    Why does the washer stop during the spin cycle?
    For model number WFW8300SW04
    Hi Becky, Thank you for your question. If the washer stops during the spin cycle, the belt may be loose or broken. If it is you will need to tighten or replace it. Also, there may be an issue with the door lock latch. Make sure the strike is connecting to the door lock latch. If it is not connecting correctly this may cause the washer to stop prematurely. Be sure to check the lock itself to make sure it is not malfunctioning. You will need to test the part with a multi-meter. Here is a link to one of our videos on YouTube that you may use as a general reference on how to use one, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWC44fHn0As. We hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    My washer doesn't seem to drain and stops before the spin cycle and seems to make a low grind noise when supposedly draining. Would this be the pump or what?
    For model number WFW8300SW04
    Hello Pat, Thank you for the question. Normally this is an indication the Drain Pump is defective or there is something obstructing it. We suggest removing and cleaning the pump, if the issue persists, it will need to be replaced. We hope this helps!

    I have taken the back cover off, my belt looks fine. When i spin the pulley, the drum (basket) does not spin free, it makes a horrendous scraping sound. I am not sure what else it could be. Any ideas? Thank you

      Water leak from bottom of door.
      I discovered water leaking from the bottom of the door on our Kenmore front load washer. I did a little self diagnosis from the internet and found that this seems to be a common problem for front load Kenmore washers and that the ususal suspect is the large rubbery bellows. I examined the bellows on my washer and although I didn't find anything wrong with it, I couldn't find any other likely causes. I shopped around and found PartSelect to be the cheapest for the replacement part. Removal is easy by removing the lower front panel with three small screws on the bottom front, then remove the very top panel and then the top front control panel and finally the door panel. the bellows are actually held in place with a spring loop on the outer and a screw tightener on the inner, both are fairly easy to remove and the bellows comes right off. For installation my best advice is to lube the bellows with a small amount of dishwashing soap in the groove that fits on the washer tub. This will help it slide into place and enables a small amount of sliding fine tuning once it is on. From there it is just a reverse of the removal.

      Door latch module was defective
      This model is a front-loading washer. The spring loaded retainer for the front of the boot must be removed, then the boot can moved to the side exposing the module. Remove the two screws holding the model, pull the model out, remove the three electrical plugs, then reverse this procedure to install new module.
