Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Our Kenmore washing machine trips the breaker after it fills with water approximately 1 out of every 4 times we use it. We've replaced the breaker so we know that is not the problem. Any thoughts??

It sounds like the agitator motor is binding, which is probably causing the overload and resulting trip of the breaker.

Drop the motor away from the gearbox/tranny and retry...if it doesn't trip, there is something in the drive holding the motor back from running properly...if it still does it, something in the motor itself or motor power ( timer, wire, wire plug ) is causing the breaker to trip. Be sure to check the pump to make sure nothing is in it.

Fuse


Make sure the breaker is not tripped, make sure you have 120 volts at the plug outlet. make sure you water hot and cold water valves are open. sounds like to me your the fill valve is bad ( thats where your hoses hook to the washer) try to wash a load in cold water only then try hot water only. if you have power most likely its your fill vale

Kenmore 80 series filled with water but now will not drain or agitate. It has just died. Any ideas how I can at least get the water out?


You might check your circuit breaker box to see if any of the circuit breakers are tripped. A tripped circuit breaker will have its handle between on and off. If one is, push it off, then back on. The only way I can think of to get the water out is to pull the clothes out and dip it out. sorry. Best of Luck

Machine will not work, motor hums


It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Amana washer won't fill with water


1st I checked the power, compressor in garage had tripped the breaker to the washer circuit. This model has no bells or whistles to tell you if the power is on to the unit. Reset the breaker and unit works.
Thanks FixYa

No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

My washing machine starts only when i select a cold wash.


If it's tripping breaker in house there is a short in unit. Check wires going to hot water valve for bare wires hitting metal. If wires are ok, replace inlet valve.
