It appears your timer/main controller 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.

Hi. I have the Kenmore 110.92588210 washing machine. The machine will fill, agitate, drain and spin but will not refill again for the second rinse. It will actually skip the rinse and go right to...


Remove the tubing from the level switch and blow out any sediment that may be obstructing the tubing then re-secure. Yank out the timer molex plug and look for corrosion on the plug. Remove the timer. Remove the sheathing from the timer and turn the barrel with your finger looking for burnt spots on the barrel. That is a sign of arcing contacts. Replace the timer or send it off to be rebuilt if you see burnt spots. I gotta say from looking at this part and being a parts supplyer I never or rare ever sold any of these over the years, they simply don't go bad. Now if yours had a plastic housing yeppers I have sold many of them. Having seen the part I would say you have a bad timer. Try and clear the plastic tubing and make sure it ain't pinched up against the rear of the cabinet where the case fits against the bulkhead. It is supposed to be in the channel alongside the harness. Let me know.

We can only use hot water in our Whirlpool 7.5kg WFE1070BD 1000RPM - how to we shut off the hot water and use cold water? We have tried only cold but the machine will not operate. Please help. Many...


Turn off the water to the machine. Disconnect the cold water hose from the back of the machine and put it in a large bucket. Turn on the water to see if you get full-pressure cold water from the hose. If not, the shut-off valve or other plumbing has a problem.

If you do get cold water from the hose, check the strainer inside the hose fitting on the back of the washer. Clean it if it is clogged. If you still don't get cold water in the machine, you have a problem with either the solenoid valve or the cold water fill contacts in the timer (the timer won't start until the tub is up to the selected level, but if the valve isn't opening or the supply line is otherwise blocked, the machine will never fill). Sometimes in this case you can hear the solenoid valve humming (normally the sound is masked by the running water).

If the problem is a clogged strainer, clean out the hot water strainer also.

I find I get better wash results with warm water (runs both hot and cold for the wash cycle). The soap is more active than in cold water, so I don't need quite so much, and the machine doesn't take as long to finish a cycle since it fills faster. Of course, the cold water has to be running to get the energy savings compared to hot only.

My frigidaire top loader fills with water at the beginning of the wash...then nothing. it just sits there full of water.


Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.

No water during cycle


Check water valve if you know electricity you can test with 110 directly on water valve & see if water comes out or check valve with ohm meter.
Check water level switch this switch must work to feed power to water valve. Voltage also must go through timer. Timer last thing to check (rare).

Machine fills with water & then clicks but goes no further. It will drain but no other function seems to work


That is probably a problem with the timer.

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    things to check, to narrow it down:
    • is the timer stopping prematurely? (timer problem)

    • is the machine draining the water as fast as usual? (water pump problem or something blocking water flow)

    • is it spinning as fast as usual? (clutch problem)
    if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
