Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
1. Our top loader would not begin a regular wash cycle or rinse cycle. Seemed as though it would not fill while there was a motor or pump sound as if it were attempting to. 2. Ran diagnostic test and it completed all steps through C8 and got stuck. 3. Water filled fine. 4. Seemed to skip C7 or not sure what C7 was supposed to do. 5. Water drains on C8. The agitator started moving back and forth. The basket spun a few times and stopped. Once water was drained completely it sounded like the pump was continuing to run dry or the motor was trying to spin and wouldn't engage. Could not tell which. What can we do?

Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.
