Question about Kenmore 3.5 cu. ft. Front Load Electric Washer
Just picked-up a front load washer, & the whole drum won't turn when washer is turned on.the belt is in very good condition.the washer has been sitting in storage for 3yrs. what can i do to make it work if anything???
My advice would be to to check out the website below.
this website will be invaluable to you if you want to repair your machine yourself. Calling an appliance repair service will be very expensive often resulting in buying a new unit do to the repair cost and labor charges if your appliance is fairly old. But at this site simply punch in your model number (they will even tell you how to find that) and a diagram will come up with all the parts for your machine.
The site will also help you troubleshoot your machine to determiine what parts you will need. You will then find videos to help you do the repairs. And the best thing of all is , if you order the part they are delivered FAST and if it turns out not to be the problem you can return the part for reimbursement. If you have ever had an appliance repair done and they installed a part that wasnt the problem you were stuckl paying for it and the next part they wuld think the problem was!.
Still having a problem then hit their forum and post a message explaining your symptoms and model ect and you will quickly have someone giving you advice on how to repair ect. Or simply type in your symptoms and search the forum and I will almost bet someone has already posted the same problem with your brand and and an answer will immediately be found.
Good Luck and don't let appliances intimidate you they are VERY simply machines once you realize how they work and how simple they are constructed.

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.

Although I had just cleaned the filter about 5 weeks ago, my wife had recently washed a pillow that came apart in the wash. I did not know this but noticed the clothes dripping wet after the high speed cycle. I was thinking it was the drain problem like I read in the post from bluefuzz. I pulled the filter and it was LOADED full. Before calling the repairman, CHECK YOUR FILTER! You won't need to disconnect any hoses.

this sounds very much like the bushes have worn out on the motor,they cost about £10.00 to replace and easy to fit,hope this helps.

Did any power surge happen yesterday? Check for any loose connections. If there is no power entering the machine , check connecting any other machine like oven or any electrically running machine or device at the power outlet and check the power.
If the power at the outlet is fine then i am sure the problem must be control board of the washer. You have to check the power to the control board. How handy you are doing that? Do you ahve an multimeter at home?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F70 is a communication error
which is caused when no communication is detected from the user interface to
the CCU (central control unit). Please check the wiring to user interface and
the central control unit, if that is fine and you can see the drum rotating
then replacing the user interface is recommended repair. If the drum won't turn
then the CCU needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other
