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.

@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!

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?

@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.
