Kenmore Front Load Washer Troubleshooting

A broken washing machine will make your home a complete mess. It needs to be repaired as soon as possible to allow everything to function properly. If your front – load washing machine is no longer working, there is probably a problem with the draining, the mechanism of the door, or it just won’t start. What you need to do is determine the real problem and then buy the broken parts and replace them. If you can’t do it alone ask for a help from a professional or from a friend. There are many online retailers that sell washing machine parts.

The Electronic Control Board

If the machine won’t start, consider checking the main electronic control board. If that is the real problem with the washing machine it is best for you to replace the whole part. It can be fixed, but you need to be an electrician who is very good at their job to fix the problems. So, if you can’t fix it buy a new electronic control board online and replace it immediately.

The Door Won’t Lock Or Unlock

Many people have problems with the doors of their washing machines. They find it really hard to open or close. As you can assume, this problem can be fixed but only if you know how to do it. There is a locking mechanism that allows the door to open and close. If the door can’t perform these operations, it means that there is a problem with the mechanism. You can replace the mechanism or the whole door. But sometimes there is no need to throw away the door.

Draining Problems

In case there are draining problems, you need to check the drain pump that removes the water from the washer. The drain pump is part of the washing machine that has an expiration date and needs to be replaced from time to time. sometimes there is no need to replace the whole pump. Simply take it out and clean it by cleaning all the dirt that’s accumulated on the inside and fix the problems with the cables. If it cannot be fixed, it is time to buy a new one.

Motor Control Board

This is a part in a front – load washer that is responsible for controlling the speed of the motor as well as the spinning actions that the motor performs. So, if you notice that the motor is not working, the whole motor control board must be replaced.
