Re: washers

When you changed the water pump, did you notice a little plastic bulb with a flexible hose sticking out of the side of the washer tub. If so, you may have accidentally messed it up by changing the water pump. Examine the machine, you sound pretty capable so I think you can go from here if you find the thing I'm talking about.

Washer will not spin or agitate Washer will fil and pump water out motor will not come on Have replaced the motor and the lid switch After replacing the motor the washer worked ok for about 4 or 5...

This is sounding like either a timer or a water level switch problem. I would elimnate the water level switch first. Here is why..... You had to tip the unit to change the motor. Tipping the unit would ensure that the small tube that runs from the bottom (side) of the wash tub to the water level control pressure switch cavitated. Once this is clear the water level control was for a while able to sense proper water levels and the diaphragm inside the pressure switch cycled normally. If the sens line had a pin hole in it or the water level control pressure switch contacts have a problem it will present the symptom you currently have.
I cheat.... I hook up an equal sized tube to the water level pressure switch and add pressure and release pressure orally to force the pressure switch to work. (Automotive vacuum line works like a charm!) If it works by physically forcing it to work then the timer is fine. The Pressure switch is probably ok also. The sense tube running from the presure switch to the tub would be the problem. With all water removed... (drain hose lowered too to empty the machine) tip the unit again. Then see if it will fill and agitate on a small load. Also check to see if it spins. IF it agitates and spins... the sense line if most likely the problem. (pin hole chaffed etc)

There is still a remote possibility of the Timer causing the problem OR the contacts inside the water level pressure switch as the problem. If you can find the tech data sheet inside the console there should be a wiring diagram. Check the water level control for power in and out both with water level reached and empty. If the contacts are working on the water level control pressure switch... your probably looking at the timer as the problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The water level never stops, it just fills till it over flows

if on auto level select water level eg medium or low depending on amount of clothes this sometimes works dont use auto water level. If not check small pipe under touch board on top panel, make sure u unplug mains from plug pipe may be loose its small plastic goes to level sensor on right of board. If not level sensor faulty.

Washer sticks in LD.....even changed pump...still wont work


Thanks for using FixYa. Error Ld means long drain and it flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose and the drain pump for any blockages. Also check if the pump is running fine and replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Kenmore 80 series will agitate but not spin or let water out.

Hi, I know washer had a party, he just need a dancing partner, joking, that's a common problem, when machine is not properly level, you should used spirit level, to level machine, after leveling machine, place both hands on machine, and try to rock it from left to right, forward and backward, and it should not have any play, if there's play adjust legs to compensate, water has to be pumped out first before machine spins, rhere's something wrong with water pump, maybe some fabric stuck in pump impeller, or maybe wires disconnected from water pump, remove back of machine and check connection to water pump, check for kink hoses, visual check, if wire were remove, connect to water pump, you're smart. good luck.

Everything works fine but it will not spin

Hi, you got water pump problem, some pump have a filter you can remove and clean, or some some small clothing could get into it. or you can open water pump and manually check for foreign object. you can empty machine, by lowering drain hose to floor level, you will need somthing to collect water, then check pump.

Maytag clothes washer, with pump and belt replaced in Nov. 2007, clothes were too wet after spin cycle

The start of the spin cycle is dependent on the pump pumpin out water and the later level switch sensing that the water level is low enough. The water level switch has (usually) a clear tube connected to it and is found in the control panel. You will want to check continuity at different times. First you will fill the tub to the highest water level. Then unplug the machine. By screwing in the screw on the water level switch. Scew it all the way in. then you will check continutity. there should be no cont. between green and brown. and there should be cont between green and black or yellowblack. Do this continuity test with the wires off the switch. Once this test is complete, reattach the wires and plug in the machine and set the timer on spin or drain. When the tub is pumped dry, stop the spin cycle and unplug the washer and do the continuity test again. This time you should have continutiy from green to brown. and no continuity from green to black or yellowblack. Now when i mention the colors that means the placement where those wires were. Make note before you remove them so that you can get them back to place. If you do not get these readings, the water level switch is bad, or there is a leak in the air pressure tube leading to it. At that point I would replace the entire switch and tube. I wish you the best of luck.

Kenmore 90 series top loader washer water level.

There are easy checks before you replace the level selector body

remove the trim plates at both ends of the control panel to expose Phillips head screws 1 at each end. remove the screws
lift and swing the control panel up and over the back, it is hinged at the top.
The washer can be operated in this condition for testing

1 Rremove the air hose, and blow it out.
often water remains in the tube after changing levels, the water is not compressible so a small change in water level in the tank, makes too much difference in the sensor.
reconnect the tube and try a cycle ~1/3 chance of fixing it

If fail,
2 The spring inside Kenmore water level sensors that reacts to air pressure in the tube is not up to the job and stretches, not noticeable till changing water level settings moves the anchor point of the spring.
pull off water level knob from control panel front, from control panel back depress lock tab at right of level selector body rotate counter clockwise 45 deg and remove
adjacent to selector knob shaft is 1/8inch nut, turn clockwise to raise water level counter-clockwise to lower water level, test, adjust, test adjust ~1/2chance of fixing it

If fail
replace level selector body
