Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Clothes washing machine

Cycle dial will not advance on its own, just manually. Spin cycle will start if you open then close lid after water drains, otherwise must be done manually. Machine seems to work as it should, just that the dial has to kept going manually to get to end of cycle. Also, wash and rinse water turns quite a dark blue.

    fyi, it does not advance in any part of the cycle on its own. Thank you very much for all of your help and info!!

    Me again! I have been manually advancing the **** to the different cycles when doing laundry, and did a load on a different wash setting (Permanent Press cycle instead of the Ultra Clean cycle which I usually use). To my surprise, the machine went thru the complete cycle from start to finish all on its own! Do you still think it is the timer? I have one on order thru Sears (160.+), but will cancel the order if I do not need it.

Fist off the unit is operating ok it was designed to only spin after the water is let out. by you opening the lid and closing it you have paused the machine (opening the lid) and started it back up This function is also built in the timer to pause the machine then go into spin.. The timer sounds like it has a dead spot in it. is this the only place in the cycle it does this ???? or does it stick and not advance say in the Agitate portion of the cycle?? there is a small timer motor on the timer that advances it it could be going out l. If you check that out with no luck the part # for the timer is 3954449 is is about $102.00 at www.sears.com it is $109.00 at www.apdepot.com the little drive motor on the timer is not a replaceable part the whole timer will have to be replaced
Hope this Fixes Ya

Kenmore model 23832100 washer will not spin in rinse cycle kenmore model 23832100 washer fills, agitates, and drains, but will not spin. Makes noise after draining. BUT if I manually turn off the machine...


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

Kenmore 44152 3.5 high capicity washer will not spin


Open the lid of the washer and let it down gently to see if you hear a click when it closes. There is a lid switch that sometimes fails and prevents the washer from going into a spin cycle. If you don't hear the click when the lid closes, then you may need to have the lid switch replaced.
