Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a Kenmore top load washing machine- which is about 13 years old. All of the sudden it started to agitate at the beginning of the cycle when it fills. Also, during the spin cycle it releases water (like it is in the fill mode). I went ahead and did laundry and just ignored the agitator during the fill, however when it came time for the spin cycle I would shut the water off in the back. After a couple days of my new washing clothes regime it started to smell like burnt rubber. We stopped using the washing machine. Please help. Thanks. Tami

    Do you think that is where the smell is coming from?

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.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Hello Dbriner,
    It would appear that the lid switch is defective and is in need of replacement. I included a video showing basically how to replace it (It is a series 80 machine but that is minor).The steps are the same.

    Your part can be found here for $29.65 +Shipping

    Good Luck!

    Agitator doesn't agitate - kenmore model 110


    how old is the machine? agitator dogs in agitators have only been used for the past 15 or so years. sounds like you need to take the agitator out and replace the 4 dogs in the top of the agitator. not a costly repair.
