The model number that you submitted (417.97042700) is for a dryer instead of a washer. I recommend that you recheck that model number and reply with an update is the information below does not help.

I provided a partial wiring diagram in the image below that shows the circuit through the door locked lamp and the door latch motor. Since the light is turning on, it is apparent that the pull switch is working properly since the circuit traced in red is complete. The door lock coil is in a parallel circuit with the lock light. The door lock coil circuit is traced in blue. It should get voltage as soon as the lock light turns on.

Part of the door switch circuit is traced in green. The water valves and other components (including the motor) will not get voltage unless the door switch is "closed" to allow current to pass through that switch.

Your symptoms suggest that you have a door lock/switch component failure or a wiring failure in that circuit. You can unplug the washer and remove the top panel and the bottom front service panel to check the wiring connections on these components. The second image below shows how to remove the bottom front service panel. You can remove screws on the back of the top panel to remove it. If the wiring connections are okay, then you may be able to fix this problem by replacing the door lock/switch assembly. You could have a timer problem if replacing the door lock assembly does not fix the problem.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

This advice is based on a common type of Kenmore front load washer like the one that you are describing. If you need more help, reply with a model number (after rechecking it) and additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

How do I align the drum on the back of the dryer to replace the screws?

A:

On something like this I recommend removing the drum. The drum shaft support is what holds up the back of the drum. It will be easier to pull the complete drum out & align the holes for the screws. You may also consider replacing the rear drum support assembly while you have the unit taken apart.

Please see the images provided explaining how to remove the dryer drum & access the rear support assembly, part number 5303281153.

Use a putty knife to release the clips between the front & top panels. Lift the top up to access the front panel screws.

Remember to disconnect power before attempting repairs.

I had this same problem and tried to fix it this way as well - this is the hard way. The easiest and best way is to first remove the drum entirely. Behind the drum on the rear panel of the dryer is a rotator shaft which should just pull right out. Once everything is out you can screw everything together easily - then slide the drum back in and align the rotator shaft back into the rear panel - - done! See the link below - this is for a GE dryer but the premise is the same and it has a good picture of the screen, drum and rotator shaft all put together.
