Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer leaks and keeps shutting off when it starts to spin.

It leaks water from near the top when it starts to spin, then shuts off as if a breaker had blown. It starts spinning really slow, as if it is having a hard time.

 it sounds like your washer is not draining before it starts spinning. the machine should not have visable water in it when it starts to spin. make sure there is no water in the machine and that it is draining properly.

My washer keeps filling up with water then it will spin it out and shut off how do I fix it

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer keeps filling with water then will spin out and shut off. This sounds like an issue with your water valve or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does fix the issue you may want to have a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis. Hopefully this is helpful information. -Matt

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect

Hope this may help;

Hot water stops filling too soon.

Fill setting has to be adjusted and the belt is slipping on the spin cycle and not generating enough centrifugal force to get the water out.

Maytag top load washer. the water does not shut off prior to the spin cycle and continues to overflow onto the floor. suggestions? thanks

It sounds like the pressure dome switch could be out or its in the hose for the dome it could be clogged or hose may be punctured.

To troubleshoot this you will have to access your washer.
Without model number it will be hard but im going to try. If you have an access panel at the bottom in front than take a flathead screwdriver inbetween the access panel and the front panel there are two tab metal that you have to push down to pry the access panel off. If you have a full front panel than at the bottom you need to remove two screws. Once you have the entire front panel off you need to lift up the top on each side there is a usually 3/8 nut holding the top to the sides. Lift up the top and you will see a hose going from a cylinder shape on the side of the outer tub near the bottom. follow the hose up to control counsel. Take hose off the top and check for kinks. Than blow into the hose from the top to make air bubbles in the tub. Its easier if there is some water in the tub. reconnect the hose to your pressure dome. Set top back down dont put front back on yet. try a cycle small load and see if it shuts off. Look for leaks along than hose. If you cant see any leaks and it does not stop. Spin the water out and take hose from bottom where tub is. Start another load on small wait for a few seconds than blow into the hose from bottom to activate the pressure dome. If the washer keeps filling with the pressure dome activated than its your pressure dome switch. If it stops like its suppose to replace pressure dome hose. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Washer leaks water back ln tub after final spin

are you sure the water valve isn't bad and the washer is filling even after it shut off?try this,after you use it shut off the water supply to see if it doesn't have water in it,the only way the water can leak back in is if the end of the drain hose is in say the sink and the water rises up and the hose is in the water and the hose is lower than the top of the washer then it could siphon back into the washer but check to see if you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer,dirt gets in the valve and it can't close all the way and the washer keeps filling even when it's off.let me know what you find.

During the spin cycle the washer started turning off and then on repeadedly and then it just shut down completely and now will not turn on, any idea what the problem is?

Replaced water pump, found 2 quarters located within the old water pump which destroyed the o-ring causing a small leak and hindered the operation of the entire machine.

The first thing to check here is by opening up the top of your washer. Plug off the mains. Check to see the wires are connected to the inlet valve at the point where the water enters your machine, tighten the wires. Then shut off the wall faucet, unscrew the hoses, check the fine mesh at the machine valve entrance, clean out. Refit the hoses carefully without cross threading, open the wall faucet full to check for leaks; advisable to keep faucet fully open. Check to see that there is no leak at the dispenser end of the pipes. You are done now, try the machine (with the top open, caution)

If there is still no water, just change the inlet water valve, you can do it yourself.

Eco smart won't drain, smells hot

you commented on hearing water in the machine after the wash , i know that f&p spin bowls have a liquid inside the actual spin bowl system i think it aids in the spin operation of the machine, but if you had something in the drain network then that will stop the machine from emptingout as it all works on a time basis check and see that you are not getting any leaks from the bottom of the machime as your new pump won't last long if it gets wet also if there is water leaking that can be the main seal on the motor shaft failing
