If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.

I have a kenmore 70 series heavy duty plus. my model number is 82372110. my washer will fill with water but when its time for it to start to agitate it drains the water then fills it and drains it the


Sounds like the main dial is gone on the top control panel. How a washer works, is the water level switch ( the dial that allows you to select the amount of water you want to wash your clothes in) sends a signal to the main dial, when the water level is full to turn on the agitate and the water to shut off. But it is emptying the water instead, so the main dial is skippiing the agitate cycle. If you take the back panel off the top control panel, you will see a mechanism behind the main dial. That is probably what needs to be changed. It costs anywhere from $120 to $180 for the part. You may want to invest in a new one instead but replacing this part should fix your problem as well. It is about a 2-3 out of 5 for someone without experience to fix. Not hard. Have you noticed any whining or abnormal mild grinding coming from the dial itself? This may be a clear indicator that the dial is on its way out.

Spin cycle does not drain water. The washer just stops when it gets to the spin cycle. The washer is a 70 series heavy duty.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine gets stuck in cycle.


Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

What is the capacity of the Kenmore Model 110 Series 70 Heavy Duty Plus washer (circa 1985)? It is finally time to replace it. Sorry to see it go!


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Many of the Sears parts sites for washers have a section where you can see PDF versions of their manuals. Look to the right of the main sub-components list and you may see it.

Kenmore 70 series 110 washer won't drain or spin, but agitates


You have a broken lid switch. Check to see if the switch is broken off of the two screws that hold it under the lid. If it is, get a new one, take off the case and replace old switch with the new one.

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle


if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.
