Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Final spin speed

I have a Kenmore 417.43142200 front load washer. Purchased the unit used about a year ago. A few days ago I went to dry a washed load and it was still soaking wet. Thought maybe it was just a fluke so I switched to final spin to get rid of some more water but the washer will not spin on high speed. It tumbles and spins at normal speed as normal, just no high speed. What kind of options am I looking at here? I consider myself somewhat handy with these types of things so if I knew what the problem was I would like to try and repair it. Just having a hard time figuring out what the exact culprit is. Any info would be greatly appreciated. We are a family of 6 and wringing clothes out by hand is getting old fast. Thank you.

    Removed the front panel lastnight and checked the trap in the drain line as was suggested for someone with a similar problem. Removed a fistfull of change along with some other assorted items. Hooked back up and machine is running good as new. Thanks a million!!!

Sounds like the door lock. It will not advance to spin if it thinks the door is open. There is a instruction sheet inside the unit behind the lower panel. That will give the error codes for the flashing lights.

I had exactly the same problem a few years ago. I thought it was a leak from an oil seal and had technicians out. The problem was that I used the wrong washing powder. Find out from the manufacturer what washing powder you need to use and use only that.

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!


Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
