I have a washer kemore 600 series, it pumps water in but will not do anything else. Is there a reset button on the motor or pump?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? try to unplug for 15 min then reset the home breakeer than plug in the machine again and try Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. To determine if the lid switch has failed, watch the part testing video . at repair clinic.com Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse. or it will fill but will stop after that

Soap left in clothes


Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Do you take the “Sd” error code for high level of suds? If we are talking about a FAV6800A or FAV99800A and the series is 12 or more you have a 2 level sensing pressure switch. This will give you about 3.5” for mid fill and 7” for high fill. I have only seen the Bulky wash cycle fill to High level fill.

Are you using HE detergent and the amounts called for in Use & Care section of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual ?

If you have a series 10 thru 12 FAV6800A you will have 3 Level pressures switch sensing. Disregard the Low Fill setting IMOP it doesn’t put enough water in the machine for adequate wash. I believe that is why Maytag did away with it and went to 2 level sensing pressure switch in later series…………Rich

Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com
