    First you will need to open the unit up and pull the drain boot from the tub to the drain and check for a partial blockage. Post back if that is clear.

If front loader washer quit spinning, check the wax motor switch. You can make a temporary fix by providing a short on the door lock contact. The Kenmore 417.29042992 front load washer provides a test connector that's readily accessible behind the front lower panel. Insert a wire between connector pins 1 and 2 (red and white/red color wires) and your washer should spin during the spin cycle. Hopes this helps.

SOURCE: washer will not do a spin cycle for rinse or end of cycle

you can check two things,. One is, is the belt broken or stretched, the other is the motor, is the motor turning if the motor is turning then replace the belt. If the motor is not turning replace the motor.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

HI, i have a zanussi FJDR1466s washer which is now 7 years old and i have grey lines on washing after a wash also there is grey grunge in the door seal. Can you tell me what i should do to correct this...


Hello, W/D here.

We use bleach to clean the washer from time-to-time.

1. Mix bleach 50%50% with water, and wipe the door seal and bellows liberally.
2. Pour the remainder in the tub, along with one additional cup of straight bleach.
3. Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach.
4. Run the hottest cycle available for your machine, and the hottest rinse cycle available. For our machine, this is the "sanitary" cycle.
5. When this cycle has completed, run a regular cycle to purge out any residual bleach.
5. Leave the door open between wash loads. This allows the moisture to evaporate, and keeps the mold from developing. This wasn't ever an issue with top loaders. Most people left the lid open! It's more of a problem with front loaders; there are more places where water can collect and pool.

IF you don't get relief by performing the above steps, you may have to replace your bellows seal (the part between the door and the tub). I have seen where some folks' smell problem just won't go away, and that's how they cured it. Normally, the bleach wash and leaving the door open will do the trick. You may even have to do this several times to get the full effect, but it's worth a try, and is much less expensive than replacing a bellows. Like I said, it usually works.

Best regards, --W/D--

Its the lid safety switch. the top of the machine should pop loose with a yank on each front corner one at a time then it should hinge up enough to see what has happened. the switch may have broken or the connector has come off. Good luck
