Question about Kenmore 24902 Top Load Washer

Top load washer machine will not agitate

I have a kenmore washer machine model no. 110.22642100. It fills with water, and then instead of going into agitate cycle it makes a loud humming/buzzing sound and does not work, when put into spin cycle the water drains, however it makes the same loud noise. Any ideas of what the problem could be?

Hi There,
Check to see that the belt is being driven by the motor when it goes into the wash cycle. Let me know if this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

My 21882 top load Kenmore washer will start the cycle but stops after filling up; i can restart the cycle by pushing the knob in and going a little further in the cycle then starting again. But after a...


When 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.

    if you are saying that the washer finishes the load of clothes and timer goes to off and water is filling the tub after this then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.disconnect the water lines and change out the valve

    I have a Kenmore top loading washer model #110 and won't agitate


    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23912100

    Also see the Whirlpool (Kenmore) Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

    https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


    The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.

    I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.

    Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.

    These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.

    Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.

    My top loading kenmore elite washer model #20972


    No, this is probably a direct drive that has a faulty plastic coupling from motor to transmission. Go to:

    Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water


    if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
    also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

    Series 70 washing machine Will not fill with water


    Sounds like your pressure switch behind the control panel is stuck. Try unhooking the tube going to the switch and see if it breaks free. If not replace the switch.
