Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Top Load Washer
I have a Magic Chef washer. Purchased in 1993. Model W205K. The final spin cycle in the Cotton & Linen wash cycle does not work. It does work in the Perma Press and the Knits & Delicates Cycles. I am wondering if the Cotton cycle is a higher spin speed. The operating instructions that came with the washer have these specs for spin speeds: Normal - 600 RPM and Slow 400 RPM. What is the problem? Can I fix it myself? How much will it cost to fix? What parts do I need?
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.
