Question about Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer
The indicated symptom signifies a faulty door lock and switch assembly. It is a safety feature of the washer not to advance to the spin cycle should the door lock is not activated to prevent injury due to accidental opening the washer door during a high speed spin. Check the wiring connections of the door lock and switch assembly to the main control board and the door lock and switch assembly itself. Make sure the connections are good and snug fit. Disconnect power to the machine prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Access to the main control board requires the removal of the top and the console. Remove the top panel by removing the screws attaching it to the rear of the washer then slide it rearward and off.
Pull the dispenser drawer out then push the locking tab to release it an pull the drawer completely out. Once the drawer is out, remove the 3 screws from the opening left by the drawer including the screws attaching the top of the console to the washer cabinet.
Disconnect the console wiring harness connection then lift the console and flip it forward to detach it from the cabinet. Disconnect wiring harness connections from the console then clean the connectors and terminals to ensure a good and snug fit connection. This will eliminate the possibility of loose wiring harness connection that may cause the malfunctioning of the door lock.
