Question about Kenmore 15944 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite, Quiet Pak II Top Loading Washer

My machine stoped changing cylces. 1st it wouldn't start filling without playing with the dial, now it won't change cycles without me manually standing right there to move it forward or to stop a cycle.

I read it is the timer. How do I change the timer and where can I get the parts?

    Same problem, the dial doesn't advance...but everything works when manually advanced. I can't figure out how to get the timer knobs off. I took the two back screws off and the other 3 knobs on the front, but the timer knob doesn' want to budge! I still can't see how to open anything up on this machine!

There should be 2 screw on the left and right side of the console. remove the screws and the console flips back so you can get to the timer. youll have to remove the knob and dial from timer too to get to the screws that hold the timer in place. if you dont have a local appliance parts store in your area then you can order the timer at and theyll ship it to your house

Kenmore elite smartwash quiet pak 9 he4t the washer starts filing water when the washer is turned off.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- not closing fully- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Turn the water off at supply valve, this will stop the water. Then you will need to replace the fill valves on the washer.
