Model KUD101TJ - WASH CYCLE DOES NOT ENGAGE

WASHER POWERS UP, BUT WAHCYCLE WILL NOT ENGAGE

Posted by on

  • bweisbord Jan 24, 2009

    The panel lights up correctly when I push the buttons.  The washer does not fill with water.  We think it broke when we accidentally started the washer with the water service to the house turned off.  


    Our model # is kud101tjbl0. Thanks for helping!

Hi OHG55,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: WASHER POWERS UP, BUT WAHCYCLE WILL NOT ENGAGE

Does it fill with water? If not then you have a bad solenoid valve. If it does then it's either a bad control board or a bad motor. I don't recomend these repairs for the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman. If it has a few years on it then perhaps it's time to compare the costs of repair verses replacement.

Samsung DMT300RFW Builtin Dishwasher will not run past wash cycle. I start it and it fills and the wash cycle starts but won't cycle past the wash cycle. No error codes.


Don't know enough from your description. Does the pump hum, or empty the washer? There's a strainer under the lower washer arm that may be plugged. If the pump doesn't engage at all, my first thought would be the timer portion of the control board. I'd guess the control board would run about $125 or so.

Kenmore model 23832100 washer will not spin in rinse cycle kenmore model 23832100 washer fills, agitates, and drains, but will not spin. Makes noise after draining. BUT if I manually turn off the machine...


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Agitator barely moves during wash cycle, spin cycle is fine, agitator will engage during wash cycle if I apply pressure by pressing down on the top.


This is usually the agitator dogs have worn out or broke. These are very inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the proper inspecting and replacement of these parts. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Washer souds like trying to engage but won't


If the motor hums and will not pump out or spin, the motor is bad. It reverses direction and the reverse windings appear to be burned out.

Washer won't drain and clothes stay soaked


Can you give me a model and brand name. Does the washer drain at any time during the wash cycle?
Will it go into a spin at all in any setting? heavy duty, normal and delicate cycle? is water not draining?

Washer powers down during wash cycles


It is most likely a very slow fill problem ,either the cold or hot water supply is restricted and the machine cannot sense the right water temp. and will shut down .

Machine cannot wash properly with a small amount of water.

Ckeck ,the screens in the water valve or at the hoses at the top where the faucets are ,clean them or replace them but never leave them out .
