Question about Washing Machines
My Kenmore #44082 recently began to not spin when supposed to. Ran a diagnostic check and received the following error code: E47 - Board thinks the door PTC circuit is open in spin. After a great deal of research online, I find that the door lock assembly is probably bad. Evidently, this is quite a common problem in this Kenmore model. We would like to try this fix on our own as it appears the part should run only about $50 or so. Problem is, we have no idea how to access the door lock assembly. Can anyone give us detailed, step by step instructions and save us at least $200? Thanks!
Easy repair, somply open the door, and l;ook behind the rubber boot, youll see a metal band holding it to the fornt of the machins( spring loaded at very bottom) roll the "clamp"wire off andremoveth righthand side of the boot, youll need to unscrew trhe 2 phillips screws holding the latch assy on nad it will slide right put, probly 3 connectors( youll have enough wire to almost pull all the way out.. replace with the new latch(wires only plug into correct spots, you cant do it wrong). resecure the latch and roll the rubber boot back over the front lip. rescuring the metal clamp may take a little patience, but get a third hand if available.. starting at top strecth over both sides and snap spring over the bottom. easy repair take youtime youll be fine!!
