Question about Kenmore 44042 Front Load Washer

Spins during cycle, but doesn't fully drain and no final spin

We have owned this (Model 417.441525400) for less than 2 1/4 years.  Fine yesterday, but doesn't drain fully and no final spin.  I have to wring everything out by hand.  Any ideas before my husband rips it apart?

Bizzy, as long as you are satisfied that the pump is ok, try putting it into a diag mode and see if we can come up with an error code.  First wake up the machine by pressing any button, then within 5 seconds press and hold the two greyed out buttons on the right  (pause and start cancel). As long as you hold those 2 buttons in, the error code should be flashing. Keep holding them in. Now you will have to count the times the 5 leds on the right flash. When they stop, count the times the start button flashes.  This will give you the code.  Post back here with the results and we'll see if we can come up with a code..Catriver

Cold water pours in during final spin

No - the timer is the likely suspect.

Cold water pours in during final spin

There is something clogging your pump, dismantle it to clear it. Plug off the wall socket mains first.

Spin Cycle

you can check the direct drive coupling between the motor and the transmission, if the coupling is good and not broken then you have a transmission problem
