Hello, remove the panel below the door by removing the 3 screws under the lower lip. inside this panel you will find the tech sheet which will tell you how to run the diagnostic cycle. This in turn will tell you what is wrong with your washer. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Kenmore front loading spin noise small vibration

It is probably the bearings on the rear of the wash tub. There have been multiple issues with the bearings. Try rplacing the bearings and the drive belt. I also have a 417 that I've had for almost 10 years.. I've not have a problem yet but it is slightly louder on spinning than it was when it was new. I did some research and found out about the bearings.

417 430 42200 Front load Kenmore washing machine The water does not drain

Sounds like the pump is clogged or not working. Check the pump on the bottom of the machine. You can see the pump by removing the back panel for access. If you have missing socks or other small items check for a blockage in the pump.
If you set the dryer to spin you should hear the pump groaning if it is blocked.

Hi. from my research, these machines will have issues that are frequent that deal with the drainage system and motor control as well. the control boards are average in their respective categories but, overall, these units will preform well during the short life span.

Washer will not do a spin cycle for rinse or end of cycle

you can check two things,. One is, is the belt broken or stretched, the other is the motor, is the motor turning if the motor is turning then replace the belt. If the motor is not turning replace the motor.
