Question about Kenmore 24812

Open Question

Kenmore washing machine

I loaded my washer and set it on the correct load size, washer temp. etc. Turned the control knob to start it. Pulled knob out and nothing happened. Knob feels loose when it is turning--almost like it is stripped. All the other setting knobs turn fine. There is power to the machine and the water hose is hooked up fine. Just did a load yesterday and it worked fine. Help please!

SOURCE: Kenmore W/D #110.88762793 keeps filling w/ timer in any position

If the washer does not shut off when filling, the pressure switch is usually the culprit. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

In many cases, the only problem is the air hose comes loose from the switch, or is cracked or punctured somewhere. If the air hose is intact, and the electrical connections are good (no broken, loose, or corroded wires), then I would recommend replacing the switch. The part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just go to the website and type in the model number you have provided and go to the "Washer/Dryer Control Panel" heading for itme number 13 (part #3952465). I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

Whirlpool GSQ9669LW1 washer. Originally Load Size was set to small. After water was filled to that level and machine started to work, wanted to add more water. Turned the Load Size knob to Medium, nothing...


You would have to start the wash cycle all over in order to get enough water for the med load size. Once the washer starts it cycle you have to cancel that cycle to start a new one. Hope this is a help to your question

Loses power in spin cycle


First lid must be down before washer start spinning. Remove any obstructions in drain hose and or straighten drain hose to remove kinks. Lid or other object hit timer knob and turned the washer off - Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
If the lid was opened with too much force when adding clothes, it may have hit the timer knob, pushing the knob in.
If a laundry basket or other object hit the Timer knob, the Timer knob may have been pushed in shutting the washer off.
Washer lid is not locked (Not on All Washers) - The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.
If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
Use a flashlight to inspect the holes in tub for foreign objects like screws, nails, bra wires, etc. and remove if present.

My Kenmore front loader sometimes fills with warm water on cold setting.


Most washer today use automatic temp. control fill valves. If water is too cold the control might mix in some hot to bring up to a preset temp. The same is true when control set for hot. For energy savings cold water will be mixed in to maintain a semi hot temp. Check with manufacture just to be sure.

Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load


remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling

Kenmore washing machine


It looks like you have a water filler valve problem, with your washer emptied turn the water faucets back on and turn on the washer, if it starts filling turn your timer knob around several times, like you were hunting a cycle you wanted to use. This may make something dislodge from the valve.if blocked If not try the same thing with your water control knob. turning it from hot to cold and then to hot again......I hope these work.....check equally the hose and if that is your problem you may need a new water valve.
