Question about Washing Machines
I recently acquired a used Kenmore Series 80 washing machine. I did 3 loads just fine and the 4th load started this.....it will agitate for 8-10 seconds and then pause for several minutes. It continues this process for the wash and rinse cycles....it will eventually drain and spin out.
WHen I initially hooked it up the water came gushing back out of the drain (that I finally figured out was a plastic piece designed to keep the water from coming back up was inadvertantly pushed down about 8 inches into the drain. But before I figured that out I put another drain hose from my last washer onto this washer and it had a smaller end on it so the water didn't come up out of the drain anymore......BUT on the 4th load the pressure expelling the water out of the washer was so great that it blew the drain hose off of the back of the washing machine!!!! Water gushing all over the floor and the basement!!!!)
The question ... is there a sensor that could have gotten messed up when the wrong size of drain hose was on the washer? And would it still be acting that way even though I have the proper drain hose on there and it is draining properly now?
Ok that does sound like the solution when it gaps or pauses in different cycles, you can order a timer with a model number here. www.apdepot.com Under keyword timer it shows 51 different timers for a kenmore.

No, the most is a damaged pump, does it pause in agitation or just spin? I would check the lid switch and timer.
