Kenmore Series 90 Washer dial isn't calibrated correctly

The dial to choose the wash cycle seems to be calibrated incorrectly following my 9 year old son's attempt to do his own laundry. I know this seems easy to solve...but i can't get the knob off and can't figure it out!

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.

We have a 9 year old Sears Kenmore 90 Series top loading washer. We have noticed that it makes a loud slamming noise as it goes into the spin cycle! What the heck is going on???


If I remeber correctly
There are three springs that hold the tub to center.
either they have lost there tension or one is no longer connected.

We have an Kenmore 70 Series Heavy Duty Plus washing machine that is about 20 years old. The washer stops after the wash cycle and we have to manually move the dial one notch. The washer then completes the...


This is the deal, your washer is way to old to fix. The board is going bad and that is why it will not cycle properly. It would cost about $150.00 to fix and that does not even include labor. Consider craigslist as you can find some great deals from 40-60 for a newer one. Hope this helps.
