Question about Kenmore 44042 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Machine won't fill. Lights are on but nothing happens.

I've been gone for a week and machine was fine before I left. I pulled knob out to start washing and nothing happens. I took out the soap dispenser and the right side of the back corner looks like it may be melted. When I take the dispenser out the wash light goes out and comes back on when closed.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

If you have pressed start or pulled out the knob of the cycle unit and nothing happens I would be checking the operation of the water inlet solenoid . If it is not getting power or it is not opening the valve to allow filling to commence there will be no further action of the machine until the tub is filled to the desired level.

From the closed position lift the lid of the washer about 2'' and listen for a distinct click. Then set lid back down and should hear another click just before it closes. The wire form hinge on left side of lid actuates the lid switch. Is it broken? Let me know.

The machine won't start... it's been working fine


You don't give the model or any info. If it is "older" chances are you need a new settings knob or can clean the contacts inside if you are capable of removing it. Other than that check the obvious like cord/plug, spin button, that type of thing.

Washing machine quits after filling


I believe you need a new belt. The weight of the water is to much for a loose belt that is connected to the agitator.
2. Make sure nothing is blocking the safety shut off located on the machine.
