Kenmore Washer won't Agitate

Kenmore 70 series

Model# 110. 20712 991
Serial# cc 0352576
Part# 3953326
Type 111

Washer will fill with water then washer will try to agitate. Agitator will move some but it is not operating correctly. During this stage there is also a constant noise (sounds like a lawn mower running but not as loud). Tried to drain the water via selector switch but will not drain.

Kenmore washer won't spin or agitate. Sounds like it wants to but can't.

Does the washer fill with water then stop and hum? The problem may be in the timer or processor or it could be the switch that confirms the lid or door is closed.

Washer wont agitate or stop filling on any setting

Hello Friend, Just replace the water pressure/level switch. Replacement will make it fill correctly and agitate. Happy to help.

Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

What is the date of manufacturing based on the serial number of my Kenmore 70 series washer?

It came off of the Clyde, OH production line the 26'th week of 2001.

Amazing, ain't it? Seriously... the info is embedded in the serial number. Here's the link to the code sheet.

Please remember to rate this solution as "FixYa", OK?

Washer keeps filling with water...

you hae a stuck float switch, it shuts water off when it reaches a certain height, fixing it involes removing the top of the washer (not easily done)

Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water

if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

Kenmore 70 series Model: 22702 100 Series CL2738136 Type 111 will not hold water

the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills
