Kenmore 417.44082400 no spin

Kenmore 417.44082400 manufactured 5\05. Noted after large towel load, towels still very wet. Appears to not have spun out. Entered Diag mode and got code E50. Also E20. Researched alot on web and your site. Removed bottom face to clean impeller and hose. No debris (no capture screen in this unit). One-way flap unobstructed. Had unplugged apx 4 hours. Reassembled and plugged back in and still appears to be in Diag mode. Beeps 5 times every 15 seconds and flashes all 5 lights and reads E50 again. Your help is appreciated...Update before posting this.Replugged back in and no longer in Diag mode. No longer showing E50. (not sure why when before, was unplugged 4 hours!) When Dial is turned to a laundry setting, minutes show on digital display and the "LOC", but door can still be opened and then reads "Err". If START is pushed, "Err" again. I suspect door latch, but dont want someone to just agree with me. Need someone qualified based on symptoms to tell me thier ideas. Im very mechanical and work in service at auto dealer. I think thats all symptoms i can recall. Thanks again :-)

    Oooo, further info. When first noticed, timer had run to "1" min and then stopped. When attempted a "Rinse/Spin" only, Timer started at "13" tried to give water (few onces maybe entered tub) and then timer slowly counted to "1" again and froze there...

The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

Takes three cycles to dry towels, displays 45 min. turns off within 30 min. still not dry


2 possible reasons, either the towels have not been spun at a high enough speed and are too wet, or the dryer is not getting hot enough because it is not switched to a high enough heat setting or there is a partial element or thermostat or humidity sensor failure. You should spin your towels as fast as you can, 1000 MINIMUM but 1400 or more is better. Did it ever work? Is it a new drier? Is it getting hot? 45 mins is a short time anyway to dry a full load of towels.

Front loader tub out of balance


Try running the washer with a small load. Still out of balance? Call a technician.
A very large load or a load with one heavy item is hard to balance. For example, one pillow cannot be spun but two can. Lots of jeans may not spin well. Wash a towel with the jeans.
Check the manufacturer's website for more help.

GE Front load washer spinning too slow????


A couple of things come to mind,if the micro-processor senses the load is out of balance enough, it will control the RPMs(reveloutions per minute) or slow it down in order to avoid damage to the suspension system, so readjusting the spin speed manuallly probably would help. Although that machine should be able to handle 9 large towels easily! Next thing, have you cleaned out the trap inside the lower access panel, if it is restricted you will have draining problems. Good luck !

Hi,
When you are putting the heavy clothes (towels robes) the sleeves of the towels will come out easily and get stuck in between the drain out valve so it will not sent the water out properly please avoid heavy clothes(towels robes) try to give a normal load

Beach towels sopping wet after machine done spinning


The washer will not proceed into high speed spin with just two large beach towels in the basket. The washer is detecting a out of balance condition, and remains in low speed spin. Solution? Try adding more items into the basket. With only two towels, there is not enough mass to balance the washer. With more clothing or towels, there is more items for the machine to balance, and reach full speed spin.

The only other thing that could cause this, would be if the water in the tub is not completely draining in the time allowed. This washe does not have a cleanout, and checking for an obtruction in the pump is difficult. I would go with the more clothes first, then see.

front load machines will normaly spin slow on first part of spin cycle this helps distribute load evenly before hi speed spin also if load is extermely off balance ..a large towel with load of light fabrics will never spin to full speed due to off balance produced by wet towel hi speed spin is normaly acheived in last 3-4 min of spin cycle

Kenmore front load wet clothes


Before going further it is important to determine if the machine is reaching full spin. Make sure the unit is set to MAX extract and watch the inner tub. The tub should be spin really fast (1000 rpm's or better) during the final spin. If not you have lost one of the phases on the motor.
