Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I believe I need a new timer

Hello,

I have a kenmore washer, Model #417.40042990, that is about 5 years old. The other day, the washer got stuck during the rinse phase. Now, anytime you try to run the washer, it will start to fill and then just stays there. After 2 hours, it was still in the same phase. The door is still locked during this process, so I don't believe it's the door lock mechanism. Am I on track to assume the timer needs to be replaced? I don't want a tech to come out for $100 to tell me what I may already know.

thanks

Kenmore Elite wash model 100 22942 only hums, will not run after it is filled. The washer is about 17 years old


If the motor is humming it could be that it is stuck and cannot turn. Look for obstruction in drive or pump. If you leave motor on it will burn out. See if you can disconnect the motor from what ever it drives to see if it will spin freely. If it does then my diagnosis is correct.

My Kenmore 11020022012 washer stops prior to spinning cycle. If I manually turn the dial to spin, it will spin fine. Need help troubleshooting..


timer needs new electric motor to advance from rinse to spin cycle.
or alternately ,you can have your old timer taken out of your washer and sent out to be rebuilt or buy a new timer.
in any case , you will need a kenmore washing machine repairman to take out your old timer and send it away to be rebuilt and expect that to take 2 or 3 weeks
the timer rebuild used to cost$ 50.00 in 1993 and a new timer went for $110.00 to $129.00
for a sevice man to take out and reinstall a timer $60.00 to 100.00 labor
try to google.com or bing.com or ask.com-----and type in : kenmore washing machine,rebuilt timer. you will need the model number of the washer as well as the model number of the timer and the timer may have a different name that kenmore
also try typing in kenmore washer,new replacement timer
try call sears and see how much their service man wants to put in a new timer. I am sure prices have gone up since 1993
when I retired from the major appliance repair busness. i could do the timer remove & install, but I probably live 1000 miles from you.
another option: knowing that you will need to spend around $200.00 or more by the time you get a new timer installed
you might want to see how much lowes or home depot wants for their cheapest bottom of the line washer. that might be a good alternative as it allows you to get a new washer and buy an extended warantee so you dont get stuck with another 200.00 repair. I think they have washers starting at 289.95 only 90.00 morte that repairing your old washer which is going to run for how many more years before it again gives you trouble?
check out lowest prices on bottom of the line washers unelse you want to spend a lot on a fancy washer to make yourself happy.
you can shop on line by just google.com or bing.com and the name of the store. home depot, lowes, sears,walmart
and type in clothes washers.

11 year old Kenmore washer fills then stops.


in the machine under the front control panel will be a module that controls the wash agitation. Have it checked out as they fail . There is no connection between the timer and this unit as it comes in to play when the water reaches a set level. The timer just keeps working through the cycles believing the washer is agitating.

I have a Kenmore/Whirlpool Washing machine model 110.26832691 that doesn't allow hot water into the tub. I have put a new timer as well as a new temperature switch. Any answer?


Hello

Please try to swap both the connections, hot to cold and cold to hot, swapping will hopefully work. If swapping wont work then the water inlet valve also known as inlet hose assembly is bad and needs replacement. Please check the water level switch as well although I believe it is the water inlet valve causing this problem.

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.

My Kenmore 70 series is 18 years old. It will not


Hello. Since your machine is 18 years old and the agitation/spin is costly to repair I would definitely recommend a replacement washer.

Kenmore Elite Washer


seems the timer knob is old and need of replacement normally happens due to age as the timer switches inside the timer knob become old and sticky mostly unable to move so the timer isnt able to do much of its job

Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch? Thanks, Ernie C.


Hello birddog44,

Happy to help you.


You said, Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch?

If the washer works, I can only assume, you are talking about the dryer not starting when you press on the start button.

I believe that it just might be the start button.
Is it a gas or electric dryer?

You have the Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO

How old is this appliance?
The model # sounds like an older model.

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You,
huuum

My kenmore washer fills up but then just stops


it could be several things, something is lodged in pump, so the motor wont run, the motor is bad, or you have a bad transmission.

Start with the pump and see if it has sock or something stuck in it.

My Kenmore diswasher gets stuck between the quick rinse and drying cycle


I am having the same issue as described above. I think it is either the timer, thermostat (temp assure), or thermostat (temp boost) that needs replacing. The dial gets stucks in both the wash temp boost cycle and rinse temp boost cycle. However, I don't have a picture of the temp assure or boost part. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks. -Bill
