Question about Kenmore 24852 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Doesn't always agitate but runs through all other cycles

Kenmore model 22852. Never know when problem will appear, Can wash numerous loads without trouble, next load doesn't agitate.Have to play with the timer, spinning dial stopping at times to pull knob out and see if the agitator starts up. Eventually will get it to work in wash cycle, rinse fills fine then may or may not agitate. Timer continues to run, tub empties water and spins dry. Next load may run through cycles fine. It's driving me crazy.

    Sorry about this but I did leave out a major fact...I already replaced the timer and it still acted up so just for fun put the original back in and they both did the same thing. I now have  the new timer in the machine and the original on my work bench. Still have on again off again agitation (or should I say agrivation) when I run the machine. 
    The machine is actually a Kenmore 80 series Model 110 22852 100 Type 111 but I only found the 24852 listed on the website when I was looking up kenmore machines if that makes any difference. I was wondering if the "Speed" selector could cause the problem? I have tried setting this switch to other settings (Delicate, normal, handwash or heavy duty) but that didn't seem to make a difference either. Mom (she's 84) just wants to buy a new machine but this one washes fine when it works and it seems in very good condition otherwise. Any other suggestions will be appreciated.


    Sincerely


    John

HI. you can eliminate this issue be replacing the timer control device. this device is faulty and it should be replaced as soon a s possible. the dial you mentioned in your post, initiates all the actions that the washer will go through in the designated time chosen. if this timer control device is malfunctioning, it will interrupt the normal functions of the washer.

If you could give me your complete model number, i can direct you to a on line parts store where you can order this part on line for a great price.

    OK, check the lid switch. if this switch is faulty and if it has a short, it will affect the agitation and spin as well. check to see if its loose and check the wire that are connected to it as well. let me know if the lid switch is OK.

    I would also inspect the entire wiring harness from the timer to the motor and all switches. this could be as simple as a faulty wiring harness.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Kenmore Elite Top Load does not spin on spin cycle


Hi, If the inner tub has dropped down, you will need to change the block that holds the tub to the shaft. Remove the agitator cap and then use a 7/16" socket to remove the bolt holding the agitator in.
Lift the agitator out and look at the block holding the inner tub. There should be two slots with two tabs sticking up inside them. You will probably see metal shaving as well.
If this is what you see, please let me know and I can direct you on further repair.

Thanks

Your air pressure hose going to the water level switch is pinched.
Open the top control panel to access the clear plastic tube and relieve the pinched area.

KENMORE ELITE TOP LOAD

Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate


• Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
and pull to start.
Are the water inlet valve screens clogged?
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Is the water inlet hose kinked?

• Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
appear to not fill completely? The top of the agitator is
much higher than the highest water level. This is normal and
necessary for clothes to move freely.
• Has a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker open? If problem
continues, call an electrician.
• Are you using an extension cord? Do not use an extension
cord.
• Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle? The washer
pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the
cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of agitation
and soak.
• Is the washer overloaded? Wash smaller loads.
• Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
