Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have the 800 series from Kenmoore. I have had the machine for quite a while. Great Machine. The timing stops between Wash and Rinse cycle. I can not tell if it is a timer issue or the micro switch in the lid down switch.

Check your lid switch. More commonly, this is caused by a lid switch not working properly. If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The fact that the washer starts and washes, usually indicates the timer is functioning to some degree. It is not a common problem for the timer to go bad for just a segment of the wash cyle (but...it can happen). I would still suspect the lid switch due to the amount of wear it gets. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Verify that BOTH hoses are hooked up to the correct water inlet and they are TURNED ON and FLOWING. Your condition acts like hoses are reversed, and the hot (cold actually) is turned off, that will cause the machine to stop on the rinse cycle....

My Whirlpool washing machine is not stopping after completion of wash cycle instead it is repeating the cycle again. It is not consistent, but out of 3 washes 1 wash is happening that way...we are manually stopping machine by gaurding carefully when timer shows nearer to completion.

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
