Yes, it is the door latch assembly. replace this and you should be good to go. You can get it from an appliance parts supplier.

No spin cycle, stopped running

Hello, sounds like this is going to be a pump issue, take the lower panel on the front off the machine, there you should see something that resembles a gas cap like on your car. It will be located some where near your pump...Unscrew this cap making sure you have some towels handy to mop up the water that runs out. Once you have pulled out the cap attached you should find a filter cage. You will likely find a bunch of debris,coins,lint and other stuff blocking the pump. Replace this cap or filter and plug machine in and try again, You should be good to go. If this does not fix the problem you are going to need to replace the pump. p.s not sure why you are looking to replace the door latch since you mention the machine is not spinning. The door latch has nothing to do with the spin other then locking. Good Luck!! if you have any toher questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike

What does "IE" mean when it attempts spin cycle?

is it IE or LE please confirm it. if it is LE code the fixing procedure is given below This usually happens if you're washing on a delicate setting with a moderate load of clothes. Apparently, delicate also means very few items to wash. To clear the LE code - no need to unload the clothes:
1. Press the power button to turn the washer off.
2. Press the power button to turn the washer back on.
3. Cycle the spin cycle selection to 'no spin'.
4. Press start.
The washer should set to one minute, lock the doors, then drain out the excess water.
Once the 'End' cycle comes up, unplug the machine for several minutes.
Plug the washer back in, press the power button, then set the washer to 'normal' with 'low' spin setting.
Note that the only difference between the normal setting and delicate is the wash time and spin cycle speed. If you have a moderate to large load of delicates, use the normal setting on low spin cycle. The clothes really don't care. Also, make sure you're using 'HE' detergent - low suds. Regular degergent in a front load is not recommended.

Kenmore front load washer 417-44082400

My kenmore front load did that just a few months after I bought it. Unfortunately it was the the electronic board {brains of cycles} that had to be replaced. Had to replace it 3 times!! Warranty did cover it. Look into your warranty--at that time the boards were $200-$250 each!!
