@Waterfront, Read my post. In my case it was the silliest thing. After 15 years of faithful service a connector came loose. It was the main to motor board cable connector.

Unplug the washer and remove the motor control module. Check seating on the connectors. FYI they're card edge like the old school video game cartidges. Also like the old school cartridges the can be rehabbed. Get some emery boards, alcohol, swabs, silicone grease and silicone caulking.

Clean the contacts on the board with alcohol and swab. GENTLY sand them with the beige side of the Emery board. Clean again with alcohol and swab. Seal with silicone grease. Bond the connector in place with a dollup of caulking on both (left and right) sides. Doing the same for the motor connector wouldn't hurt, that's what I did. It will take you an afternoon but can't hurt.

BTW, you can also do that on the door switch latch module. Its super easy. For the silver contact points I use the beige side of the Emery board as I described before. For the brass connections I use the brown side and bear down to remove the oxidation. Goop with silicone grease and reassemble.

I have a Kenmore front load washer 417 series and it also starts to fill, stops, fills, stops, and then the start button blinks. After opening and closing and pressing start numerous times, it clicks and the start button will blink rapidly. A couple slams later, the washer will start. If I do another wash immediately after the cycle completes, it will work normally.

If I leave the washer for 10 minutes after the cycle completes, I get the same start stop.

Replace pressure switch, replaced main control board, and door switch. Cleaned the drain and blew through the pressure switch hose. Checked wires.

A mystery since once I get it started, it goes through the cycle completely.

Any other thoughts?

@Greg

I'm having the same issue. Break out the trobleshooting guide. Run the diagnostic test and see what error code comes back. If your drain pump starts up but quits after 3 seconds, I'll bet you get error code 59.

Be advised, you can easily mistake the error for 95 if your washer has only LEDs. If so, read the bank of LEDs as the FIRST number and the start light as the SECOND number.

From there, break out a multimeter and check the items listed in step 12. Basically any code in the 50s will boil down to bearings, motor (or wiring to it but you already covered that) or motor speed control board. Good luck!

Having the same problem... Replaced door latch, clipped and redid the blue wire, inlet valves seem fine, pump works perfectly, no bad bearings...Stumped and about to go for a control board. Any help is appreciated.

It is a kinked blue wire at the zip tie. Remove the back panel and locate the blue wires leading to the motor at the lower right side. Clip the zip ties, and you will see a kink in one. Cut at the kink and use a butt connector to reconnect. Wrap with electrical tape and secure it away from the motor with another zip tie but don't tie it too tight or it will happen again. Good luck.

I took the back cover off and didn't see any broken or kinked wires. The washer turns on for a few seconds then stops in the middle of the cycle. It doesn't matter what setting is chosen. The washer begins to fill with water and starts to spin so it doesn't seem like a water or motor issue. It doesn't seem like a broken wire but we replaced the control board and water inlet valve like the recommendations for the error code suggested.

I see this is an old post but maybe it can still help someone. After replacing numerous parts on my 2 year old Frigidaire affinity. I took the back off and right next to the motor there is a black plug with 2 blue wires going into it. UNPLUG YOUR WASHER. One of the wires looked as if it had been kinked. There was a small white spot where the plastic had stretched. I unplugged the connector and pulled on the wire and sure enough the casing broke in half. The wire had broken inside the casing. You can repair this with a butt connector, be sure to tape up the butt connector after the repair. Plug the connector back in. And I'll bet your washer will work again. Good luck
