Kenmore Elite Washers are the top-end model of washing machines the company makes available to consumers. Within the Kenmore Elites are several high-efficiency (HE) washers designed to be more energy efficient (specifically, by using less water and electricity) than other models. If you have started a load in your Kenmore Elite HE washer and need to reset it, simply press several buttons on the control panel.
Press the "Stop" button twice, and then press the "Power" button.
Choose a wash cycle (e.g. "Normal"), and then choose your wash options (e.g. "Hot/Cold" or "Cold/Cold").
Press the "Start" button to complete the reset process and restart the washing machine.
