Question about Kenmore 24872 Top Load Washer
My washer completely stopped running while in the pause setting. It never started backup. Now it doesn't run no matter where you place the setting. After removing the cover, I checked all connections which appeared to be fine the coupler also was checked and was fine. There is a small amount of fine graphite looking dust on top of the gearcase possibly coming from the clutch assembly. Where do I go from here? Is there any way to check the timer or lid switch? Looking foward to a reply!
Do you hear a distinctive "click" when you close the lid? If you don't, the lid switch is probably bad. You can by-pass the switch by lifting the console and unplugging the switch connector. If you jumper across the black and white wires in the connector plug, this could prove whether or not the switch is defective. If you jumper the switch, or if the lid switch proves good, and you still have no activity from the drive motor, I would check the start capacitor, and/or connections to the motor before I would suspect a timer problem (still a possibility, though). You should also check your line voltage coming in just to make sure you're getting power to the unit (not trying to insult your intelligence). There should be a wiring diagram located under the console to aid in troubleshooting. When taking readings on 120 VAC connect one lead to your neutral and take readings with the other lead. This way you have one hand free, and the readings will be more accurate. Ground is not always reliable. Let me know what you find and if I can be of more assistance.
