Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Kenmore disher skips wash cycles.

On a normal setting (90minutes) it fills, pauses 2 seconds, no pump running, drains. Timer drops to 80 minutes fills, does nothing, drains, drops to 70 minutes, fills, drops to 58 minutes washes and continues as normal. Leaves the dishes dirty

    Found the tech sheet inside the front cover. Ran the diagnostics, since it skipped time when soil sensing I guessed it was the pressure switch. Disconnected the switch the cycles ran full. Not sure if it is the switch or something is plugged.

My GE washer WM0642H is not going through the entire wash cycle. It will be at the second cycle of the wash and the timer will say 49 minutes. The washer pauses for a couple minutes and jumps to the r


Hello Jacqueline;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The model number you have given is for a LG washer.

Anyway, you have a draining problem. FE = Fill Error. Your washer will not fill if it has not drained.

To fix the issue you will have to remove both the washer top and front cover to access the problem components.

Before the start of any work disconnect the washer power!

1.) Pump & or Pump housing is plugged up.
You will need to remove and clean these components:

Part Number 4681EA2001D - $57.00

On this component to check if the pump has failed you will need a multi-meter. Set the meter on the lowest Ohms. Disconnect the wire leads to the pump. Put one meter lead on one pump contact and the other lead on the other contact. If the pump is good the meter should read '0'. Perform this after cleaning.

Clean the pump housing

Check the drain switch.

Part number 6600FA1704X - $24.00

You will need a multi-meter as described above to check this component.

Hopefully, you are just plugged up.

Washer skips spin cycle what is the most likely problem


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom of the unit, after this test the lid switch assembly, you jump it to test it. If the lid switch is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have a Kenmore 80 Series 110. It will run a cycle until it comes to the drain operation. Is there a quick fix or a simple part to replace to fix this?


First check the lid switch for continuity with a electric meter.
If the lid switch is good,set the machine for was.
At the drain cycle listen for a 5 seconds pause in the timer before spinning takes place.
If no pause the timer is bad.

Kenmore 80 Series draining problem


Check the following before replacing the timer.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washing machine does not drain during rinse cycle?


Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2 minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to do this a few times to verify the problem.

If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you

Kenmore Series 80 agitate for 10 seconds and pause for several minutes


No, the most is a damaged pump, does it pause in agitation or just spin? I would check the lid switch and timer.

Spins and then does not spin, I have to coax it by moving the drum???


Becca, your washer has a "delay" built into the timer in the final spin cycle. This is called a "neutral drain" setup. Here's the scenario...

The drive motor has 2 directions, forward and reverse. This affects the transmission the same way...forward= Agitate, reverse= Spin. However! On yours, when it goes into spin, the transmission doesn't engage immediately. (This gives the machine time to drain the water out before it spins. Water is heavy... 8.6 lb's/gal. When you have 20 gal's of water in the tub that's 172 Lb's! That's alot of weight for the motor to spin up, so they designed it to get rid of all that weight first.)

The way the washer does the neutral drain is a combination of two things. Here's how;  The timer will get to the spin cycle (reversing the motor, engaging the water pump, and placing the transmission into "neutral" [<---I'll get to that in a minute]. Then after 8 or 9 minutes draining, the timer will PAUSE for about 5 seconds, then re-engage. This "pause" feature shifts the transmission from "neutral" to "reverse" so it will spin the clothes.

Your problem could be one of the two. Timer not "pausing". OR transmission not shifting out of neutral.

The timer is out of warranty if it's over a year old. Runs about $200 for replacement (or around $130 if you do it yourself). If the transmission is the cause, it's under warranty for 5 years.

The problem you're facing is getting an accurate diagnosis as to which of the 2 components is the cause. The symptoms you describe would lead me to the transmission first. The neutral pawl in the tranny has failed and is not engaging the reverse gear would be my first impression.

Test this... place the washer timer at the very beginning of the Spin/Drain cycle on the "Heavy" cycle. Pull the knob and let it run. Monitor it closely with your ears. About 8 minutes into the drain, the timer should pause for a 5 seconds or so, then start up again. Listen for the "pause" (machine stops completely, no noise). If it does, the timer is OK. If it pauses, restarts and the transmission doesn't engage? It's a failed transmission..

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but if I'm accurate in my blind diagnosis would you please rate my response?

BTW, if it turns out to be the timer, I can walk you through the replacement of it.
