Question about Kenmore 44102 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore front Loader 41729042990

Will not agitate or spin. Water will fill and drain. Control knob goes thru entire cycle. The motor does not seem to turn on. Are there any specs for a Motor -Siemens (950 rpm spin) so that I can do some testing on it? Can I use a service manual for a Kenmore front washer model #417.42142100 ,They are both Tumble action washers.
Thanks for any info in advance

    Forgot to mention. Motor on #417.42142100 is different. It is a Motor-Sole .

    Thanks for the info on the motor. Motor was tested and check out fine. Speed control board was also tested per supplied specs. All voltage and OHM test were as specified. Door latch lite comes on and the timer control advances.

    The control knob was replaced once before the service guy said there was a thooth missing on the cam. The only difference in what is happening now and before is the timer did not advance all the way thru the cycles. Could be the same problem . Any ideas would be helpful.

    Opps forgot to mention that the control knob advances thru the entire cycle now .. before it did not.

    Yes it is a brush motor. The brushes were inspected they looked a little worn but when bench tested it worked fine. Thanks for your input

    I have what sounds like the same issue, but when I run spin only with washer empty it works fine, when trying entire cycle with water the washer will not agitate or spin. No unusual sounds as it sounds just like it did when purchased ~4 years ago. Please help as we are having serious financial issues and I'm hoping I can fix this myself.

Goes thru agitate cycle then stops - no drain of water, no spin. Control dial does not advance but manual advance also not result in drain or spin. Position of dial on agitate area results in agitation.


If the drain pump is not operating correctly, the cycle will not continue. Also, sometimes the pump has something jammed in it, and may just need to be unclogged.

Model 23832 Spin cycle doesn't spin


I believe this is the direct drive model. Your clutch is slipping. There is a quick easy fix available that I have used in the past. Remove cabinet from washer. Make sure you know the easy way to do this... 2 screws on top back of washer and 2 holding control panel. cabinet tips toward from of unit and off. Real easy... Remove wire harness from motor under basket. Remove 3 screws holding motor to basket. Remove agitator inside basket. 1 screw holds it in place. Remove entire motor and shaft from unit. Clutch is attached to shaft on top of motor. Pinch spring to remove clean everything with alcohol. Insert #10 washer between cup and spring to give a little more tension. Replace and viola.... all should work well.

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.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

No spinning or agitating


If it has a mechanical timer switch, (the main control knob) that is possibly the culprit. The timer switch is basically the "brain" of this type of washer. I had this problem on a washer.

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

Kenmore 22956 top loader quit running after agite cycle


If the timer cycles your lid switch is ok.
most likely: motor Switch (on Motor), condenser next to motor, motor itself, or wiring going from the time to the switch,

It is probably cost efficient to replace the unit rather than trowing parts at it .
