Kenmore stacked washer/dryer - randomly stops in mid cycle

Hi,

The washer in my kenmore stacked washer/dryer randomly stops working in the middle of a cycle. It first stopped during a wash cycle and never finished. I have since tried moving the dial into the rinse cycle and the spin cycles, and every once in a while it will start up when I pull the knob out, but always stops after running for a few minutes.

Sometimes, when I try to get it started, I can hear the ticker in the timer continue for a few minutes, without the machine working, which then stops. The machine often starts if I set the dial exactly on the rinse button, but never lasts more than a few minutes.

I have taken all of the clothes out but it still does the same thing. I have checked the lid latch and it seems to be fine as well.

I have followed similar threads, but can't seem to make out if this a problem with the timer, the pump, or the lid latch. Would appreciate someone's help.

Complicating matters is that the machine came with a house I bought one year ago and I can't confirm which model it is. The inside of the dryer says Mod # is 110.1820293. I believe it is an kenmore 80 series.

Thanks

SOURCE: Washer leaks and tub won't empty in the beginning of the cycle

check your hoses all the connections. you'll have to pull the part with the knobs off to do this inside. If it isn't turning, but the motor runs, it might be the coupler in the bottom of the washer connecting the motor and transmission.

DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

SOURCE: i need instructions on replaceing the motor coupler

First you'll need to unplug the unit; after which I'd shut down the water supply and remove these. If against a wall you'll need to move the washer 3-4 feet from it to allow you to tip the washer back. No reason to lay it all the way down just on a heavy angle so you can access the under belly (be certain it will not come back down on you) I expect there is a noise shield you'll have to pull from its tabs. After which you should have a clear view of the motor and see where the remains of your older worn coupling are. I believe on that unit you'll unplug the motor (look for an electrical connection) then there should be two (2) pieces of metal that act like heavy snaps holding the motor in place, using a screw driver or such "un-snap" these pieces (be careful as once there loose the motor is too) this will allow you to drop the motor and gain full access to the coupling. This job should take @ 30 -45 minutes, take your time, keep it clean, keep it safe and in doing so you'll have saved you some good money.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Washer stopped during spin cycle


Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually working. then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Thanks

Washer stops in mid cycle


This is probably normal. There is a natural pause between agitating and draining, and again between draining and spinning. Hope this helps!
