Question about Kenmore 94802 Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore 94802 - Goes through all cycles.. Doesn't stop after last spin cycle.

I have the Sears White-on-white Kenmore 27 in. Super Capacity Electric Laundry Center. Model number: 94802

Manufacturer: Frigidaire
Part/Model: 417.90812990

The washer fills, agitates, drains, rinses and spins fine.. gets to the end of the final spin but keeps spinning. It does not shut off at the end of the final spin cycle.

It works in the sense that it does clean our laundry, but we need to be there to make sure to turn it off after it gets to the end on the last spin cycle or it just keeps spinning.. for hours (we found on the first time when we had a load going and ran in town and back)

It has this issue on Delicate, Regular and Perm Press. I don't think it's the timer. I am wondering if there is a sensor that tells the machine that there is no water left in the tub/drum, perhaps that is faulty?

    I would like to remove the timer so that I may test it with a multimeter. The knob on this unit does not spin off or pull off. Does anyone know how to remove the timer knob?

I hate to say it, but it sure sounds like a timer problem. There are contacts inside that move and switch items no matter what setting its in. Its a possibilty that the power contact is stuck closed and when you manually turn it off it breaks contact. The job to replace is really not that hard, remove console (unplug unit first), mark your wires, then just replace. The part though is a touch expensive (131789200 Sears Part Number). Probably would be a little cheaper than buying a new unit I guess. Let me know if you need any further information. Jim

I have a GE, 4 to 5 years old, Super Capacity WJRR4170G1WW. When it agitates, the drum goes back and forth with the agitator. I though it should stay still. Please advise.

sorry to say you have a very expensive to repair problem ):
the transmission has a brake built into which is suppose to hold the tub in place during the agitation cycle and then release on the spin cycle to spin. the brake isnt engaging and the only fix is to replace the transmisson which is very expensive.
it may work for awhile then as it gets worse and the tub moves more during the wash cycle water will slosch out of it all over the floor,sorry to break the bad new

It sounds like your tub bearing is bad or going bad. It could be the adjustment on your spin cycle. Does your unit allow you to adjust this. Also are you overloading. Can you send me the brand and model of your unit and I help you more.
