I have a Kenmore Front Loader 44102 that is 3 days outside of its year warranty. It fills with water but then nothing happens. It does not start washing and when I turn it to the final spin, it drains the water, then just sits there. It makes a slight humming noise, but that is about it.
Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!

if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine. when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill. it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate! my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!
Debris can be in the fill valve, jamming it open a little. You can't always take them apart. Turn the water off at the faucet to check. Get new hoses, the filters in the old ones must be bad, and old hoses can blow.
If it is shutting off after a few seconds is the washer filling with water. If not you may need a water valve. If it fills with water then stops you may have a bad control and $350.00 is not really to bad for that repair. Besides if he is wrong he is stuck with the part not you. If he is correct then your washer is fixed and $350 is alot better than $1200.00 for a new one, so check that water and good luck to you. Mike
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
remove motor, check carbon brushs,replace if short,the manual may help.motors that have brushs are the principle,sole motor is Italian,yours is German,anyway thats beside the point ,its the brushs.buy ,eire
