Kenmore model # XXXXX I get a LOC Err and it won't start
I looks like you are having a door lock error and it will need to be replaced. Before you replace it check the part on the door and make sure it is not broken. If it is intact, the part number you need is:NNN-NN-NNNNand it is 49.88 at Sears.

Nothing is broken, door locks ok but when I try to start the machine it display LOC Err and it won't start
The lock consists of several contacts and if any of them are shorted or broken, it will not start. It is the safety feature on that unit.

The part that I need to order is the one on the actual machine right?

The plastic clip/lock on the door looks ok.

Absolutely. I pulled the part up using your model number.
