Question about Kenmore 44102 Front Load Washer

Front load washer wont spin

Every thing work but no spin was told to change control board and did but same thing happens (fills agitates drains but no spin) need help thanks I have a Kenmore front load washer which I think is made by Frigidaire. It goes through the wash cycle correctly but does not do the high speed spin at the end. The was drains completely and it also does the back and forth motion at the very end of the cycle. It does this for ALL cycles (rinse and spin, normal, quick, etc.). The pump was very noisy so I replaced it hoping that would solve the problem but it didn't. I also replaced the motor control board (part 134743500) but that didn't help either. It has been mentioned that the door latch could be bad and can keep it from spinning. Is that true for front loading machines as well as top loaders????

Yes. the solinoid or wax motor (depending on which switch you have) has fail and is not telling control that the door is locked. replacing the switch will fix it

My ATF6000ES Front Loading washer runs on any cycle for about 5 minutes then stops, and the display resets to the start and nothing more happens. Got an E48 code and ran "test 7" and the tub did not

Hello Nick Jensen, thanks for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of "E48" and you have changed the control board with the problem continuing to be present. An "E48" error code could be a possible problem with your door lock assembly, motor control board, or control panel. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Agitator does not work

Your motor runs in forward and reverse...the spin is one way and the agitate is the other... that direction has failed. Replace the motor...

Front loader wont agitate or spin, but it fills with water and pumps water out

likely the lid switch is bad - if not the ECU/timer is.

Will not go in to spin cycle

Remove agitator (it will pop off when pried) then you will find your answer. Mine was a broken tub collar to shaft.

My washer wont spin

Your symptoms that indicates a broken motor coupler. If your washer will drain and fill but has not agitation action or spinning action that would indicate a broken motor coupler. The motor coupler links the drive motor to the transmission.

Washer will fill, drain, and run a complete cycle but will not agitate or spin

sounds like the motor control board is bad. you could test the motor to see if it ohms out ok, the diagram has the readings. The diagram should be on the side panel (inside the cabinet) on the lt side in a brown envelope.

Wont spin or agitate

Not sure what you mean? if you have normal wash action then it is agitating in the wash cycle.  Otherwise if it doesn't agitate or spin but does fill with water then your motor or motor control board is bad.

Front load washer wont spin

Open the rear panel and look for a broken belt and does the motor spins. In case motor doesn't spin, check on its tags for 115/220V. Let me know with your results,for further assistance if will be needed. Good luck!
