Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

417.43142200 My Kenmore front loader fills with water & then stops. I called in a technician however the wiring diagram had mysteriously disappeared from the brown envelope. I went to the sears web site & I can get any of the other three diagrams (which I already have) but the wiring diagram fails to load. Can I get it anywhere else online? I have searched & cant find it Thanks Liz

If the "door lock" light is not on, the motor won't engage. These are notorious for door lock failures. However, if the door IS locking, and you have no agitate OR spin, you'll need to go a bit deeper. ---> With the front panel removed, turn the timer to Regular wash and allow it to fill. Then, with a volt stick (google it), probe the wire harness that goes to the motor. If the tip glows, you know you are getting power to the motor, but it is not responding to it. A new motor and motor controller is the fix for that. If the probe does NOT glow, the controller isn't sending power to the motor. (BTW, the motor controller is the 6" X 8" computer box in the back right corner)Why? Using your volt stick, probe the wire harness that comes FROM the timer into the controller. If it glows, you know the timer is TRYING to power up the controller but the controller isn't responding... back to changing out the motor and controller. If the probe does NOT glow, you know the timer is not sending power to the controller. In that case, it would be a defective timer. Replace it and all is well in the world. I'll warn you that a timer is much more difficult to replace than you'd think... AND I've only seen 1 failed timer since working on these. Most likely a failed door lock.

My Kenmore Washer 110.92597200 will not stop filling which causes water to overflow drum onto floor. It does not seem to respond to Water Level setting.

top loader machines have a small tube running up to the sensor that fills with water and affects the level settings
check that it is not a problem with the inlet solenoid not shutting of the water
call a service technician

Kenmore top loader mod. 110 29522801 does not run after filling with water. The lid switch could be bad. Are there other problems that should be addressed?

if the unit is filling with water it is not the lid switch because it will not fill with water if the lid is open
problem areas are the water level switch is not energizing the wash cycle as well as switching off the incoming water
if it is stopping the water but nothing else , have a technician check the program board

Kenmore Elite front loader has hot and cold water reversed

I assume you verified the hoses are not crossed at the back of the machine??


A better troubleshooting method is to call for a cycle of hot water and check that the proper solenoid on the water valve is being sent the signal. If it is, the water valve should be replaced.

Kenmore front loader washing machine very long wash cycle

You need to replace your cold water, inlet valve.

Unplug the machine from the power source. Disconnect cold water hose. remove the top cover of the machine. You will see the cold inlet valve/solenoide where the hose fits.

Take note of where the wiring goes. You can get the part from your appliance parts outlet.

Refit, and you should be right to go.

Good Luck.

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Won't fill w/ water, Kenmore 3.5 Super Capacity Front Loader

The pressure switch is likely to blame. Change it.

Kenmore front loader trouble

If it is shutting off after a few seconds is the washer filling with water. If not you may need a water valve. If it fills with water then stops you may have a bad control and $350.00 is not really to bad for that repair. Besides if he is wrong he is stuck with the part not you. If he is correct then your washer is fixed and $350 is alot better than $1200.00 for a new one, so check that water and good luck to you. Mike
