If front loader washer quit spinning, check the wax motor switch. You can make a temporary fix by providing a short on the door lock contact. The Kenmore 417.29042992 front load washer provides a test connector that's readily accessible behind the front lower panel. Insert a wire between connector pins 1 and 2 (red and white/red color wires) and your washer should spin during the spin cycle. Hopes this helps.

SOURCE: The door on my front end Whirpool Duet Washer will not open?

Plug off the mains. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. There is a drain hose here, disconnect & drain out. There could be a lot of water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
For some front loader models after removing the panel, the filter is in the compartment having the white screw able lid. The big hose from the bottom of your tub leads to this compartment.

For the door to unlock, press & hold 'end of cycle' for 3 seconds, power shd be on for this, try door after 2 minutes. Your machine may not open if there is water inside, so first drain.

I have a whirpool energy star washer and the door is stuck in lock position. The lights that are on are spin and door lock


If you remove the bottom panel under the door, you can see a lever or tab that will allow you to open the door. Before you do that though, there is a drain plug that is visible. Remove the plug and get ready for WATER to come out. Have towels or wet vacuum cleaner ready. There will be a filter trap that is in the drain. Clean it out too.

Why is my duet whirpool washer door not cycling through. It seems locked open


Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism. I found this at the Appliance Guru website.

There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated. The machine works except advancing to the spin cycle and this signifies that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the issue.

Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.

Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.

My Whirlpool Duet washer was out of balance and almost fell over during the spin cycle. The washer was shaking and the front door came open during the spin cycle. Now the front door will not latch and stay...


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

After pulling the manual door release by removing the bottom door panel you are able to add 1 cap (1 tbsp) of liquid cooking oil to the water. The cooking oil will greatly reduce the amount of suds so you can complete the cycle.

Washer load became imbalanced and forced door open, now cannot close door, lock stuck and washer will not run


Perhaps you have to change your lock, this is a sensitive point & will affect the smooth operation of your machine. Re. the inbalance, you hv to screw up & lock the front 2 legs (with check nut), adjust the front legs (screwed up) only to see if the machine does not move during wash/spin.
