Question about Kenmore 43042 Front Load Washer
I just bought a new Kenmore 3.5 HE front load washer, I LOVE it ...except....it broke after just 6 weeks! It started with the final spin not spinning the clothes out long enough, so they were still soak and wet, then the other night it took forever to finish washing like 1 hour or more! then it stopped and acted like it was a new wash so I pressed start like it told me too....the cycle repeated itself and didn't fully spin out the clothes. then, I went to put them in the dryer (I have the matching dryer) the washer kept turning it self on, no matter how many times I'd hit the cancel button, it just kept turning on every time I opened or closed the dryer door! now, tonight, it won't even turn on....what a shame...glad it's still under warranty. has this happened to anyone else? I think it's the computer (brain)
Yes - the ECU is to blame, and is a common failure with this unit.
