My front loader died, it won't power up. We checked breaker, unplugged and plugged it in. We bought it used and it's been a good one. I don't even see where Kenmore makes a front loader now. Sears website has lots of other brands but only top loaders for Kenmore.

The select buttons had gotten harder to press, I guess it is just worn out. I looked on repair clinic to see most common problems and one was the door switch and it was over 119.00 I can't see putting that into it. --216.126.xx.xxx

A lot of times itís one of the two boards (around $200 each). Front loaders donít last nearly as long as direct drive top loaders. --73.177.xxx.xx

Get a used one from Habitat or the thrift store. Call a scrapper to take away the old one. --24.180.xx.xx

Test the power through the machine. May be a blown fusable link or something like that.

The switch is a red herring. --157.131.xxx.xxx

A generic door switch cost under $24, some even less. --47.156.xx.xx

The top loader door switch is very easy to bypass, I am thinking the front loader will be hidden behind the rubber boot which has to be removed to do anything - once you remount one it gets easier. I like the top load machines. --76.190.xxx.xxx

Most front load washing are designed to break where the Spider which holds the stainless steel is made of cheap white metal where the weaker metal breaks. Other than trying remedies on You Tube it may have to taken to scrap metal recycling place. Most machines are made by Samsung and LG for sears. If wanted a really good machine but more expensive buy a commercial grade machine made by Huebsch or Speed Queen without a coin box. A roll of dice is Facebook market place where people sell used machines. In the house picked up a Samsung with a base for free where fixed by replacing the spider assembly and front door gasket which costed around $300 dollars Cdn. It was a labour intensive process where have to take the entire machine apart than reassemble. Most machines the spider assembly is broken where can tell as the drum moves or is uneven when drum is rotated. There should be no play in the drum. --68.69.xxx.xxx
