I have a kenmore washer that stops mid cycle before spin and drain.If I advance dial manually, it will continue and complete the cycle. This leads me to believe timer is the issue. Likely?

Yes it's a timer issue. I opened one once and seen that the following may work.
Sears repair tech told me the points in the timer can stick together. Try this, works sometimes: spin timer around as fast as you can 2 or 3 times, if the points are stuck, this can cause them to release. Other that that? Timers are expensive, unless you get one off a machine that is put out for pick up like I did. People toss these machines for such silly reasons. There's good parts on most of what gets tossed. Here's how to remove the control panel if needed:
Disconnect the power cord. Turn off the water. There is either two screws, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place or hidden clips. 1. If you see the two screws remove them. If no screws are visible you have a clip at each front corner of the control panel. The best tool to use to unhook these clips is a putty knife. From the front push the putty knife between the machine top and the control panel at either outer corner of the control panel . You will feel a spring tension. Push firmly, but not to forcefully toward the back. When the spring releases the control panel corner will lift easily. Repeat at the other corner. 2. Now, if there was two screws holding the panel, remove the two screws at the top on the back of the control panel. If just clips, simply and carefully roll the control panel over the back.
An exploded view of your machine is available at under the parts direct tab enter your model number, found under the lid at the back of the tub opening. aka. 000.00000
Happy Holidays, Jim

Error code 41

The error code E41 means the control board is detecting an open door switch. It might be due to a broken wire harness, broken door lock/switch assembly, or in worst cases a faulty control board.

Unplug the machine or disconnect power. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the spring of the retaining hoop then remove it.


Carefully peel off the part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.


Remove the screws securing the door lock/switch assembly
to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.


Take the door lock/switch assembly out of the front panel then
disconnect the door switch harness then short circuit the terminals by putting a jumper wire between them.


Put the door lock/switch assembly back into position in the front panel then secure it with the securing screws previously removed.
Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop. Reconnect power and run a test cycle. Replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the problem if the washer works fine with the door switch bypassed. If not, replace the control board.

Attached is a diagram of your front control panel. There are 2 screws that attach the panel to the washer. The end caps come off and the knobs should be pulled off then the panel can be removed.

Whirlpool LSQ9500LQ0 will not drain water

Access to the inside on this washer will require taking off the whole cabinet.

1. Remove two screws on the back side and on each end of the control panel.
2. The whole control panel will then pull forward then flip it back out of your way.
3. There are a group of wires coming from the control panel going down to a single plug, unplug them from the main cabinet.
4. Remove the two large brass colored clips on each side.
5. You can now remove the whole cabinet.

The water pump is in front and secured only by two clips top and bottom.

Soap Dispenser

If you remove the inner door some peices are on one panel and some are on the other. It makes it hard to check. There is an actuator in the door. It makes contact from the timer cam to the dispenser lever. You can see if it's gummed up or broken. If that unit has a removeable deco panel on the outer door you may be able to remove it and turn the timer to see how things are moving.
