Roger, this sounds like a clogged pump or a bad motor. Not something you're going to be able to do yourself. I have the same general unit and I bless it every day that it works.

Kenmore washer 110.16112503 works in wash & spin cycle but not rinse. After wash cycle finished I hear a humming sound and the machine does nothing until I manually start spin cycle. Broken timer?


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

Kenmore classic dishwasher washing cyle doesn't start


It sounds as if you need to replace the timer. The reset motor is separate from the primary motor--that is why one type of "cycle"--diagnostic-- seems to work but the regular cycle(s) do not.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

The question is why the main motor is not running. Either there is an open contact in the timer, or the motor has a blown thermal protector or tripped internal breaker.

Troubleshooting starts at the timer. Most washing machines have a wiring diagram on a sheet of paper either folded up and stored inside the control panel or pasted on the back panel of the machine. Find the wires going from the timer to the motor. The motor has two windings, RUN and START. The RUN winding has one connection to neutral (WHT or WHT/BLK, meaning white or white with a black stripe) and the other to the timer. The START winding has both connections going to the timer. The timer connects it power one way for agitate and the other way for spin. (The direction of current through the START winding determines whether the motor will turn clockwise or counterclockwise.)

If you are comfortable working in a live 120 VAC circuit with a voltmeter, use the wire colors in the diagram to identify the motor terminals on the timer, set the timer to the agitate position (i. e., right after the machine is done filling and you hear the click), then check for voltage on the RUN and the START winding terminals. For the START winding, measure between the terminals going to the START.

If you don't want to probe a live circuit, you can use an ohmmeter to test for continuity between the hot terminal of the power cord and the motor terminals on the timer. Repeat for the neutral terminal. A failure at this point indicates either a timer problem or (unlikely since the timer runs) a bad contact on the water level switch.

If you get voltage to the motor on both windings, or you have continuity through the timer for both windings, then, with the machine unplugged, test for continuity through each motor winding at the timer. An open indicates a problem with the motor. Note: most machines use a capacitor in series with the START winding. In that case, measure continuity between the capacitor terminal going to the motor and the timer terminal going directly to the motor.

This is probably okay, you have clock like motions running the motor electric contacts. There needs to be a delay between some cycles or shorting will occur. The motor on some designs, for example. is reversed to pump out water. to have this work long term, a delay is inherent and not a concern.

Depending on your dishwasher, it fills either by a timer or by a water probe or float. I will assume its a timer as a probe or float wouldnt exhibit this behaviour. I would say you have a restriction in your water supply line. Check your valves, any screen filter in the water line for sand/scale/silicate/etc, pressure regulator if applicable. Another posibility is a poor magnet in your fill valve.

Kenmore 22956 top loader quit running after agite cycle


If the timer cycles your lid switch is ok.
most likely: motor Switch (on Motor), condenser next to motor, motor itself, or wiring going from the time to the switch,

It is probably cost efficient to replace the unit rather than trowing parts at it .
