KENMORE TOP LOAD WASHER - MODEL # 11022422100

Hi I have a Kenmore top load washer , it's about 5 years old the model # is 11022422100. We had a power surge in the neighborhood and all the power went out, while the washer was running. After the power came back on we tried to turn on the washer but it wouldn't drain. The washer fills with water , spins and when it is suppoesed to drain it just shuts down.Theres no sound at all. I checked the pump and it spins freely. The motor shaft rod also spins the propelor freely. When I turn it on now the dial still spins and when it gets to the postion where its supposed to drain it stops. Could this be something with the control panel. I was also told it could possibly be the motor itself or the drive belt, but I'm not sure where the drive belt is. I'm am pretty sure it would be something electrical because of the power surge.
Thanks

Paul

    Hi Doc

    Thanks again for the reply

    Yes the water did drain when I tipped it to at the pump and motor

  • paulyes Oct 05, 2008

    Hi Doc

    The water that drains is just excess water in the hose , the thing is that this all happened when we had a power surge , so wouldn't it be the control panel, the motor or one of the components with them. The pump propelor spins freely.

    Thanks

How do i find the year of my sears washer


Your Kenmore is a Whirlpool.

Therefore, you need the serial number to determine the year. The second digit in the serial number is the year code.

You can find the lookup table here:

My washer stops after washing. It won't drain or spin. What is the problem?


Whats your washer brand name. Is it top load or front load. The model number. It all depend on your machine model.

If it is KENMORE or Whirlpool top load more than 6 years old, then most likely it is your door switch. It is straight forward fix and cheap.

Gary asks kenmore model 110.96583120 runs for 10


.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

Kenmore top load washer won't drain


Could be the pump itself or the belt driving it... many of the older type washers run the pump off of a drive belt and many of these pumps get clogged with material so that they do not pump... usually, you can unbolt the pump and seperate the pump casing to access the impellor and clean out the insides.. As always.. be certain to unplug the washer first..
Hope this helps

F Code for the Kenmore Elite he4t Front Load Washer (3 years old)


Hi! ricksmith
What is the first three digits of the model number.
The he4t I have reference to does not have a "F" code error. Most of the codes are two digit, PF, F1 to F9 etc.
You could try: Pressing Pause/Cancel two times to clear code. As well as unplug for 20 seconds. Do you have power fluctuations in your area.

F 70 code on the Kenmore elete smartheat HE4


hello Whgispers42,
Huuum At your service!

You said,
We frequently have to start the dryer several times during one load. The dryer will run fine for a while then all the sudden give 3 beeps and then the F 70 code. Sometimes when you go to start the dryer you can press power and the panel will light up for about 3 - 5 seconds and then shut off again, this will happen several times in a row. We have been unable to solve this issue ourselves and are becoming very frustrated since this washer/dryer set are less than a year old. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. (If we are unable to fix this problem soon, it is likely that the dryer will make a sudden leap from the second floor window to the backyard)


Try this first!!
This is an error code.

This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not help, you said the machine is not one year old.
All appliances have a 1 -year warranty and the service and parts are free for that first year!
I hope you succeed with my recommendations.
Please contact me with your progress1

Bless You
