Kenmore front load washer ,will not spin !!
Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting us to help you with this appliance question.

Does the water drain?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

water drains i think goes through all cycles , stops at spin

Ok Harry, If the water is draining as it should the problem will pertain to the door lock assembly, This is not likely telling the control it's locked which is stopping the machine going into the spin cycle.

Take the top off the machine by removing the 3 screws along the rear lip. Next open the door and take the screws out holding the lock in place, You can now replace the lock.

To purchase a new lock take the model number to a local sears center or a local appliance parts store to order the lock.

Mike i will run it again through the cycles to make sure it is draining , when it ran through the cycles door was locked, we have changed the pump!!


 

The door may be locked but there is a switch in there that tells the unit the door is locked.

There are 3 reasons why a machine wont spin, first is the machine is not draining, second is the lock switch is bad, 3rd the motor control board located screwed to the floor near the motor is bad.

Hi Mike Tried machine again ,I dont think it takes in enough water ,also it runs for a while (washing ) runs for a while ,then stops and beeps, I try again & get the same thing !

Do you see a error code on the display when it beeps? like F6? or E50? if the machine has no minute display is there a combination of lights lit or blinking?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Code is E10

Ok give me a moment to look that up please.
Ok E10 means the water is entering the machine too slowly, first shut the water off, Take the water lines off where they hook up to the back side of the machine, Next look inside the valve to make sure the screens are not clogged, If they are clean them out. If this fails to cure the problem then the valve likely has a build up of calcium, this means the valve will need to be replaced.
