Question about KitchenAid KAWS700L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Will only start water when in wash cycle

Working thru the cycles on the timer -
Does not start filling with water until it hits the agitate (wash) cycle
will not go into spin or rinse.
Buzzes only (no action from washer) in the spin cycle.

The timer would not start when pulled a couple of weeks ago but has worked fine until recently then yesterday started the above

My limited knowledge says the timer is blown.

  • The diaper pail we suggest using is the size medium Diaper Pail with Carbon Filter, or, if you want a really big pail, the American Diaper Association approved 54 QT Diaper Pail. We sell them at Diaper Safari! They are nice and big andboth have a slot for a Citrus Circle which helps eliminate odors.
  • Try using a mild and environmentally safe detergent like: Bi-O-Kleen, Allen' Naturally or ECOS. You can also use Arm & Hammer for sensitve skin or Sensi Clean - do not use Dreft!
  • A Citrus Circle or a little baking soda some tee tree oil in the bottom of the diaper pail liner will help against odors.
  • Diaper Pail Liners can be our re-usable waterproof pail liners or standard 13-gallon kitchen trash bags.
  • Sprinkle a few drops of BacOut Stain & Odor Eliminator on the diaper if "poop" got onto the diaper itself.
  • Adding a few drops of Tee Tree oil to the main wash leaves diapers smelling fresh and kills bacteria - not for pocket diapers.
  • Sun-dried diapers and covers become snow-white. Try this as often as the weather allows.
  • Use the dryer for a few minutes to soften sun-dried diapers that get stiff.
  • Wash and dry new diapers one to five times before wearing - for unbleached diapers this will remove the natural waxes and will fluff up the cotton, which gives the diapers their absorbency. You will only need to wash the covers, Fuzzi Bunz and AIO once or twice at the most.
  • Spray any solids off with the Mini Shower - it makes makes cleaning cloth diapers very easy
  • Don't let wet and clean diapers sit in the machine overnight.
  • For serious stain you can try something like Spay and Wash.

Kenmore washer 110.16112503 works in wash & spin cycle but not rinse. After wash cycle finished I hear a humming sound and the machine does nothing until I manually start spin cycle. Broken timer?


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

    Amana washer only works on delicate cycle


    Open the control panel. Unplug the timer and then plug it back in good and firm.
    If it does not work correctly after that,
    Replace your timer.
