Kenmore 80 Series Washing Machine Not Working

Kenmore Washing machine will fill with water and then stops. If I manually move the knob it will agitate. It will not spin or drain. Any advice as to what the problem could be? Thanks is advance.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 70 Washing Machine - won't drain water

look at the bottom of the control panel on the end caps and back out the two screws then pull the control panel slightly forward and tilt it back then you should see gray wires either going in the body of the washer or to a switch on the left side un plug the harness and put a jumper wire across the connector going to the control panel then try spin

Your air pressure tube going to the water level switch is pinched or stopped up,OR, the water level switch is going bad.
Use this manual to access these parts and diagnose which is bad.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 80 fills with water and won't stop

Good day,
Sounds as if the water level switch is bad, or the hose to it has broken, come off or is plugged up at the base where it enters the tub.
Remove the 2 screws that hold the console in place. They are either at both ends front, both ends front but hidden by end caps that have to be un clipped, or lastly at the bottom back.
Pull slightly forward and rotate the console up from the front and away from you.
You will see the water level switch with a plastic hose pressed onto it. Remove the hose, and blow into it with the tube partially filled. You should hear it gurgle. If broken, the air will just escape, if plugged and you cannot get air thru it, it will have to be cleaned.
If everything checks O.K. with the hose, then the fill control (pressure switch) is bad, and needs replaced.

The agitation mode works thru the pressure switch, but the switch is bypassed in the pump out spin mode. That's why it performs as you described.

Your transmission is not engaging thats why the speed changes your making will sometimes get it to work.Honestly any machine after the 10 year age mark is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission.
