SOURCE: repair front load washer
We've had that same problem since we bought ours 3 years ago...but it was intermittent, and we never knew when we'd get the spin-dry cycle to work. Sears made 10 service calls, and replaced everything in the machine except the motor and motor control board. Those two parts were ordered and delivered as a result of the 10th service call. Of course, when the service guy was here, the spin worked! After he left, the next load did not spin. Frustrated, I opened the front end and looked around. I had noticed how violently the drum shook while operating when the service guy was here, so I decided to see if the wiring harness from the motor might be loose where it plugs into another harness that must go to the motor control board. There was a definite tightening of that connection as I squeezed the two harness plugs together. (I tightly secured a plastic zip-tie around that connection to prevent it from vibrating loose again) Since then, I have had absolutely no problem with the washer. I called Sears and told them I had managed to solve this long-standing problem on my own, and how, and also told them to cancel the service call to install those parts I ordered, but to pick them up and reimburse me for them. (I never opened the two boxes that arrived) They did just that, and we finally have a washing machine we can rely upon to complete the wash like it's supposed to. It's been a very frustrating and expensive 3 years, but now all is well.

Replace the front bellow or front seal, as it may be called. It is an inner tube shaped rubber liner that seals between the front of the washer door and the front of the drum. The cost is about $35.00-$40.00 and you will need the kit as it includes the rubber spacers that are essential to doing the job. The job takes about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It is not hard, but it is dedious and requires some basic skills. Directions included in the kit are helpful. You can do an internet search for the part and many appliance parts shops will carry the part. Do a search for appliance parts in your area and see if they carry that part on line, or you can call them tomorrow. I imagine a pair of strong hands would help as you seperate the outer groove that goes into the drum lip, then replace the spring that holds it in place there.

a quart of water over the course of a cycle is pretty significant, other then trying to remove the fabric softener section looking for a blockage in the dispensor(which is basic and should be real evident ) theres not much more for you the consumer to look for.(or should you have to for that matter its why you bought a NEW appliance). As for the service , you've purchased a Whirlpool product, therefore you can call any whirlpool authorized Company out to service you dont need to wait for Sears!!!!!!!
