Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore series 80 washing machine

Mine fills the water fine and never starts the agitating cycle. If I manually move the dial to spin, it spins the water out. For some reason, I cannot get it to agitate. My wife says she can hear a clicking noise when it should be agitating.

    I was able to run the washing machine on th epermanent press cycle and then tried the regular wash cycle and it has ran two times fine now. If it was th etimer, do you think it will happen again ? or do you think maybe it was a fluke....

  • morgansmama Oct 21, 2008

    how do I access the timer ? Is the timer directly behind the knob that I turn to start the wash cycle ??

    this is a timing problem. Just by you trying other cycles and working, shows that it is not the gearcase.

  • cmcarter13 Oct 22, 2008

    Yes the timer is behind knob. You have to disconnect timer and pull off metal sheild around timer. Then you can see a bunch of brass fingers, pull them up a little bit and see if you can see any burn marks, you will be able to tell the diff.

Kenmore Series 90 washing machine, won't start cycle


First, see the Sears Parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.26912691&pathTaken=partSearch

Next, see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

I hate to say it but it sounds like a Timer problem.

I'd use the troubleshooting section of the Service Manual and the timer testing procedures to confirm the problem.

Note that there are two types of timers with different procedures to remove them.

Also see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer and other controls.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine - won't stop filling with water on rinse cycle - never moves to next cycle - if I stop machine and manually move to spin, the machine does spin and the water drains


Your air pressure tube going to the water level switch is pinched or stopped up,OR, the water level switch is going bad.
Use this manual to access these parts and diagnose which is bad.

Kenmore 80 series washer fills but does not wash/agitate. will spin and drain when manually turning dial to spin


The agitator dogs may be broken or the transmission could be bad. Try checking the agitator dogs first. They are an easy and inexpensive fix.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.

Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.


No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.

Your transmission is not engaging thats why the speed changes your making will sometimes get it to work.Honestly any machine after the 10 year age mark is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission.
