I have a kenmore front load washer, model: 417 42042100
It makes loud noise and becomes louder during the spin cycle.
The drum is loose when I inspected through the front door.
My problem is how to open the cabinet and replace any broken parts.

Thanks.

CHeck to see if the screens in the water valve are plugged. If not the hot water side of the valve went out. Replace the water valve and it will fix both the hot and cold problem.

SOURCE: kenmore washer...the water just runs it never fills up.

I have seen this problem numerous times on service calls. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. The key symptom is the wash tub that continously attempts to fill, but cannot achieve the proper water level. This is often caused by not having an air gap on your drain line, improper placement of the drain hose, or a standpipe that is too small in diameter. The following link explains:

If you place the drain hose in the standpipe too far, or seal the top of the standpipe, this can cause a vacuum which will cause the symptoms you describe. A tell-tale sign will be a sucking noise as you pull the drain hose from the standpipe. Read through the link I provided. If this does not correct your problem please post back and let me know before you rate this solution. This way I can try to assist you further. I hope this corrects your problem.

Probably the drain pump seal has gone bad.
Check it for leaks.
If your floor is good and level look for water near the front center of the machine.

If the washer is taking more water during spin, then most likely it is thinking the water level is low for the load. It is a smart washer and tries to adjust water according to load. This can mean the level sensor is giving wrong sensor. I would try to run the washer with a cleaning agent (not bleach) available from specialist stores or washing machine retailers.
Also observe if the drain pump is running all through the spin cycle. If not that is likely causing water to remain. But controller is thinking there is no water and not starting the pump when required.

You should be able to locate the parts in these diagrams.

Washer fills up but drum does not turn. After this part of the wash cycle has elapsed the washer will contniue normally with the rest of the wash (i.e. spin....). So not a fuse problem. Not sure of the...


If your motor does not run after the washer fills, then your failure is in the water level pressure switch, the timer, the drive motor or the wiring harness. The pressure switch would be the first component that I recommend checking. With the washer filled to satisfy the pressure switch, you can disconnect electrical power and pull the tan and violet wires off of the pressure switch. With a volt/ohm meter, measure the resistance across the leads of the pressure switch where the tan and violet wires were connected. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance with the washer full of water. If not, then your pressure switch would need to be replaced.
