I'd suggest if you don't yet have the replacement, to contact one of several online Appliance parts stores. They will know the part you need and instructions needed to replace it. Usually very helpfull.

SOURCE: Washing machine Kenmore 3.2 cu ft Super capacity plus top loader

fabi, if Im reading you right the machine fills with water and just sits there. Can you hear the motor running when it should be agitating? If so you might have a broken coupler. If the machine is quiet and just sits there, it could be the pressure switch. The first picture shows the pressure switch with the rubber hose and purple wire going to it (far left). There is no model number posted but this is a top loading Kenmore, should be close. Take the rubber tubing off the switch and blow into the switch with another piece of tubing. Does it start agitating? If so, there's your problem. If you do hear the motor running and it's not agitating it may be the motor coupler. If you need more assist...email me at catriver1@gmail.com Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: no power?

Timer is normally 2%of the problem. Usually if nothing happens at all, one would check incomming power, then door latch and or limit switch, then once switched off, inspect in control panel for blown fuse. It gets a little more technical after that as wiring sometimes runs through solonoid valves and motor windings to complete the circuit.

SOURCE: How can I get my washing machine to spin and empty with bad timer

You can't without doing anymore damage to the washer. If there cloths in it you need to take them out. Then you will need one big bucket. Take biggest bowl that you can fit into the washer, empty that into the big bucket. I am sorry there is no other way to do this, other than the way I describe.

SOURCE: removeing timer switch knob

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.

See the following for how to release the console:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=d09053515715195798276a5664b79cf0

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).

On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.

The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.

Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.

I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.

Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.

The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.

How to replace the timer on a Kenmore 90 series washing machine?


The timer on a washing Kenmore washing machine is the brains of the unit. The timer controls how long the clothes are to be washed, rinsed, spun and dried. The timer is located behind the timer knob in the main control panel. If the timer fails, it can be replaced with just a few hand tools.
1 Unplug the washing machine's cord from the electrical outlet.
2 Remove the two screws securing the main-panel end caps with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Lift the main panel up and rotate it backward so the inside of the panel is exposed. If your model does not have end caps, slide a putty knife between the main panel and the washing machine's top, then pry up to free the panel from its retaining clips.
3 Turn the knob by hand from one side while looking at the back of the timer from the other side. You should see the timer knob's shaft turning. Grasp the black plastic locking tab in the center of the timer knob's shaft with a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull it out. You should feel a click.
4 Pull the timer knob off of its shaft. You may need to hold the locking tab with the pliers as you do this. Remove the trim plate from under the knob.
5 Unplug the wiring connector from the back of the timer. Remove the screws securing the timer to the main panel with a nut driver and remove the timer.
6 Install the new timer into the panel and secure it with the screws, using a nut driver. Install the timer's trim plate and wire connector.
7 Install the knob onto the timer's shaft. Make sure the locking tab is still pulled out before installing the knob. Once the knob is pushed onto the shaft, hold the knob with one hand while pushing the locking tab in from the other side. You should feel it click into position.
8 Reinstall the main panel and end caps, if applicable. Plug in the electrical cord and run the washer on various wash and rinse cycles to test that the timer is working.

Things You Will Need
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Putty knife
  • Nut driver
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Timer

Warning
  • Pulling or installing the timer knob without first pulling the locking tab can break the tab, the shaft or the knob.

Trying to replace timer on Kenmore 700 washing machine (model 110.28727200). The existing timer is an Invensys model W10129602. Where can I find replacement or substitute parts?


Here is the timer to order. To remove the knob on the old timer, from the back of the timer there is the knob pin that you push in and it will release the the knob.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Timer only works on heavy cycle not on normal model #11024632300


Could be a bad timer or loose contacts.
Unplug the washer.
Open the control console.
Remove the wire harness connector from the timer and re-insert it.
Also advance your timer manually 360 degrees around several times. This can cause stuck contacts to work correctly.
If this does not correct your problem you will need a new timer.

Kenmore 70 washer, does not move from one cycle to another


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.

This appears to be a timer / timer motor problem.

I'd also look at the Whirlpool / Kenmore direct drive installation and maintenance manual for testing the timer.

The wash cycle appears to be dragging and drawing amperage from the house lights the spin and rinse cycles are fine any ideas


I had a similar problem with my Kenmore washing machine. What I had to do is remove the Timer and clean/blow it out with compressed air and then I re-installed it and it worked good again. The timer is the dial that you turn to set the washer cycles(clicks). It seems the dust gets into the timer assembly and causes it to short out. Now if your waher has digital controls than that is a different story. If it is a mechanical timer try this out before calling a serviceman. A new timer is around $200.

Hi, faulty timer motor or timer, knob you turn for different cycles (programs) , it's called timer, that timer usually run by small motor, and sometimes burnt out, could be electronic too, remove top back panel, look at timer, you'll see small motor, attached by two small screws, remove motor, place ohm tester lead, and check for continuity. if motor is burnt out, replace it, if your timer is electronic, you will have to replace complete timer, good luck.

Kenmore washing machine will not drain


Replace the timer.
This is a neutral drain machine. If there is no natural pause in the timer at the end of the rinse cycle the timer is bad.
