that is locked in "Control Locked" position.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. I know it is frustrating having an issue with your washer as the laundry piles up. I will do my best to help.

The F5 error code indicates that the Central Control Unit (main machine control board) detects a temperature sensor resistance that is out of the normal range.

The F5 error is normally caused by a failed NTC temperature sensor. You can unplug the washer and test this sensor for resistance with a volt/ohm meter to verify that this is the cause of the failure.

 SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others. Wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

To access this sensor, remove the bottom front panel of the washer (with it still unplugged). The first image below shows how to remove this panel. The temperature sensor is in the middle of the heater that is located on the front bottom portion of the washer tub. Remove one wire from the sensor and measure the resistance across the component with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure about 10K to 12K ohms (10,000 to 12,000 ohms) at room temperature. The resistance chart for this component is shown in the second image. If the sensor resistance is way off, it will need to be replaced. If the sensor is okay, then you could have a problem with the wiring harness. The temperature sensor circuit plugs into the Central Control Unit at the TH2.1 and TH2.2 connector. Check to make sure that this connection is secure and not corroded. You can measure the resistance of this circuit through the wires that connect to the control board to determine if the harness is okay. An intermittent problem can be difficult to diagnose. If the temperature sensor circuit is okay, you could have a failed Central Control Unit.
