Re: washing machine

Check to see if the pump is leaking, check it in the middle of a cycle you may see water or even suds. if so replace the pump.. before it blows the control board.

Kenmore series 90 washer runs for a short period and then stops


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but what your describing is a classis sign of a bad motor. When the motor is bad it will run will its cool...when it heats up it shuts off and will restart for a short time when colled off till once again hot and shuts off again.

Calypso washer stops/runs every 5 - 30 seconds in the middle of any washing cycle. No error codes. It just stops and than runs again all the time and cannot finish any washing cycle. It is 8 years...

I had the same problem. The washer control board has an intermittent failure. If you unplug power for about 30 minutes then plug it back in you will get a PF code (power failure). Ignore this code and push start again. It may run till it finishes the cycle or it may start cycling again right away. A new board costs about $180 at

Dryer noise sounds like bearing out or a roller is bad model # 417-98702891

my dryer makes a funny noise about 10 to 15 min. into cycle. then shuts off. if you try to restart will not restart unless you hold start button down. once you let go will stop. wait about an hour and dryer will run for another 10- 15 min and start process over again.

Frigidaire top load washer that keeps shutting off

i canty be 100 percent sure
without the model
but it sounds like you motor is trying to start but for whatever reason is cutting out on the overload. Meaning it gets hot,,,and shutsd it self off to save it self
ther ecould be alot of reasons for this,,, far to many to type here,,,
with frigidaire it could be a bad motor capacitor, or a bad start winding on the motor.......
or a simple as a sock between the tubs preventing the tub from truning
sorry i cant be more help
but figured you should have some sort of answer to at least5 investigate

Washer won't run through a complete cycle-stops at 29 minutes

There is a service manual behind the control panel it will show you how to test the door locks. If might have a bad lock solenoid.
