Question about Washing Machines
I have a super capacity 3.5 Kenmore front loading washer. It will go through the cycles fine untill it goes to spin, and will not spin. It drains fine, and then turns off (beeps 3x) I read about it possibly being the door, the door shuts and not only does the door shut it will lock when cycle is started. Inccidently the washer will rotate, and aggitate fine, so the belt (if there is one on this model) is working fine. Any suggestions, I am an IT guy not a appliance guy...
Replace your door lock switch it will run fine till you git to final spin then stops if i not missing the point the model no. will start with a 417 even door locks the switch is bad

If your machine does not enter the final (high-speed) spin, the door lock is bad. Although the door locks at the beginning of the cycle, a second lock is required before the high speed spin begins. The problem is the second lock mechanism. The door lock should cost <$50 and can be replaced by removing the outside portion of the door seal, 2 screws, and a few wires (inside the door, behind the seal).
