Question about Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore 80 series (model# 110.26842691) washer that will not start the wash cycle and fill with water nor will it start the agitate cycle. It makes NO noise when in either of these cycles so I know it is not trying to do something when in these cycles. However, it will fill with water when you put it in the rinse cycle and it will also go into the spin cycle. After troubleshooting for the better part of the afternoon, I have determined that the problem must be the timer.
Can someone tell me if I am headed in the right direction or if I am missing something before I drop $120 on a new timer? Thanks for your time.
It appears your timer has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
