Question about Kenmore 24902 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore series 80 washer only works on heavy duty cycle.

My washer overflowed (I had the level switch between tow settings).
Now it works , but only on the heavy duty cycle. When I try on the other duty cycles when it starts on the agitate proton of the cycle it starts to agitate and makes a groaning sound and then retries. I also noticed the lights dim in the laundry when it tries to agitate on anything but heavy duty.

I have kenmore 80 series heavy duty/ super capacity plus washer that after it fills with water,hot or cold and it starts the wash cycle, I noticed that the agitator only moves once in awhile and stops


hum either a bad timer sticking the point contacts close. have u tried this in all cycles? and possibly a motor with bad windings not enough power to run agitation? try running in mild or gentle and see what happens? I was tempted to say the cam dogs in agitator but they dont work then stop then work, when they go out they go out.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Water not cutting off at full level and leaking-Kenmore washer 80


The water lever sensor/switch is not working and needs to be replaced. IT has a air tube that senses the water lever by pressure. It the tube is clear then the switch needs replaciing,, If they is a clog, clear it and retry before replacing it.

Kenmore washers, heavy duty 80 series, no spin


Hello, Your problem is going to be with your lid switch, this is located normally either in the control panel or about half way down on the right side under the lid. This is a safety feature to stop you opening the lid while the machine is in a high spin. Once you have located the switch trace the wires back to the wire harness in the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch from the wire harness and with an ohms meter check for condinuity on pin 1 & 3 (the 2 outside pins not the middle this is a ground) You should find you have no condinuity and should replace this switch. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

This problem is generally caused by a pressure switch failure. The pressure switch controls when to shut the water inlet valve off at the appropriate level and is located behind the load level or water level selector knob on the operator console. Before assuming, however, that you have a defective switch, read the following link first:

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

In the majority of the problems I have experienced with an overflow condition on a washer, it has been caused by the air hose coming off the pressure switch. Hopefully, this will be the case with your washer and will not require parts. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
