Question about Kenmore 44072 Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore 970-C42072-00. For a long time it would freeze after the wash cycle but keep going after switching cycles and playing with the timer switch. Now water goes in when when you turn the machine on, but when it is time for the drum to move there is only a hum. The timer doesn't move. If you put the switch to the spin cycle, water will drain out, but again only hums instead of spinning, and the timer stays still.
I did all the tests on the spec sheet found inside the washer. They all check out (except I can only measure 0 for 2 ohms and infinite for 3 megaohms). The motor reads 500 between terminals 1 and 2 where it's supposed to read 2.6, and 0 where it's supposed to read 184. I don't know how to test the timer.
Any recommendations on how to proceed? I'm leaning towards just replacing the timer. But what about those slightly wonky readings on the motor?
Thanks a million
I would take apart the pump and I'll bet you there is a booby pin or something jamming it, I had the same problem and fixed it by myself.
