Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
Not spin at theend of cycle washer frontload
We've had that same problem since we bought ours 3 years ago...but it was intermittent, and we never knew when we'd get the spin-dry cycle to work. Sears made 10 service calls, and replaced everything in the machine except the motor and motor control board. Those two parts were ordered and delivered as a result of the 10th service call. Of course, when the service guy was here, the spin worked! After he left, the next load did not spin. Frustrated, I opened the front end and looked around. I had noticed how violently the drum shook while operating when the service guy was here, so I decided to see if the wiring harness from the motor might be loose where it plugs into another harness that must go to the motor control board. There was a definite tightening of that connection as I squeezed the two harness plugs together. (I tightly secured a plastic zip-tie around that connection to prevent it from vibrating loose again) Since then, I have had absolutely no problem with the washer. I called Sears and told them I had managed to solve this long-standing problem on my own, and how, and also told them to cancel the service call to install those parts I ordered, but to pick them up and reimburse me for them. (I never opened the two boxes that arrived) They did just that, and we finally have a washing machine we can rely upon to complete the wash like it's supposed to. It's been a very frustrating and expensive 3 years, but now all is well.

I appreciate your post, Rachel Kovach!
From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer is not spinning the final spinning and the clothes are still wet. If you washer is overloaded it will not spin properly to release the water out of the clothes. Also, a small load will cause your washer to not spin properly. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure it not kinked or twisted that could cause your improper draining. If all that checks properly it could be an issue with your drain pump, motor, and control panel. I would suggest consulting with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Good Morning Larry Looney, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire frontload washer is making a humming noise while in spin cycle. This could be a potential problem with your motor or drum bearing. In order to find the proper cause of the humming noise I would highly recommend having a professional technician come out to your home for diagnosis and repair. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases as well as any future issues. -Matt
