    There are no error codes. I had Sears come out and they wanted to change the door latch mechanism. I went ahead and did so and get the same results.

Are you getting any codes?
This is the central control unit sending messages to the motor control unit to make speed adjustments.
Could be from loose wire connections, loose,dirty or corroded ribbon connections or a defective CCU or MCU board.
Unplu the machine.
Remove the front panel and the top panel to access your control boards and check all connections.
Remove them and re-install them.
Look for a smashed or broken wire.

I just replaced one of the suspension springs in our Kenmore 417 frontload washer. When I turned the washer back on and tried to run a load, it will run for about 5 seconds then stop for about a minute...


can you give me some explanation on what you did to replace the spring?. did you have to take the washer apart?. check the wire. maybe you forgot or did not plug all the way a connector. or came apart. my impression is that something came loose and the computer is not detecting a connection.

Top loading Kenmore washer runs for a few seconds then shuts off


It's quite possible, however,

If you're mechanically inclined, I'd check the motor, transmission and pump first.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers and it's trouble-shooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

See the following for how to pull the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission to check them all.

My front load Kenmore washer 44082 does not start. just buzzes and displays ERR.


LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

Washer aggitate for 20 seconds then stops, starts


This could be your control switch. Remove the front cover at the top that has the dials on. Check main switch unit, it probably needs to be rebuilt, about $35 or installed new.

I own a kenmore top loading machine model number 110 10 amp 60 hertz 120 volts the machine gets power and runs but the big control knob that controls the diffrent cycles is running only about 20 seconds...


sounds like you should replace timer (big control) timer motor is part of timer. Is timer knob speeding thru cycle that fast or just start/stop.
110 is manufacturer code for whirlpool, number after decimal is model number. tech sheet avail inside console by unsnapping left and right console covers and removing hidden screw at front bottom corners, pull forward slightly then fold console back (hinged at rear top).
