Hi board,

I am in desperate advice on this issue. I have a Kenmore front load washer. Model 417.42142100. It is a little less than 3 years old. The washer will run its cycle but will always leave the clothes very wet at the end. After hours of watching the cycles I realized that it wasn't going into its high speed final spin. I just replaced the pump, it was making an awefull sound, but that didn't seem to help. The washer will agitate, and tumble the clothes, so I am certain that the motor and belts are fine.

Thanks in advance for your help.

** I just replaced the pump**

And the washer is draining ok? The washer must drain out ok before it will attempt to spin.

**I realized that it wasn't going into its high speed final spin**

Common trouble makers are motor, motor control board, timer, not draining the water....should be a tech sheet inside the washer inside an envelope with testing procedures for checking to see why the high speed spin in not kicking in.

Thanks for the quick post. Yes, I replace the pump due to it not draining. Actually it was more the valve on the pump was allowing the drain water to flow back into the system that prompted me to replace it. But now it appears the water is draining properly.

Also as a side note. I have been able to get the washer to go into a high speed spin during the first rinse cycle. It is infrequent, only happening a few times, but it will never do a final spin at the end of the full cycle.
