Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
OK you washing machine genius folks, here's my problem:
Kenmore Series 70 Washing Machine (Top Loader)
Washes, agitates, drains, but when the spin cycle tries to start, I hear the motor engage, but it won't start spinning...until I open the lid, and close it again. Then, no problem.
Switch? Motor Coupling? Help!
Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
