Kenmore 417 44052400 front load washer does not spin at high spee

The washer does not spin out at high speed and my clothes are soaked after completing a cycle. I have check the hoses around the water pump and they are all clear. The machine pumps out water just fine. I ran a diagnostic and received error code 47. I do not know if my problem is with the wiring or with the front door sensor. How can I pinpoint the problem? How difficult will it be to repair the unit? What can I do to clear the problem?

Most likely door lock ..remove spring around front edge of door seal pull seal away and roll back(some earlier modes the front part of seal was glued on using a sharp knife edge cut seal and glue away from cabinet) remove the 2 screws holding lock to cabinet front and pull lock through opening remove wiring reinstall in reverse

Is there a water level setting control for the washer or does it automatically detect and control that? I wondered if the control that has the options high/med/low/hang dry/no spin(lights are on or off...


Water level is determined automatically by the load in the machine. A pressure switch senses the water level after the clothes soak up all they can and just enough more is added. The settings as you suspect are for the spin speed.
