Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.
it's possible go to www.repairclinic.com and enter the numbers you have posted and it will show you what they are. I have the same problem. What I did was not pretty but it works for now. I broke a piece off of your part#387997 and simply turn my dial that way and then pull the center out to start the wash. Considering a new timer is close to $100+ and it works fine this way , well you know...
thats what it sounds like to me, chances are your drain hose iether runs along hte floor, or is taped in to the drain pipe securley, perhaps even directly piped into drain hose into dry well?? you definalty creating a siphon when the macine enters teh rinse cycle. you can purchase and "air-gap " from the plumbing supplier/ home improvement store. or just redo your existing drain line
If the machine does not start.
Make sure the circuit breakers or fuses are functional in the main electrical panel.
Try to turn them OFF and ON again.
You might need to check the thermal or non thermal fuses inside your washer.
If all appears in working order, you might have a burnt motor if no noise comes from it when you pull out the knob.
Its sounds like you need a replacement knob, if you can turn the disc behind it to start a cycle and the machine times out find the timer is probably still good, do a Google search for Speed Queen parts, and buy the correct replacement knob.
Have you tried starting the wash cycle at several different time settings? Especially the shortest time setting, just before the start of the first spin? If it works at another setting, it's possible the dial/switch mechanism is worn and not making contact at your usual setting. In any case, a spray of a good electrical contact cleaner spray (NOT WD40 or similar) - with the power lead UNPLUGGED - sprayed into the switch mechanism might help. You would need to remove an access panel to get at the switch mechanism.
