Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Washing Machine rinse cycle water

My washing machine adds water for the rinse cycle but the machine doesn't drain it and the clothes just sit there in the water until you have to reset the spin cycle. The cycle on the knob does turn to the finished off position though.

    Is this something I can repair myself by replacing a part or do I have to have a technician in. It's not a very old machine so may be still on warranty.

    Good with this solution. Bummed out that the machine isn't so old and having this issue already. Had already made appointment before contacting you but your service is really helpful. Thanks for your help.

HI, this is a faulty timer control device. it is failing to initiate the rinse cycle correctly. simply replacing the timer will fix this issue.

The timer initiates all action of the unit during the timed cycle selected. if there is a malfunction in the timer control module, it will interrupt the normal pattern of the wash cycle. this is normally a shorted circuit within the timer or a separated solder point.

    ok, if the warranty is still good, i recommend exercising the warranty and allowing the service tech to repair or replace the timer.this will save you money.

    This is basically a plug and play situation, the timer will cost about 90 to 134 dollars tops. you will have to remove the back panel off the control section by releasing a few screws. once the panel is removed, you can then pull off the front knob and release the timer from the inside of the control panel. there will be a few screws and clips that you will need to relieve in order to extract the timer.

    just replace the old with the new. you will have to disconnect the wire harness form the old timer by pulling the clips. place the clips on the new timer and screw the new timer back onto the timer slot on the panel and secure all necessary fasteners. place the back panel back on and your done.

Holding water


Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

just add another drain and spin cycle and start it up again with the completion of the first cycle. Washing some items like sleeping bags takes forever because they are so darned absorbent and hold more water than a tiger's sieve of a bladder. Another drain and spin cycle should solve the problem.

Moffatt washer is washing and draining but not spinning out the clothes


All content © 2000 © 2009 Washerhelp
> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Bleach is spilling directly on to clothes


I have the same problem and here is the reason and the solution. When you add bleach it sits in the dispenser until the rinse cycle. During the rinse cycle the machine pours a lot of water through the dispenser. The bleach is diluted and washed out with all this water into the tumbler and you clothes are rinsed with bleach. Sometimes when this rinse happens, the water does not completely drain from the bleach dispense. It sits in there. If this happens, the next time you add bleach, there is too much liquid in the dispenser and it leaks out onto your clothes.
Solution: Before you add bleach, take the whole dispenser out and see if there is a lot of water still standing in the bleach dispenser section. If there is a lot of water, spill it out into a sink. Then fill the dispenser with your bleach and it will all work out the way it should. I was having your same problem until I discovered this. I have never had the problem since.
