Hi - I have a Kenmore Washer, Series 80 model 110.82980120. The timer knob just spins. I did some research last night, and was able to get the timer knob off, but not the dial/guard part. My biggest question is this - the threaded rod that the knob screws onto and that goes into the timer also spins freely. Does that mean I need to replace the entire timer, or just the knob?

Hi Thanks for using FixYa. If
the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer. Timers don't often fail. But if every other
part of the washer seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to
be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at
fault. Timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it, if yours does not have a timer then the issue is with the electronic control that has gone bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
You gotta pull out a rod behind the timer and that releases the knob. The rod when pushed into the timer spreads the shaft and holds it on there. To get to the innards you gotta flip up the controls. I have a cool video that shows how
It could be a timer, motor or wiring problem. You would need to check for 110 volts at the timer or motor when in the higher spin mode. If you are getting 110v you have a bad motor. No or low volts you have a bad timer. The motor is either a 2 or 3 speed motor and you would have to determine which winding to check for the 110v. The schematic is usually glued to the inside rear cabinet. Please rate this post.
I have had this happen on a Kenmore in the past, and it was the motor coupling. It is a plastic part, and if it cracks your washer will not spin anymore. If you have the repair parts list, or can find it online, you will find the part I am referring to. Good luck.
I have a Kenmore 80 series mode #2289400. It will wash but will not drain and spin. I have turned the knob to a different spin cycle put it won't spin. I have drained the water out of the tub thru the drain pipe so it's not plugged. When it's ready to spin and it making no noice. Any help would be great.
