Question about Kenmore 44042 Front Load Washer
Our Kenmore 44042 Front loader has just stopped spinning.
My wife had an unbalanced load a couple of days ago and now it has stopped the Final Spin cycle.
Tried it on Fast and Normal settings and the same thing happens..
It drains the water out just fine, does the back and forth low speed tumbling but then when it is supposed to rev up, you can hear it whine a little and it starts turning but then slows down and does the back and forth tumbling again. I am halfway handy with a wrench/screwdriver and am happy to get it apart if anyone has a clue.
The front load washers are supported by springs on the top and shocks on the bottom. More than likely you broke a spring on the top or cracked one of the shock mounts which causes and unbalanced load all the time. Will it go through a spin cycle with no clothes is it?
