Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
I?m stuck, and desperately need help. The washer completes wash cycles, but never spins. After performing the diagnostic test from the washer tech data sheet, I get error code E43 (Control Board problem) the washer does spin in the diagnostic test. I ordered a new control board, replaced it, same result. I then ordered the speed control board, same result. I have performed a continuity check on every wire in the washer, both vacuum tubes are clear; the pump is clear and pumps the water out. One of the Shock Absorber, air, stabilizers is broken (on back order until the end of the month) should be here the 31st. Any ideas ???? Thanks in advance De_fender
It's a bad wax motor inside the door latch. The diagnostics are buggy and do not test it properly. It should measure about 1.5K ohms, and when 120 VAC is applied to it, it should extend in about a minute. Part number 12002535 is $10 to $15.

Does the washer was loaded when you make the diagnnostic test ?

Same problem here too. My washer is only 18 months old. I have only gotten so far as to get the error code, which is a 43.
Should I go through the Diagostic test and see if the machine spins?
I am a total amateur here, but I refuse to pay a repair person to come out for an 18 month old washer. Ugh.
