Kenmore Front Loader-Doesnt Aggitate nor Spin

I have a Kenmore Front Loader 44102 that is 3 days outside of its year warranty. It fills with water but then nothing happens. It does not start washing and when I turn it to the final spin, it drains the water, then just sits there. It makes a slight humming noise, but that is about it. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!

Fws445rf1 washer didnt stop filling and flooded my apt and it doesnt aggitate when it is washing,the whole thing just spins inside instead of moving back and forth,what are the most likely reasons for...

if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine.
when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill.
it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate!
my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!

Washer fill or drain but does not spin

It's not supposed to spin during water fill and draining, if I understand your post.

Debris can be in the fill valve, jamming it open a little. You can't always take them apart. Turn the water off at the faucet to check. Get new hoses, the filters in the old ones must be bad, and old hoses can blow.

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

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
