If the timer board is making ticking noise and the machine is not spinning, you can have a faulty timer control, or a faulty motor.
I can be more specific if you give me the model number as printed on the service tab.

    If it only does not spin it can still be the variable speed motor.

    Apart that it can be a number of things.

    Please give me the model number so that I can refer to specific parts, things are different if there is an MCU or not.

    By the way , if the board is clicking, the first thing to do is having a look at the timer board and test it.

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 am washing clothes in a borrowed Kenmore washer. It's probably 10 years old. It stops short of completing the Rinse cycle and never makes it to the Spin cycle. The bowl will start filling up w/ water,...


This is a typical problem with the "lid switch" on the washer. The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Kenmore Series 90 washing machine, won't start cycle


First, see the Sears Parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.26912691&pathTaken=partSearch

Next, 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

I hate to say it but it sounds like a Timer problem.

I'd use the troubleshooting section of the Service Manual and the timer testing procedures to confirm the problem.

Note that there are two types of timers with different procedures to remove them.

Also see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer and other controls.

Maytag commercial washer gets to spin cycle and stops


It sounds like your timer is defective

FIX

When the machine gets to the rinse cycle slowly advance the setting to manually advance the timer
if it just sits bang on the panel or around the knob and listen if ou hear the timer start ticking you will need to replace it

Timers are avaliable from appliance parts suppliers around $29 you can get someone to install it or if you are handy can do it yourself

good luck
