Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer

3 Answers

Kenmore model number 110-66912692

Timer is going very slow. I would like to replace it.

Is it a hard job? I have replaced a water pump in a Kenmore Fridge.

Is there a site where I can get the instructions?

Thank you very much for your help.

    Thanks guys. The wife tells me that it is taking double the time that it "usually" does. (whatever that means) you know women.

    She said that it will "eventually" turn off.

It's not a hard job at all. i just replaced mine because two of the contacts were welded together. all you have to do is remove the back plate from the control panel. it has about 5 screws with 1/4" hex heads. then I think there are two more 1/4" screws that hold the timer in place. when you take the wires off the timer on the back make sure that the terminals they're connected to are labeled. i'll tell you what i mean by that. the one that i replaced had labels for each color of wire that went to each terminal. for instance: the black and yellow wire went to the terminal that was labeled "BY" and the blue lead was labeled "BU" etc. if you want to be on the safe side, just take a couple of pictures of it with a digital camera or your cell phone but it's pretty straight forward. if the timer isn't labeled as to where the wires go, just label them yourself. good luck

Kenmore timers are easy to replace

1) Disconnect power.
2) Slide out from wall.
3) Remove 3 screws across back of control head.
4) Pull plug connector from back of timer.
5) Remove knob (pull.).
6) Remove 2 screws and lift timer out.
7) Re-assemble in reverse order.

Timers do turn slowly. If the dryer runs, and never quits, then the timer is probably bad. But if the dryer runs for up to two hours or so, then it is probably OK. Reply back what problems are you experiencing.

It is fairly simple .The older style you yank the knob straight off and get the hex head screws out (2) The newer style you release a locking tab in the rear and twist the timer 1/4th a turn. So easy you won't believe it.

    Reach inside the drum and clean the gunk off the 2 long metal sensors. They measure capacitance in the wet clothes to determine dryness. They work in conjunction with a moisture sensing board mounted beside the timer. It will only power up the motor on the timer if no moisture has been sensed by those metalic strips. Try that first and if you still have trouble yank out the connector on the sensing board and clean the copper contacts with alcohol. Retry.

Our kenmore 80 series (110.27812692) pooped out on us,... the motor and water pump needed replaced, so we bought a used kenmore 70 series (110.82872820) from a friend,... it works fine, but the control...

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer(s):

Enter the model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Check the part numbers for both machines in the "Console" section.

Also see the following Whirl[pool Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.$FILE/L-55.pdf

Whirlpool top load, washers use one of two different timers. Depending on the timer the knob comes off differently.

For most, by holding the back of the timer shaft with a thin needle nosed pliers, the knob unscrews.

I have a model 665.15831791 When it fills with water it does not go into a cycle, it automatically discharges the water

It could be two things causing such problem: no power to the wash pump motor or the motor itself is bad. Remove the wire plug from the motor and check for the 120V when the timer is on wash cycle. If there is no power then check the wires and the plug at the timer. If this is not an issue replace the timer.

If there is a proper power to the motor then the problem with your dishwasher is a bad wash pump motor. If your dishwasher is less then 5 years old then it could be under limited manufacturer warranty. Call kenmore with the model and the serial numbers and they will tell you. If the dishwasher is more then 5 years old I do not recommend you to repair it yourself. I've seen many times when it's not possible to install the pump back after repair because the plastic tub got warped.

here is the link to the schematic diagrams for your dishwasher ... you can also order for timer and other parts if need be from the same link as well

Washing machine is Kenmore mod. 110 22422100. After setting load size and time setting I pull the dial and sometimes(most of the time) water won't fill and the agitator will agitate. What is the problem...

You have a broken point inside the timer. I hate to say that there is no cheap solution. You will have to replace the timer. There is no rebuild kit or anything like that to repair the timer. I know of two suppliers where you can buy a replacement. I use these sometimes when I regular supplier hasn't got a part in stock. I checked the price at both for you and found the best price at . their cost if $123.08 plus shipping. They ship same day if before 4:ooPM. Their Part Number: AP3020181 . When you go to their site enter either your model number or this part number. If you enter you model #, scroll down until you find the timer, Th part # will take you straight to it. I sure hope this helps.

Water does not go out

Dishwasher will not pump out water. Replaced timer. Still same problem. Checked discharge hose - no issues. What next? How to check / evaluate. Timer cost me $100, and was not the problem. Help. Broke.

Kenmore cycles not working

Agitating as it fills, definitely sounds like a timer problem. The contacts inside the timer have likely shorted and fused together.
Replacing the timer will fix it and it's not too difficult do replace yourself.
Depending on your model, you can try removing the timer and opening it up. Once opened, use a small screwdriver to gently pry the shorted contacts apart. This may work for a while but once the contacts have shorted, it will possibly happen again.
Post your model number and I'll try to assist you if you need more help.
Good luck!

Kenmore dishwasher various problems

The portable dishwashers of the 70's and 80's often had one area of problem, and that was the pump getting jammed with debris and food.

To eleminate this problem, you will need to open up your dishwasher carefully, and drain all the water and gunk from your dishwashers rinse hose. I recommend taking the machine outside and use a low setting pressure hose (garden hose). With the hose off the rinse side, run the water through and see if it comes out of the pump's housing. Let it run for a few minutes.

The pump also has a switch that also goes with the run cycle. This switch thinks there is not enough water or it thinks it has done its job.

Sometimes replacing the timer helps, but first eliminate the lower hose situation first. If that doesn't help, you will need to then replace timer. If this doesn't help, most likely your pump is most likely jammed or malfunctioning.

Washer fills/agitates and stops prior to draining

If pump works fine or still pumps out water, then it is a timer malfunction. Replace the timer and you should be fine. To locate a part number for your timer, refer to with the model number off your washer.

Kenmore dishwasher

fatubu, are you sure you have the correct model number, Im not finding anything on the posted model. They had an issue on models close to this that had an issue with a twisted or missing seal in the pump assy. causing water to fill the pressure switch hose. The dishwasher would drain water after the fill. The fix was to replace the pump and motor assy. back.
